Be sure to provide your guests with friendly reminders about how to engage with your loved one. Make sure they introduce themselves properly upon arrival. They should provide their name and who they are as soon as they arrive. Remind loved ones to practice patience and understanding if your senior loved one appears distressed or uncomfortable or does not engage with a family member.
Finally, take a photo together. You will cherish the memory for years to come and you can put the photo in a frame for them to enjoy throughout the coming year.
