New Year’s Eve Activities for Seniors

New Year’s Eve Activities for Seniors

New Year’s Eve is typically full of excitement and celebration, with parties that last well into the first day of January. However, seniors may feel that they cannot celebrate the way they used to, since most of them are physically unable to stay awake until midnight. We think it is important to incorporate all ages into celebrating the holidays, especially one as fun as New Year’s Eve! Here are some fun activities for New Year’s Eve that your senior loved one will enjoy.

• Crafts! Your loved one might love to draw, paint or sketch. Creating the perfect creative environment can bring happiness to your loved one. Consider finding a comfy place to sit and providing all the supplies they may need. Is your loved one not an artist? No problem! They can use glue and glitter, beads and string or adult coloring books!

• Cooking or baking their favorite foods! Does your loved one love pasta, cookies or your world-famous brownies? Consider cooking or baking with your loved one and then sitting and enjoying the food together! After all, who doesn’t love great food and even better company?

• Talk! Sometimes, the best thing you can do is just spend time with your loved one and give them your undivided attention. We suggest making coffee or tea and sitting down to chat with your loved one.

• Watch a movie—their choice! During the cold winter months, snuggling up with a warm blanket and watching a good movie just fits the bill. Consider asking your loved one what their favorite movie is and creating the perfect home cinema, complete with popcorn and warm blankets!

• Switch your countdown! Your loved one is more than likely not going to be able to stay up until midnight to watch the ball drop or celebrate the New Year. Consider having a celebration in the morning and counting down to 12 noon instead. They will still have a countdown and feel as though they celebrated, but they will not have to fight to stay awake.

New Year’s Eve is a fun holiday that allows you to ring in the new year with friends and family that are close to your heart. This year, consider implementing these tips to help your senior loved one feel included!

I like working for 24hr home care because they allow me to have a flexible schedule and I can take advantage of how far away from home I'd like to travel for work.

Pros: It’s nice working here. With this agency, you have a very flexible schedule. There are a lot of 4-5 hour shifts, although they do offer overnight shifts as well from 8 hours, maybe 12. You can qualify for employee benefits after 1 year of working here. They have “emergency rate” wages as well, these are last minute shifts that can raise from $1-5 an hour; if they hired you at $14hr and they give you an (e-rate) emergency rate then it’ll probably be from $15, $16, $17+ depending on the case. Traveling is required and they did have a virtual interview with me. They have employees working 24 hours if you decide to call them. They use the CC-Go app to clock in and clock out. They also give you a link to a corporate perks website that will give you discounts on phones, plane tickets, hotels ect. Cons: Communication with the office/managers can be difficult at times because when you call, anyone/random person can answer. My personal recommendation as a company request for employee(s): Sending each caregiver a “care package” in a ziplock bag with gloves, masks, hand sanitizer, ect. in case a facility or client doesn’t have the supplies needed. Having these “care packages” would help the company prevent any further sicknesses when dealing with urination and bowel movements if anything were to happen.
