The “Holiday Season” is supposed to be a happy time shared with friends, neighbors, and family. It might include comfort food, family traditions and conversations by the fireplace — spending quality time with loved ones during the Holidays is something we cherish. Unfortunately, this special time of the year can turn out to be a time when joy is replaced with sadness, love with anger, and contentment with anxiety. For many, the Holidays magnify losses and become a time of year that’s hard for seniors and families to navigate. For families coping with their loved ones loss of independence, the Holidays can be bittersweet times, filled with stress and frustration. Beth Rubio, our Director of Client Services, has been holding Educational Programs throughout Middlesex County on coping with stress during the Holidays. She offers signs to look for as well as tips to help. The video below is her presentation at the Stow Council on Aging on November 20, 2017. Enjoy.
