Do you have elderly neighbors, relatives or friends who live alone? They may be nervous about trick-or-treaters (especially the tricksters) and appreciate an offer to help them greet and give out candy.
Some people live in places that don’t get trick-or-treaters, such as retirement communities or nursing homes. Pack up your costumed youngsters and bring them visiting to make the elder’s day.
It’s all too easy for the elderly to feel totally disconnected and isolated, and their feelings of loneliness can be toughest during holidays such as Halloween.
