5 Thanksgiving Dinner Conversation Starters with the Elderly

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

Thanksgiving is almost here -- and that means turkey, pie and painfully awkward conversations with your oldster relatives. Here are a few ideas to keep the conversation flowing.


1. "How 'bout that World War I?"
The elderly love talking about the past, even if sometimes they can't remember it.

2. "I bet you're really good at lawn bowling."
People love to talk about their hobbies, especially when the hobby is also pretty much their job.

3. "How's your hip?"
Hip health is hot with the older set.

4. "Can you believe the price of Efferdent?"
Or any other stereotypical senior citizen's product.

5. "Love your pantsuit! Is that polyester?"
Also a winner, "Is your hair a new tint of blue?"
