Christmas Traditions around the world

Christmas Traditions around the world

Christmas 2020 is looking to be a Christmas like no other as a result of Covid-19. At David Phillip Estate Agents we have had to change some of our Christmas Traditions – the office party won’t be until Spring (we did have a lovely afternoon tea from Betty’s in the office) there’s no visiting Castle Howard to see the beautiful Christmas decorations and the tree, and the Harewood House Experience is a lot different too with its decorations too this year.

Christmas is a wonderful time of year for families getting together and enjoying the festivities, however this can be quite a challenging and worrying time for people living with dementia, and their carers and relatives.
For the 850,000 people living with dementia, Christmas can be a tiring and confusing time of year, routines are changed, more people are around the home, and mealtimes can be interrupted.
It can also be a difficult time for carers or relatives who notice changes in their loved ones such as memory loss or confusion, but it can also be worrying for relatives making sure that their loved ones are having a good time too whilst also feeling involved.
The Alzheimer’s society have provided tips on how to enjoy the festivities if you have someone staying with you over Christmas living with Dementia:-

When looking to sell a property, people often think that the New Year is the best time to market their property, and it really is an excellent time, however there is a definite advantage to looking to market your home before Christmas and the New Year rush .
Christmas is a time when family and friends are together, plans are formed for the next year and buying a new home, looking for a new job or moving to an area with a good school catchment area may all be on the horizons
