Tips to help make this Thanksgiving a heartwarming celebration of love, gratitude, and togetherness with our senior loved ones. Let’s embrace the opportunity to nurture meaningful connections this holiday! 

Planning & Participation

As we prepare for Thanksgiving, let’s not forget to include our senior loved ones in the festivities. Ask about their favorite recipes, share stories of past Thanksgiving celebrations, and involve them in simple tasks like folding napkins or decorating the table.

Prioritize Comfort and Well-being

Amidst the hustle and bustle of preparations, our senior loved ones may have specific needs. Consider asking a relative to assist them with getting their food and drinks, finding a comfortable place to sit, or taking breaks when needed.

Express Gratitude

Thanksgiving offers an ideal opportunity to express our heartfelt appreciation for our senior loved ones. Go around the dinner table, take time to share what you’re grateful for, and let your seniors know how much they mean to you.

Embrace Past and New Fall Traditions

Get your senior excited for the holiday season by planning a trip to a pumpkin patch or apple orchard. Choose a venue that is accessible to their needs, and enjoy the shared experience of picking pumpkins, carving festive designs, or savoring the flavors of fall.

Remember, Thanksgiving is about cherishing the company of our loved ones. Make the day memorable by trying something new together, watching a Thanksgiving-themed movie, or creating a new family tradition.

If you’re looking for a nurturing place where your senior loved one can thrive, we invite you to reach out to wish with any questions that you and your family may have and to schedule a tour. We’d love to show you around our comforting, uplifting, and loving home nestled in Queen Creek, Arizona.
