TOP 5Holiday GIFTS for Elderly Loved Ones With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season it can be hard to come up with the perfect gift ideas for elderly loved ones.
Here are Our Top 5…
#1 Help Your Elderly Loved One Relive Their Childhood
Childhood memories are often some of our fondest. Look for a gift that takes your loved one back to their happiest moments as a child…
Games, historical books or a favorite childhood movie remastered are just a few gifts that can help someone relive their favorite childhood experiences.
#2 Help Your Loved One Relive Their Heyday
Like childhood memories, gifts that help an elderly loved one relive their prime are also a great choice.
I got my Dad who was a recreational pilot a picture book of airplane history. He couldn’t stop talking about his fantastic gift.
And nearly everyone at the assisted living residence heard about it too !
#3 Give A Life Experience Gifts don’t have to be physical things… Giving someone an experience they’ve never had is one of the most long lasting presents you can give and many will cherish the memory forever.
A short trip to a national park, a senior swimming class or a spa pamper package are all fantastic ideas. Don’t forget to choose an activity they’ve never done before.
#4 The Gift of Time
Often the most valuable thing we can give someone is the gift of our own time.
For example, you could give a voucher to a senior who would really appreciate some help around the house.
Or, if you’re good with technical things you could give a “fix it” voucher to a senior to call you when they need help with a computer, cell phone or TV.
#5 Give the Gift of Family History
Most people’s knowledge of their family history is limited. Take a look at the leading ancestry websites and test kits to determine one’s true family history.
It can be a real fun and eye opening experience for them and the whole family.
So there’s our 5 Simple Tips for Choosing the Perfect Gift for an elderly loved one!
