Join Transitions in our efforts to brighten the Holiday Season for our local seniors in Hospice Care.

Transitions would like to invite the community to come together in spreading joy and holiday cheer through the gift of Holiday Cheer-Grams. Fun for the family and all ages to participate, we will be providing paper cards to seniors who may be isolated from friends and family during this holiday season.

Nearly 30 percent of people 65 or older live alone, and each year there are many seniors who have fewer friends and family members to depend on for care and companionship, which often leads to social isolation. The holidays can be an especially difficult time for those who are living alone.

By creating a Holiday Cheer-Gram, you can help bring comfort and a smile to a patient in hospice this holiday season. Imagine the smile on the face or the joy in the heart of a senior receiving a hand-colored or decorated drawing, or a hand-written holiday greeting expressing care and warm wishes.

How to participate:

Print and design your Holiday Cheer-Gram from one of the templates below. Decorate however you see fit: handwritten greeting, glitter, markers, ribbon, writing your favorite poem, decoupage from old magazines, or create your very own design. The only limitation is your imagination! If you would rather not use the template, we would love to receive any type of holiday card you are willing to write or design.

Once completed, send your Cheer-Gram to your local Transitions Office:
