How to Survive Christmas

We asked our clients (people who are older and are a lot wiser than we are) for tips on how to survive this festive season.

  1. Try and have family fun and not family stress.
  2. Tell everyone beforehand “no drama”. Especially your drunk uncles.
  3. Share the work- tell your family “I’ll make the food if you’ll help wash up”.
  4. Take some adult time out to recuperate.
  5. Ask a CAREGiver to help out at home so you can spend more time with the family (Home Instead has you covered!)
  6. Stay hydrated! Make sure everyone has lots of alcohol :)
  7. Make an excuse and kick people out so you can have an early nights sleep.
  8. Ignore your doctor’s order for “no salt and no sugar” for just one meal!

From the Home Instead family to yours, Merry Christmas!
