My mother lives alone in an assisted living community in another state, and she tends to get very lonely during the holidays. How can I help her?

It is very easy for those who live in assisted living centers or nursing homes to feel isolated especially during the holiday season. Until you are able to go visit your family member, it’s important to make the extra effort to show them you love and care about them. A care package, an extra phone call, the occasional flowers, or a Christmas card are good ways to show your loved one that you are thinking about him or her.
