The holidays are a wonderful time at Copley at Stoughton. The lobby and hallways are decked out in garlands and poinsettias, with the annual winter mural as the focal point. We do our best to ensure everybody enjoys the holiday festivities, this includes all faiths. Throughout December, we host holiday-themed parties, events and activities, musical guests, trips into town, and more.
But what are the holidays without family?
The holidays can be a lonely time if nobody comes to visit. I understand December can be a hectic time with children’s recitals, parties, Christmas shopping, and of course the unexpected blizzard; but I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to see your loved ones during this time whether here at Copley, or elsewhere.
New residents, in particular, seem to have a harder time, especially if they recently lost a loved one. Visits from family and friends become even more important to them. The more time you can spend with your loved ones, the better. Even if you have plans to see each other, an occasional pop-in when you have a few minutes to spare can really make someone’s day. Outings are another wonderful idea if your loved one is able. Going to do some shopping for the family or a quick lunch out can help them stay in the Christmas spirit.
The biggest celebration is usually on Christmas Day, of course. Even if you have to travel to visit extended families, it doesn’t mean you have to skip Christmas. We encourage families to celebrate early. Copley has wonderful facilities upstairs that family can use to gather, exchange presents, and spend time together. Any day can be Christmas Day! We have different areas you can reserve including our Plaza and our Pub. Just give us a call, and we’ll arrange the details with you.
I can tell you firsthand that the effort will be worth it. I remember when my father was here, and we got the family together last year at Christmas. We made great memories, and I and my family will talk about that day for years to come.
Happy Holidays, everyone, and a very Merry Christmas!
