Your Nursing Home Holiday Recipe

Abbyshire Place Skilled Nursing & Rehab Center

Holidays can be especially hard on the elderly in nursing homes. We here at Abbyshire welcome family’s to come and bring their relatives their favorite food from the holiday. This can make your loved one feel as though he or she gets to take part in some of the holiday traditions. Residents love getting their favorite homemade cookies or a fruitcake made from their recipe. The food will remind your loved one’s of a special memory. It will also remind them that you are thinking of him or her. Do not forget to check with the nursing or dietary staff to make sure that the food meets any dietary restrictions,  or any medications, has certain health conditions, or is unable to eat certain foods for other reasons.
