Brighten Christmas For An Elderly Loved One With An Artificial Christmas Tree
It’s that time of year (almost) when people around the world begin thinking of holiday preparation, and nothing says Christmas like the traditional Christmas tree.
Live Christmas trees do have some advantages over artificial varieties such as the smell of balsam fir filling the house. Ah, that smell just rings in Christmas, doesn’t it?
But, live Christmas trees also mean endless cleaning up of balsam fir needles on the floor each day, not to mention watching to make sure your elderly loved one’s dog doesn’t ‘water the tree!’
And, at the end of the Christmas season? You can expect hundreds of sharp fir needles to be dropped when the tree is brought to the trash pile. If your elderly loved one has hardwood floors, dropped Christmas tree needles can make for a slippery surface.
How Artificial Christmas Trees Have Evolved Over The Years
Artificial Christmas trees – aka fake Christmas trees – used to be stiff with needles that were plastic-looking. And, there always seemed to have this winding green garland thing to cover the green metal post.
And, the fake trees were a nightmare to put together. Each branch had its own hole and once inserted, the branches had to be separated and spread out to resemble (sort of) a real branch.
Too much work for me or any elderly loved one.
A good quality fake Christmas tree can last, literally, decades. They’re made that way nowadays!
I’ve seen fake Christmas trees that look so real, you’d find it hard to believe they weren’t freshly cut from the tree farm. With less complicated set up, a variety of sizes, and no watering or care, it makes it so much easier for elders to have a beautiful tree.
With no upkeep whatsoever, an artificial tree will work well for a senior who may have mobility or weakness issues. In addition, artificial Christmas trees are far safer for elders who may forget to water the tree causing it to dry out and become a potential fire hazard.
And for seniors who might otherwise struggle to decorate a Christmas tree, many artificial trees come fully lit and decorated and some are even collapsible, requiring no assembly.
From tabletop versions to full size, there truly is a holiday tree to suit every loved elder in your life.
