09 Nov 5 Ways to Make Diwali Special for The Elderly This year
Every year, this particular month invigorates a feeling of happiness in people and engulfs homes with a festive spirit. However, this year things have taken a different turn. Amidst the dark wave of COVID-19, Diwali 2020 celebrations will not be very bright for everyone.
This Diwali will be laden with its own set of rules, especially for the elderly. Apart from the social distancing norms, senior citizens have to be extremely careful about their health too.
But does this mean the fun and fervor of the festivity will be dampened? Of course, not!
Tribeca Care has introduced 5 ways in which you can still make the upcoming festival of lights a happy one.
What are the 5 ways in which you can make Diwali 2020 super fun for seniors?
For all those people who are stuck in this never-ending quarantine cycle, here is some great news. Diwali 2020 is approaching fast and this year it is time to raise the bar of celebrations with virtual twists:
Irrespective of which place of the world you live in, Diwali is one festival that lifts the festive spirit higher. It is mostly because the “festival of lights” is associated with some grand purchases. This year go for an online shopping spree with seniors and help them get new clothes for the festival.
- Treat Your Loved Ones with Gifts:
The COVID wave has surely introduced the social distancing norms, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the festivity. This Diwali you can opt for the digital method and send sweets, and gifts online to relatives and loved ones. Through this small step, seniors will feel an added ring of joy amidst the isolating terms.
- Hang Out with Family Through Virtual Meet-ups:
Diwali is synonymous with virtual gatherings. It is that time of the year when friends and family gather to spread the word of love and joy. This year, as things are quite different, there is a high chance that older adults will feel pangs of loneliness. Therefore, making Diwali for the elderly happens with virtual meet-ups through Zoom and Skype with family and friends.
Spread Togetherness Through a Game of Cards:
Diwali is all about celebrating the bond we have with our family. Therefore, dedicate this Diwali 2020 to the seniors by playing fun and interesting games, or taking selfies with them. You have absolutely no idea how special they will feel!
Say Hello to Scrumptious Treats
Diwali is that time of the year when we can indulge in scrumptious treats. Therefore, prepare some tasty recipes and play indulge in them with old friends. In this way, you can surely make them feel happy and mentally well amidst these negative times.
