This is the time of year
when many people are scratching their heads trying to think of present ideas
for older relatives and friends. This is especially difficult if the older
person is living in a care home.
Here are some ideas that we at Able
Community Care hope will help:
A box of mixed cards
(birthday, new home, birth congratulations, get well, etc) and a book of
A subscription to a
magazine for a year.
A card inviting the person
out to lunch on a specific day in the coming year.
A pack of
pretty/interesting wrapping paper for all occasions.
A non-slip lap tray for
those cups of tea and snacks while watching television.
A microwaveable wheat bag,
perhaps with lavender, to soothe aching joints.
A necklace with a magnetic
CD’s of their favourite
era or audio books with a CD player.
A postal, small cake
delivery or a bunch of flowers once a month.
A newspaper of the year
they were born.
Look for large print books
in their favourite theme format.
