Your Top Senior Living Place in Dunwoody, GA And All Of The State Talks about Holiday Gift Ideas
Christmas is around the corner and many family members have reached out to us for gift ideas for their elderly loved ones who have been staying at our facility. That is why our senior living communities in Dunwoody, GA, Grayson, GA and Acworth, GA have put together a list of great gift ideas for your loved one. Much as gifting can be personal and everyone’s interests are different, our list has something for everyone.
The Perfect Gift for Your Loved One in Senior Living
Pictures, Lots of Pictures!
There is nothing more precious than photos and family keepsakes. Whether your senior loved one is a proud parent/grandparent who would like something to share with their friends or an Alzheimer’s patient, a photo book packed with memories can carry so much meaning to them. There are many services nowadays that allow you to create your photo book online and they will ship it to your home. Or better yet, you can spend some quality time with your loved one and create a scrapbook together. After all, time is the most valuable gift that you give them.
Health and Fitness Items
At our senior living communities, your loved ones’ health and fitness are among our top priorities. Our wellness services and life enrichment programs are specifically designed to help your aging relative maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. If your loved one enjoys doing some low impact exercises in their room, consider gifting the fitness items below:
- Yoga mat
- Stainless steel
- Wrist weight
- Seated whole body pedaler
Books and e-readers
Not only should your senior loved ones keep their bodies active but they should also keep their minds sharp. If they enjoy expanding their horizon, give them books on topics like technology and innovation. If there are new hobbies that they want to pick up during the time at the senior living facility, such as gardening or crafting, buy them books on these topics. If you decide to give your loved one an e-reader as a Christmas present, make sure to spend some time explaining how it works and read a few book pages with them on the new device. They are most definitely going to enjoy that!
Personal Care Items
Most senior living centers will provide your loved one with the amenities that they need during their stay at the facility. However, it would be much more meaningful and personal when you gift them care items that they love. Maybe it is the lavender conditioner that your mom has always liked. Maybe it is the sturdy razor about which your dad has always been particular. Only you will know exactly what they personally love.
This is probably one of the best presents that you can give to your loved ones. If you can arrange some time to take your elderly loved one on a family trip, their heart will be so full since they will get to spend time with family members that they adore. Plan in advance what you will need to bring on the trip and reach out to your loved one’s doctor to see if there are certain traveling restrictions that you need to know. If you do not have time for a long trip, you can bring the celebration to the facility instead. Presents, some good food, and your company – those things would make for the most delightful gift that your loved one can ask for.
