Family traditions are how we connect with each other across generations. By sharing our favorite events, experiences, silly games, gifts, and songs with each other, we build bonds that stand the test of time and make our family experiences unique. Passing down family traditions strengthens those bonds.
Those little things that you took for granted with your family, those things you thought every family probably did the same way until you started realizing that what makes every family unique, are your traditions. Keep reading for more tips on creating your own family traditions: ow.ly/Hx3G50LKmup
It's almost the season of giving, and we love giving back in our community! Volunteering is a great way for seniors to stay busy, and it is also of benefit for those around us. Volunteering is an activity that anyone can do, no matter their age.
For many seniors, volunteering creates a social environment and can create life-long bonds with others. For younger individuals, volunteering not only boosts self-esteem and fulfillment, but you can hear about others' life experiences through their eyes. The wisdom you can gain from a senior is priceless!
