The Granite Bay, Folsom, and Placer County, CA, home care professionals at Home Care Assistance suggest 4 local holiday-themed events that can add magic and happiness to your loved one’s Christmas season.

1. A Holiday Homecoming

The Dietrich Theater at Sierra College in Rocklin will be hosting this Christmas concert on December 17th and 18th at 2pm. Your loved one can have a joyous time listening to creative arrangements of classic Christmas songs performed by the well-known Placer Pops Chorale. Listening to holiday music can enhance your loved one’s mood and warm his or her heart.

2. Gingerbread House Contest

The Rocklin Event Center at 2650 Sunset Boulevard will be hosting this holiday baking event on December 16th from 6:30pm to 8pm. With the help of a family member or Placer County, CA, home caregiver, your loved one can show off his or her talent by creating a one-of-a-kind gingerbread house for the entire community to see. If your loved one doesn’t want to make a house for this contest, he or she can simply attend the event and vote for the creator of his or her favorite gingerbread house.

3. Breakfast with Santa

The Rocklin Event Center will also be hosting this holiday breakfast on December 17th from 8am to 11:30am. Your loved one and the rest of the family can begin making holiday memories together at this holiday event featuring a delicious pancake meal. After breakfast, your loved one can help the grandkids make creative crafts to take home. Before Santa leaves, your loved one needs to make sure to get his or her picture taken with the famous jolly fellow. 

4. Senior Holiday Trip

The Folsom Senior and Arts Center at 48 Natoma Street will be hosting this holiday tour for people over 55 on December 16th from 3pm to 10pm. The evening will begin with mingling and meeting new friends at a no-host dinner. Following dinner, your loved one will be taken by van to the Cal Expo Global Winter Wonderland extravaganza. After walking through the wonderland, your loved one will get back into the van and head off to explore many of the local holiday light attractions. 

If you are unable to attend these holiday events with your loved one, make sure he or she has transportation and a trusted companion to accompany him or her.
