Do you feel guilty about not taking care of your parent yourself? Do you feel guilty that you don’t visit or call enough—even though you regularly do both? Are you currently providing some level of care for your parent but still struggle with the feeling that it’s never enough? You’re not alone.
Here at The Esquiline, our beautiful grounds are full of people enjoying the Christmas season. Our diverse community celebrates the season in a variety of special ways and if you ask, you’re sure to find that every resident has a wonderful holiday tradition to share.
The shift from Thanksgiving to Christmas can be a little odd. We spend a week reflecting on all the many blessings in our lives and how grateful we are for all that we have.

Celebrating the holiday season is easy in Belleville. The only challenge you’re likely to run into is choosing your favorites from all the fun Belleville holiday events and activities. And that’s a good problem to have during this joyous holiday season!
