Seniors during Thanksgiving Season need more thanks than you would know. Many of us remember being young and waiting at the table for a heaping plate of food on Thanksgiving and who else but our grandparents were the ones cooking up our favorite dishes. While some people are still lucky to have their senior loved ones cooking, many of us have moved forward and make our Thanksgiving dinners. This Thanksgiving season, Francois Bend wants to think about the fact that our elders have played a vital role in our lives, especially during the Holiday season.
At Francois Bend, the highest quality care for seniors is our priority. If you know of a senior that is going to be alone on Thanksgiving, we urge you to welcome them in your home and experience what they did long ago. Having as many generations as you can during your Thanksgiving dinner is extremely eye opening and serves as a time for elder wisdom. Our elders are still a unique source of advice for our younger people. Encouraging these interactions will make your Thanksgiving something to be thankful for.
During your Thanksgiving feast, encourage your young people to ask your seniors questions that are relevant to them. Right now, one of the biggest topics in the country. Although we talk about this topic more in modern times, it is something that has been a problem for as long as people have existed. Asking your loved seniors how they handled being picked on will give your younger ones the advice that they need from someone much older and wiser.
In addition, even though your senior loved ones might not be able to make their favorite dishes for Thanksgiving anymore, you should ask them to share their favorite recipes and make them! Here at Francois Bend we are already revving up for a fantastic Thanksgiving celebration! We love seeing the look of joy on our resident’s faces. From all of us, we want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving! We are so thankful for you!
