The holidays are about spreading joy. We often don’t realize that the holidays aren’t joyful for everyone, and can be very lonely for much of the elderly community. Research says that 40% of the elderly population often experience loneliness.
It is especially hard for the elderly, who have lost loved ones and have had family move away making it difficult to be with them.
KX News went to the Edgewood Village Assisted Living Home to see how they try to give residents a sense of cheer.
