Holiday Time

Holidays are particularly hard for seniors who are alone. Throughout the month of December, there’s a constant reminder on the radio, television and newspaper about gift giving  – which indicates you actually have people to give to . For the seniors that are part of the Little Brothers-Friends of the Elderly program, they are either invited to holiday event or visited in their home. I recently visited Chicago HQ on Ashland and there are some very dedicated people making sure that every senior has a holiday gift. I’m not just talking a pair of slippers (although that is sometimes what the senior really wants); I’m talking about thoughtful gifts for each individual senior.
