Joy, Giving and Friendships
Key to Beating the Holiday Blues
Families and Friends of Senior Star Residents Will Celebrate the Holidays
at the Annual Holiday Public Open House on December 8th from 5-7pm.
(Davenport, IA) – For seniors, the holidays can be a time of mixed blessings: while the hustle and bustle of the season can bring back joyful memories of Christmases past, these memories can also be a source of depression if loved ones are not close by.
At Senior Star at Elmore Place, Davenport, the holidays are filled with the sounds of children’s laughter and song, tree decorating and eggnog by the fireplace, crafting projects like gingerbread house making, and community opportunities to see a holiday show or volunteer for others.
“The holidays here are unique and special,” says Executive Director Cathy Hughes. “Our holiday weeks are jam packed with opportunities for residents to make new friends, connect with children, create something beautiful, or enjoy an outing to see a good holiday show, concert or lights tour.
