Top Holiday Activities for Caregivers and their Clients

Now that the Christmas season is here, it’s time to fill our days with the holiday spirit! And what better way to start than by sharing ways to spend time with those you care about during this time of year through holiday activities?

Our team at Leading Home Care wants the Christmas season to be special for our clients and caregivers. So, we created a list of our favorite activities that you can do together to celebrate the holidays!

Spread Cheer by Sending Out Christmas Cards

Seeing everyone you love over the holidays isn’t always possible, but that doesn’t have to stop you from sharing holiday cheer with them. Sitting down and writing thoughtful cards can be a wonderful way to let those special people know you are thinking about them. And your caregiver can even help you pick out and write the cards. However, if you are feeling a little more creative and want to add a personal touch to your cards, try creating your own homemade cards together. This is an engaging, hands-on activity that can easily be made sensory-friendly! Sensory for Dementia has a great article listing homemade Christmas card ideas for seniors with Dementia, however, these ideas are also perfect for individuals of all ages living with developmental disabilities. 

Make Your Favorite Holiday Treats

A great way to get into the holiday spirit is to decorate around your house to make it feel extra warm and festive. If you like arts and crafts, you and your caregiver can get creative and make homemade ornaments and wreaths with craft paper or old Christmas cards. You can even put on some holiday tunes that will have you rocking around the whole house, not just the Christmas tree!

Look at the Lights

You and your caregiver can enjoy a nice walk or car ride around the neighborhood to look at the lights and decorations others have put up. This is a great way to get out of the house and celebrate the Christmas season without requiring too much effort. And while you are enjoying the decorations and lights, you and your caregiver can vote on your favorites. 

Watch Your Favorite Holiday Movies

There is no shortage of Christmas movies in the world, both new and old, and everyone has a few favorites they can name. So, on the days when you would rather stay cozy at home, you and your caregiver can have a fantastic time sitting down to watch each other’s favorite Christmas movies! Who knows, maybe you’ll have a new favorite to add to your list!
