Helping Seniors Fight the Holiday Blues (CUT A THON)

Helping Seniors Fight the Holiday Blues

at our third annual GLAM A THON (cut-a-thon) on November 27, 2013.

Helping senior fight the blues, some major factors contributing to holiday depression in the elderly are financial limitations, loss of independence, being alone or separated from loved ones, loss of mobility, failing eyesight (and lessening of the ability to write or read holiday correspondence).  It’s the small things that make a difference for lonely seniors during the holidays. A thoughtful card, a small gift…each of these tokens helps the senior to know that he or she has not been forgotten.
