Residents at Haven Health of Douglas enjoyed a Thanksgiving feast with their families on Wednesday, Nov. 27.

This year, the nursing home hosted approximately 200 people, which included the 53 residents residing at Haven. A meal, made entirely by staff, consisted of traditional holiday dishes that were sure to remind the residents of home.

The annual event is a time for residents to come together with their loved ones to enjoy the holiday. Always held at least one day early, coordination of the Thanksgiving dinner caters to the convenience of the resident-families.

Keisha Hernandez and her children, Jordyn and Andre, came down from Bisbee to visit Josefina Huerena, Keisha’s grandmother and Jordyn and Andre’s great grandmother.

“This is a very special day for all of us because we get to spend time with her, especially on holidays such as this when we don’t get to have her at home,” Keisha said. “She’s been a resident here three years. This is our second Thanksgiving with her here.”

Keisha said her grandmother, who doesn’t speak, is well taken care of at Haven and she and her family, are extremely appreciative of the staff for all that they do for not only her, but also the other residents.

Adam Brake, Haven’s Executive Director, said this is all made possible thanks to the incredible effort put forth by his staff.

“We have a really great activities team that was able to plan all this and put it all together,” he said, “At the end of the day, what it’s all about is giving it that homelike environment and making sure that people who have families can come here and enjoy some quality time with their loved ones. And for those residents who may not have families that can visit as often as we’d like, we also want them to feel the love and joy, this holiday season.”

This was Brake’s second Thanksgiving at Haven. He says he has a great team that put their heart and souls into providing quality care.

“It’s not a one-man show,” he said. “We have 74 employees here. All the credit goes to them, the patients, and the family members who support us.”
