We know that nursing homes or retirement homes can be a bit, um, boring. There’s lots of white surroundings, tile floors, acoustic ceilings, etc. There can be little joy surrounding our elderly loved ones.
We also know that Christmas and Chanukah holidays can be especially tough on our elderly friends. Memories of those who have passed remain strong and bring on feelings of sadness or even tears.
That’s why it’s very important to make sure we pep up our senior friends during holiday times. Some simple Christmas decorations might just do the trick – in any case, they can’t hurt!
Instead of the typical poinsettia plants that nursing staff may have to care for, the Christmas decorations I’ve chosen to highlight require no care. Just a quick installation and you’re done.
Christmas Stockings and Christmas Stocking Holders
There may not be a mantle in Grandma’s room but a Christmas stocking is a necessary Christmas decoration. These stocking holders work for any flat surface.

Christmas And Hanukkah Window Clings
One of the very easiest Christmas decorations for any home are holiday-themed window clings. Easy to put up and remove (no residue at all), window clings are sure to bring a smile to all who see them.
And, for those who celebrate Chanukah instead of Christmas, there’s even some window clings for us.

Battery-Operated Christmas Candle Lights
It’s amazing how just adding a candle to a window brings in the Christmas spirit. Why not share that spirit by buying extra for other nursing home residents?

Battery-Operated Christmas Lights
One of the easiest way to bring a merry Christmas or Hanukkah spirit to a boring environment is to add in some great lighting. I really love the battery operated Christmas light – these have a timer so they come on when you want and turn off 6 hours later.
Battery Christmas lights also come with a remote where, in some cases, even the color of the light can be changed!

Small Artificial Christmas Trees
For the last few years, we’ve had puppies in the house so a real Christmas tree has been out of the question.
Taking a hint from Charlie Brown, we’ve chosen to decorate our house with a small artificial tree. Although the pine scent is missing, a small artificial tree might be just what’s needed to brighten up a nursing home room – note: add some of those battery operated Christmas lights and your loved one will certainly be in the holiday spirit.
