The holiday season can be a very trying time for seniors due to unmet expectations and a stronger underlying feeling of loneliness and boredom.
The holiday time may remind some of people and events gone from their lives. Advertisements bombard us with expectations of bliss, joy, gift giving and happy family reunions. For the holidays, we expect all siblings to be best friends. We now expect grandpa, whom we haven’t seen in ages, to be all smiles and hugs.
