With the sun out shining bright and winter starting to loosen its grip, it’s the best time to celebrate spring and Easter! Just like any other special occasion and holiday, it is possible to keep up your favorite Easter traditions while staying in an assisted living community. If you have a loved one who lives in a retirement community, remember to extend the special traditions to include them as well. Spending time with your loved ones is the best part of celebrating the holidays and everyone appreciates feeling loved. Read on to learn more about how to celebrate this Easter in assisted living!
Join in Community Activities
Many communities do a fantastic job of planning holiday events and activities for their residents. Check with the activity director to see what activities are available. Invite your family or friends to share in the event or have a meal together.
Continue An Old Tradition
Maybe you used to color Easter eggs, bake cookies, or volunteer at a local charity every year. There is no reason why you can’t continue these old traditions. Many places provide transportation to local stores where you will be able to purchase supplies or bring you to locations to volunteer. Keep up the treasured tradition so you can feel at home.
Create A New Tradition
A new living situation is a perfect opportunity to create new Easter traditions with your neighbors, friends, and loved ones. You can come up with some easy and fun activities to do together such as dyeing Easter eggs or decorating Easter baskets. Gather together to share memories while making new ones.
If you live in a place where Spring is here, take the chance to get outdoors for a nice walk. Go for a stroll with a family member or friend and enjoy the beautiful weather and promise of the new season. If you are not mobile or it is still too cold to go out, spend some time near the window to soak in the sunshine for some Vitamin D and think about the warmer days ahead.
Focus on Faith
For many people of faith, Easter is one of the most important holidays of the year. Many retirement communities offer Easter services or mass, so residents can continue their traditions. If your loved one stays in assisted living, offer to bring them with you for your church service. This can in fact be a huge gesture to them.
