As the Christmas music is playing softly in the background, I search for just the right photos to use for a Christmas ad campaign. Even sitting at my desk, I can almost feel the wisps of cold air on my cheeks and smell the fireplace aroma that settles a heart. I look at one picture after the next with a wave of emotion sweeping over my soul. Each one seems to revive some long-forgotten memory of Christmases past. I take a long look at a sweet image of a home decorated for the holidays. When, almost as if in a divine appointment, the song “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” begins playing in my app. Next song up? “There’s No Place like Home for the Holidays,” and with that, the seasonal emotions kick into full gear.
The lump in my throat grows. The tears make their way to the very edge of my eyelids. I savor a few beautiful memories of my Father and Mother, aka, Mr. and Mrs. Christmas. Fully realizing now what was lost to me then, is all the sentiment, love, and the work that went into every single magical Christmas moment. Each one was craftily and carefully created to bring about the most joy possible and the best memories ever. That was their challenge, and it was the goal they so easily met every year.
I hope they knew they achieved that goal. Our parents thoughtfully created those memories to last. And even now, they do. We all carry those memories today. But I digress, although it was beautiful. Thank you for hanging out with me in that space for a minute.
The point? The point is every family has a story, right? Every family has Christmas memories. We here at ECG hope yours are in a positive category and not in the “My weird Uncle Ray ruins it every year” category. If you smile when you think of them, you’re the one we want to reach today. You. You and your memories of days-gone-by. You, and those memories you are counting on making in the future.
It’s inconceivable even to allow your mind to think there will be one day that there will be no more memories of your loved ones at the holidays. Well, not any new ones being made anyway. We never considered this year, or that year would be the last year. We always took it for granted they’d be there every Christmas season. you know, kind of like the tree, or the music, or the gifts, which are just always there somehow. It was a taken-for-granted given that there’s no place like home. It never dawned on us that it would ever be different than it was back then. Until now.
No Place Like Home for the Holidays, especially for Boomers
Every Christmas, an average 10,000 Baby Boomers turn 65 years-of-age. At the time of this writing, just as the Motley Fool states, that fact will remain a fact for another decade. As Boomers age, they have different ideas about what their own 60’s and 70’s look like. They see themselves active, still employed, at least part-time. Traveling, working, playing, and living. They don’t consider themselves to be old. And they certainly don’t see themselves not residing in their own homes. And Christmas future? No worries, right?
The sad truth is more and more Baby Boomers are heading towards a possible transition into a facility, and it’s not pretty– especially when the reason they are now facing that dilemma could have been drastically reduced or even eliminated!
When they had that knee replacement, they could have been reminded of when to take those meds correctly. When they had that “minor” cardiac event, they could have received intervention within minutes and reduced the amount of damage their body sustained. And on and on it goes. It’s technology that can prevent some of these life-altering moments and offer immediate assistance if one of them becomes a crisis. ECG technology that knows your name, understands your needs, and is discreet and stylish. It’s technology that my Mom and Dad could have significantly benefitted from in their day. And this technology was created, in part, because it is true that there’s no place like home for the holidays.
