The holiday season is here. Though we’re still in the middle of a pandemic, I know that many of us are planning on celebrating to make things a little bit brighter. But before you get carried away with your holiday preparation, here are some things you have to consider to ensure a safe celebration, especially if you have a loved one receiving a medical service in Pennsylvania.
- Social distancing
If you’re planning on having an in-person gathering, limit the number of your guests and do it in your yard or outdoors instead of indoors. This way, you can still observe proper social distancing even when you’re together.
- Set rules
Before the celebration, set some rules to ensure the safety of all attendees. Require everyone to wear masks and follow social distance. Prohibit handshakes or hugs. Encourage everyone to wash their hands often and sanitize commonly touched items.
- Tone Down Holiday Traditions
If you’re used to having rowdy celebrations, consider toning it down this year, especially if you have a loved one with dementia. Loud noises and too much activity can overwhelm your loved ones and cause them to lash out. If possible, ask for advice and work with their dementia care provider.
