The winter holidays are upon us, but things are different this year. The current climate means typical holiday celebrations are risky, especially for more vulnerable communities, like seniors. However, that does not mean that a fun holiday is entirely off the table. With some concessions and a bit of creativity, everyone can still savor the good cheer that they so deserve after a tumultuous 2020.


1. Virtual Holidays

Nothing can replace an in-person gathering with friends and family. However, virtual meetups can at least ease the quarantine blues. Thanks to numerous programs and apps, anyone can video chat with their loved ones, regardless of where they live. Eat together, unwrap gifts on camera, and enjoy the holiday while staying completely safe.
