Day 194 - Xmas with Elders
I love this photo of my son and mother, holding hands and laughing over their hats. Mom had Alzheimer's, but she still had a great ability to enjoy. The holidays, with all the decorations and foods, delighted her. But seeing her family was the absolute best. I have always enjoyed sharing Xmas festivities with older folks, even those I'm not related to.
Elder Xmas Memories: My grandma, Daw (who owned no slacks) opening my gift to her, of yellow sweatpants... Lively staff and visiting family, dancing with residents (many with wheelchairs & walkers) at Silverado Senior Center... My great grandmother Dede at nearly 100, sitting in her rocker while we kiddos opened gifts... Sitting around the "quilt table" with many of my senior groups, sharing stories of childhood Christmases...
