A resident's perspective on Christmas
There is extra joy in being in a senior retirement community like Madrona Hills at Christmas time. Your friends come from all over the United States and bring their customs with them. What fun it is to walk through the homes and down the halls to view everyone’s special decorations.
A few years ago, I held an open house, inviting everyone. It turned out to really help me get to know my neighbors and enjoy my new friends. Usually during the holidays our families come to visit. Getting to know my new friends’ children and grandchildren is a special treat. Where we see only old faces day after day, it is so refreshing to see young faces and especially little babies!
As we visit around the tables in the dining room we hear about our friends special Christmas memories and get to share ours too.
The Madrona Hills senior living community always takes our bus full of singing, laughing, merry old souls to see the special Christmas themed areas. I can only hope that you and your family have as much fun! From us at Madrona Hills... Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Happy New Year!
