Share a Meal with a Senior

While it’s a little difficult to gather over a home cooked meal this year, here are some ways you can bring the joy of the holidays to your senior loved ones and friends.

For many, Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for everything you have and celebrate the simple things: like the smell of home cooked food, the happiness of the people who matter most, the memories made around a table. Giving and sharing are wonderful ways to show gratitude, which is why this Thanksgiving holiday we encourage you to share a meal with a senior friend or loved one.

If you’re cautious of inviting others into your home, we recommend trying one of these instead:

  1. Prepare a meal for a senior friend before your Thanksgiving dinner and hand deliver it to their home.
  2. Offer to make their grocery run for them and, if you can, cover the cost.
  3. Write them a note to express your gratitude for their irreplaceable friendship.
  4. Send them a gift card so they can enjoy their favorite restaurant.

I took my granddaughter with me and shared a jar of homemade cranberry sauce with an elderly friend. He wont be alone. His family is bringing all the food, but thought he might like to share the cranberry sauce with them. He is a widower I met several years ago after he lost his wife of 55 years.

I did NOT do this mission, as we did not cook a Thanksgiving meal. (We had a terrible meal not worth sharing!)

After, our morning routine, Thanksgiving morning I helped to prepare client’s turkey. It was a completely different way I would have ever thought to try. I bet it turned out beautifully.
