- “Who’s going to carve the turkey this year now that Dad has died?”
- “I don’t have the energy or desire to shop, to decorate, or to be around others this year at Christmas.”
- “I just want to erase Chanukah this year. I’ll just feel too empty without my husband to celebrate.”
Thanksgiving, Christmas, Chanukah, Ramadan, Kwanza and New Year’s Day are annual holidays that can be a very difficult time for people who have experienced the death of someone loved. Memories of good times and togetherness at the holiday season serve to remind us of our loss. Watching others who are feeling thankful and are celebrating when we feel overwhelmed, lonely or sad can be very painful. Holidays force us to realize how much our lives have been changed by the loss of our loved one. Particularly in the first year, many bereaved are left with having to develop new holiday rituals and traditions.
The Time Is Now! “If you find yourself wondering whether the time has come to be actively involved in the lives, activities, and decisions of your aging parents or loved ones, then that time has indeed arrived. In fact, it may be overdue,’ says Clarice W. Dowdle, Founder, COO SeniorCareGivingToday.com and author of “Time for the Talk: The Ten Step Plan for Effective Senior Caregiving Today.”
Throughout most of her professional life in marketing and PR, Clarice W. Dowdle always life was about helping and hand holding others to achieve their goals. And, throughout most of her personal life it seemed in one way or another Clarice was also the one family member everyone would go to for help, advice or direction. Clarice realized after an intensive caregiving experience with her father last year, that there needed to be a face and voice for this issue…since there are over 65 million family caregivers in our country today, with the largest % of our population now being seniors.
Someone had to be honest, forthcoming, and explain the process of care-giving from the first onset of concern to the final transition. Not just facts and figures but real issues that face our baby boomer generation every day as they care of their parents and loved ones as well as the elderly that are now facing their “golden years” which for some are just not so golden.

Kindle the taper like the steadfast star
Ablaze on evening’s forehead o’er the earth,
