Luxor Nursing and Rehab at Mills Pond with Tips for a Successful Thanksgiving with Seniors

Thanksgiving is one of the holidays where residents living in senior communities like nursing homes and assisted living facilities are picked up and taken to a relative’s house for a big celebration.

This is a wonderful thing you can do for your loved one, but there are some factors you need to take into account in order to make sure that his or her experience in your home is a comfortable and safe one.

Luxor Nursing and Rehab at Mills Pond would like to share these three tips to ensure a happy Thanksgiving for all involved.


  • Be Mobility Friendly


Be sure to understand if there are any mobility issues. Can your aging relative get up and downstairs okay? Is there enough room in your home for a wheelchair or walker to maneuver safely? Make sure the table is accessible, along with a first-floor restroom if there are issues with climbing stairs.


  • Be Mindful of Medication


Be sure to talk to a staff member at the facility (or read the patient information that is enclosed with prescriptions) to become aware of the side-effects that are possible with your senior’s medications. Many medications have strong interactions with alcohol, dairy, citrus, and green vegetables, so be sure you know what you’re dealing with before you serve any food or drink.


  • Watch for Signs of Exhaustion


Being socially involved as a part of the family is a great benefit to the health of a senior, but they may exhaust easily, especially if they are taken out of their routine and into a new environment. Make sure they are well-hydrated and nourished during their stay, and don’t be surprised if they say they are tired and would like to return home earlier than you might anticipate.
