While the holiday season is a time of joyous anticipation and good cheer for most of us, the holidays can also bring a sense of loss and sadness for some senior adults. These feelings can result from the effects of aging and illness, or the sense of loneliness and isolation that accompany the loss of a spouse. 

Even for the most physically and emotionally healthy seniors, it is essential to remember that your love, presence and involvement with them during the holiday season can be the most meaningful gift they receive.

This is particularly true for older Americans, some of whom may be already dealing with vision, balance, mobility or general health challenges.
