Thanksgiving is a holiday that is celebrated by the entire family together and an excellent opportunity to express your love and gratitude towards the seniors of the family, your grandparents. Here are some tips from skilled nursing facility Denver caregivers to make the family gathering special for your elderly loved ones:
- Involve them into the preparations – your grandma will surely be happy to help you with time-tested kitchen tricks and to aide with the decoration process, while grandpa spends time with the boys, walking down memory lane;
- Display their favorite decorations – most elderly people have old decorations that are held in great value and that bring back memories that are told over and over again. Use those objects to complete your holiday decorations and to make your grandparents feel really at home;
- Take your grandparents to a place that they wish to see –most elderly people suffer from not being able to visit the places they are interested in because of their limited mobility or their inability to drive. Take your grandparents to see a place they have been longing to see – the weather might be chilly on Thanksgiving Day and during the weekend following it, but spending time and having fun together is surely a heartwarming experience for everyone.
