Holiday program seeking to provide hope for the holidays

Published 8:00 am Saturday, November 17, 2018

For many people, the holidays are not happy or joyous, cheerful or jolly.

The season can bring stress, anxiety and depression.

To help individuals who suffer rather than celebrate, Senior Life Solutions is offering “Hope for the Holidays,” an outreach program designed to help people deal with negative emotions and stress during the season of family and festivities.
