How Caregivers from Visiting Angels Denver Can Help You Spend Thanksgiving 2020 with Your Senior Loved One
Here’s how our caregivers are helping families and seniors in Wheat Ridge, Denver, Golden and surrounding areas in Colorado celebrate Thanksgiving safely during the COVID-19 pandemic
Holidays are right around the corner and with COVID-19 protocols still in full effect, it will be tricky for many families to coordinate their yearly gatherings, especially with our senior loved ones who are at higher risk if exposed to COVID-19.
However, there are still many ways that families can get together and safely celebrate Thanksgiving this year and Visiting Angels Denver is here to help. Our highly trained and compassionate team of caregivers can assist your senior loved ones to attend or even prepare meals for the occasion.
Make Thanksgiving Dinner Together
When it comes to food, Thanksgiving really is the holiday that keeps on giving. Most people have a few signature dishes that they bring every year, however some seniors may no longer be able to cook by themselves due to physical limitations due to age-related conditions.
Visiting Angels Denver can lend a helping hand when needed through the unique services our caregivers provide. Our caregivers can assist with anything from meal preparation, setting the table, washing dishes and providing meaningful companionship during the entire process.
We realize how important it is for families to get a chance to interact with each other and spend the holidays together, which is why we are committed to doing everything in our power to help make it happen, no matter how strange things are in 2020.
Spend Quality Time with Your Loved One
Spending quality time with family members is what Thanksgiving is all about and at Visiting Angels Denver, we want to help you enjoy this quality time however we can. If you are unable to travel to see loved ones, consider watching a movie or TV show you both enjoy and call them to reminisce over fond memories.
If you are able to meet in person and both feel safe, then going for a walk around the neighborhood or a local hiking trail is a great opportunity to connect with your loved ones. Make sure you are following social distancing guidelines and wearing face masks.
However, if you are unable to meet up with your loved ones in person for whatever reason than video calling your family members is a great way to get a more personal connection than speaking over the phone. We realize many seniors have trouble operating video calling technology like Facetime or Skype, so our caregivers can help your loved ones use this technology easily and more efficiently through our Social Care program.
Enjoy Virtual or Socially Distanced Events
Although many of the classic Thanksgiving events have been cancelled this year, there are still events that you and your loved ones can enjoy while maintaining social distancing protocols.
Many musicians are opting to live-stream their concerts and museums are offering new virtual tours to keep up their attendance numbers. One of our personal favorite options at Visiting Angels Denver is attending the local drive-in movie theater with our loved ones to binge classic movies and eat junk food all night.
