- About Us
Will you be wishing senior loved ones a sweet New Year this Rosh Hashanah? Whether your senior family lives in a senior living community, their own home, or with you in your home, there are many ways to bring sweetness and happiness into their lives during the high holidays and throughout the year.
Happiness Changes With Age
Studies have shown that what makes people happy changes with age. For younger adults, the “sweet spot” is novelty. New and extraordinary events bring them high measures of happiness. For older adults, especially after age 70, the “sweet spot” is familiarity. The joy of day-to-day occurrences brings them greater happiness and a feeling of peace and calm.
Experiences, Not Things
One constant about happiness across all age groups is that experiences bring greater happiness than things. And, experiences shared with others bring the most happiness. For seniors, a year of experiences that celebrate the everyday with friends and family will be sweet, indeed!
Sweet Experiences for Seniors
Here are some tips for creating great experiences that bring sweetness and joy to your loved one in the coming year:
