Christmas is just around the corner and many residents of care homes are excited to add a little Christmas spirit to their residences. Because space tends to be restricted within each person’s dedicated space, we have come up with a list of ways to decorate that don’t take up too much space but can provide the warm holiday cheer that everyone in the community is looking forward to.
Colourful garlands do not take up much space, and can be used as simple accents along a wall or window to create a lovely winter look. Attach garland to walls with thumbtacks to spell out words such as “Joy” for a neat twist on the garland decorations.
– Pine Cones
Pine cones are easy to find and plentiful. Spend some time hunting for them, then decorate them with white paint and glitter for a celebratory twist. These decorated pine cones can be placed around rooms and residences for a subtle Christmassy touch.
Stockings can be hung anywhere where thumbtacks are allowed to be used – even if there is no fireplace.
Strings of twinkly lights can be hung around the room with simple tape or thumbtacks. The lights can even be hung in the shape of a Christmas tree or other fun shape.
Spread the holiday cheer in your resident care home this holiday season with these fun Christmas tips. Residents at a senior care center will love the celebratory spirit as we come into the season of giving!
