This time of year is often referred to as the season of giving.  We share our time, our resources, and our goodwill with others. It seems that this time of year solicits our hearts to reach into our pockets and dig a little dee per to help other less fortunate people. We give gifts to our loved ones and often we give to charities at this time as well. We may be busy throughout the year but at year’s end we think more of others. 

Many organizations remind us by offering to collect items, or offer charitable activities such as to volunteer at shelters, to donate to food drives, to participate in toy drives, and to contribute to fundraising campaigns. You might have even found yourself taking part in random acts of kindness.  You might buy someone’s lunch or buy someone’s order at a store or fast food restaurant. The season of giving.

We like to think, giving is not only about material gifts; it is also about giving in other ways such as to lend a listening ear, offer emotional support, or simply be there for someone who needs your time. It is a time to be grateful for what we have and to appreciate the importance of human connection and compassion.

This spirit of giving in this season of giving is often influenced by cultural and religious traditions. For example, the Christian tradition is emphasized by giving during the Christmas season as a time to reflect on the giving of the gift of the Magi to the baby Jesus.  Similarly, other religious and cultural holidays such as Hanukkah, Diwali, and Kwanzaa also incorporate acts of giving and sharing.

Don’t Forget Someone You Know Who is At Home

This season reminds us of the importance of selflessness and the power of kindness.  It is a time when people look beyond themselves and reach out to those in need, making a positive impact on individuals, families, and communities. Ultimately, the season for giving encourages us to practice empathy, generosity, and compassion not only during this time but throughout the year.

Happiest of Holiday Seasons

As you may have seen, we have started a Foundation to assist in helping those who need assistance in their  ability to afford home healthcare.  Any time during the year, not just this season of giving, people who require home healthcare are house bound.  We know they appreciate your spending time with a visit, a phone call, or even giving on behalf of others who might not be able to afford staying at home to heal. Be sure to check out our website.

We thank you for any participation involved with our home healthcare patients!  Happy Holidays!
