Making a Pause for Thanks with SeniorCare Homes



At this time of year, the idea of gratitude takes center stage, creating a special moment before the craziness of the December holiday making begins. Much like love, gratitude has an endless well of possibility, one that expands each time we show appreciation to another or when someone returns our gesture of kindness. Throughout the day, week, month and year we have multiple opportunities to demonstrate this to others. Too often we aren’t able to adequately express the gratitude we feel. This is not an intended action or because of a personal slight, but more likely can be attributed to the day-to-day aspects of life finding us running from one point to another. These days we’re only thinking of the next thing to do and how to fit everything into a single day.

Inserting a Natural Pause

Thanksgiving, a time when many of us gather with friends and family over an abundant spread of food, is an excellent reminder to pause for a moment and be thankful for our many blessings in life. These can be the so-called small things, a smile delivered to a stranger, the pay-it-forward gesture at the local coffee shop, or the words or notes of gratitude shared with a friend or co-worker. Taken separately, it’s sometimes hard to imagine how these small things can make a difference but they do, particularly when it feels this gesture is the only moment of kindness or softness in an otherwise demanding day.

A Note of Gratitude

Here at SeniorCare Homes, we are in a special place be able to offer family-style living for individuals dealing with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease and dementia. In order to lessen the effects of depression and disorientation associated with memory diseases, SeniorCare Homes caregivers work to create a warm living environment that includes the small touches not available in larger memory care facilities. During this time of Thanksgiving, we would like to offer our sincere thanks to the caregivers and families who tirelessly love and care for our residents. We understand that caring for someone with a memory-related disease can be physically and emotionally challenging. It is with sincere appreciation that we want to recognize these tireless individuals who give heart and soul in all that they do.
