Celebrating New Year's Day in Memory Care

Families often find that celebrations with their loved ones in memory care are easier when they embrace new traditions. For instance, it may not be practical to expect your loved one to stay up until midnight on New Year’s Eve. Instead, consider throwing a New Year’s Day celebration, complete with a countdown to the first noon of the year.

Bring the festivities to your loved one’s assisted living home, with an array of holiday foods and beverages. Give every resident a party hat and party horn. Toast to the New Year with champagne glasses of milk or sparkling juice instead of alcohol. You could even show a pre-recorded New Year’s Eve countdown on the TV. Other possible activities include writing lists of New Year’s resolutions and doing simple craft projects.

Families are always welcome to visit their loved ones at Avalon Memory Care, a home-like dementia care location in Dallas, Arlington, and Houston. Questions about our Alzheimer’s care services may be directed to a friendly staff member at (214) 752-7050.
