Gathering Responsibly for the Holidays

It’s the holiday season and all of us at HealthSense wish you and your loved ones a very happy, healthy and joyous holiday season! As we look to show our love and appreciation, spending time with others is the most precious gift we can give them. We can wrap this gift with respect and care by gathering responsibly, especially among vulnerable older adults. This means adhering to the scientific best practices of being fully vaccinated and boosted. Consider keeping gatherings small and intimate and connect with larger circles of family and friends virtually with a festive holiday theme to create a joyful inclusive experience. With the everchanging updates on the Omicron variant, we, at HealthSense, highly suggest getting tested prior to any holiday gathering, as well.

Stay safe and Happy Holidays!

If you are still looking for the perfect gift for an older loved one on your holiday list, our elves at HealthSense have you covered.
