Grandma Mary's Story - Christmas Celebrations Ho! Ho! Ho!

It's been a really exciting month for mama. In the lead up to christmas, we have been really busy. Under the umbrella of Christmas, its given me many opportunities to have conversations and activities with mama. Mama's room has been decorated with christmas lights for the past two months, she loves it, I don't think I will take them down. It's also been a busy period at the nursing home, where volunteers come to carol, staff are busy decorating and organising parties, and also a time where mama puts in even more effort than usual to look pretty. We had her hair and nails done too, in time for festivities. And she takes even more care to pick out her clothes. so she can look pretty for all the photos. We get busy talking about presents for the staff, talking about the christmas party programmes, enjoying the carols, taking pics of every tree we come across, and making a lot of new friends, and visiting the old friends. Mama loves being social, and christmas gives her lots of opportunities to have conversations and just have fun. Although mama can't join us at the ASPIRE55 annual christmas potluck at our clubhouse this year, I keep her in the loop with everything we do there (I show her lots of pics and videos), after all, Mama is my no.1 fan, ambassador for the club and motivation behind it.
