The holidays are traditionally a time of year when families get together to celebrate. In many cases, when loved ones are disbursed across the country, this is often the first time all year when the family is reunited. For adult children returning home to visit a senior loved one, the changes they see in their family member’s appearance can sometimes be shocking. They may be unprepared for how much an aging parent has been struggling.
Even when families talk on the phone several times a week, an aging parent may be unwilling to open up about the problems they are experiencing. It’s not unusual for us to talk with panicked families throughout the holiday season who are in a frantic search to find a senior living community while they are home. Even at that, many families are reluctant to discuss the issue or bring their loved one(s) by for a visit during the holidays.
Surprisingly, the holidays can be an ideal time to visit a senior living community like The Classic. From the festive décor, the jam-packed schedule of events, the holiday season in a senior living community is very lively!
Why Visit The Classic During the Holidays?
While adult children may feel like the holidays are a terrible time of the year to talk about moving to a senior living community, the opposite might actually be true.
Below are a few reasons you should consider touring The Classic when you visit your senior loved one this holiday season.
Family Input: Because families are often together during the holidays, it can be an ideal time to discuss senior care options and to visit communities together.
Enjoy the Festivities: The Classic is especially lively and festive during the holidays. Youth groups visit to entertain, school choirs perform, and the halls are decked! The whole spirit of our community can be very appealing to a senior who may be feeling isolated living alone at home.

You can beat the rush by exploring your options and… if The Classic is deemed as your loved one’s destination, getting your deposit in and getting on our wait list will guarantee that you will get a call from us sooner when a unit becomes available.
