Making New Holiday Traditions

The first holiday season after a move to a senior community can sometimes be stressful and difficult for your senior loved one. Creating new traditions can help with the transition and make the holiday season less stressful for everyone. Although your family holiday events may have been held at your senior loved one’s home in the past, holding gatherings at another family member’s home going forward can make things easier. Have your senior loved one help with one or two tasks that keep them involved without overwhelming them, and take advantage of the many fun holiday events this season!

Holiday Dental Wellness Guide

Maintaining dental health during the holidays is crucial for a joyful season. Amid festive indulgences, be mindful of sugary treats, limiting their intake to protect teeth from decay. Stay hydrated to enhance saliva production, a natural defense against harmful bacteria. Ensure regular brushing and flossing to prevent plaque buildup, and consider sugar-free gum for a quick oral refresh. Moderation is key, as alcohol and acidic foods can erode enamel. Schedule a post-holiday dental checkup to address any concerns promptly. Prioritize oral care to keep your smile bright throughout the celebrations, promoting a healthy and happy holiday season.

Holistic Healing Approach

Acupuncture is versatile, addressing a wide range of issues through the stimulation of channels beneath the body’s surface. By inserting needles into specific points, it alleviates symptoms or pain caused by ‘traffic jams’ in these channels. If you think about these “traffic jams” like a kinked water hose, the water cannot go through and then by freeing this kink the water can then run smoothly and pain or discomfort in the body is alleviated. At the Remedy Room, we support you at every stage, aiming to naturally rebalance the body in conjunction with other treatments. This holistic approach, rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine, promotes relaxation by closely engaging with the central nervous system. K

Transforming Self-Sabotage into Self-Mastery by Brianna Wiest
