Are you searching for ways to include a senior loved one in holiday activities?

Covid-19 makes family gathering challenging! However, it is still possible to make aging loved ones feel included, especially if you are all under the same roof. 

  1. Create family costumes from household items.
  2. Decorate the porch for trick or treaters. 
    1. Make sure to follow the recommended Covid-19 safety guidelines. Consider putting a bowl of candy on the porch and greeting trick or treaters through the glass door if you have one.
  3. Video chat with grandkids or family members to see them dressed up in costumes.
  4. Tell ghost stories while making hot chocolate or Halloween themed treats.
  5. Plan an outdoor “ghost hunt.” Think Easter Egg hunt but on Halloween with close family members.
    1. An outdoor activity makes it easier for social distancing. Follow Covid-19 safety recommendations.
  6. Video Chat and tell ghost stories with grandkids.
  7. Watch classic scary movies.
  8. Go to a drive-in movie theater.
  9. Decorate Halloween themed cookies.

We recommend that everyone follow Covid-19 safety recommendations and social distance while finding ways to remain emotionally close.
