Ask the people who spend the most time with your older loved ones what Grandma or Grandpa could really use. Often people who live far away from their older relatives do not see the opportunities to enable easier everyday living with practical gifts for senior citizens.
Paoli, PA (PRWEB) November 28, 2005
Each year it seems to get more difficult to find a gift for Grandma and Grandpa that they will truly appreciate. Patricia Curry, baby boomer entrepreneur and founder of Wellhaven Gifts for Seniors, offers practical advice on selecting gifts for the elderly. "Ask the people who spend the most time with your older loved ones what Grandma or Grandpa could really use. Often people who live far away from their older relatives do not see the opportunities to enable easier everyday living with practical gifts for senior citizens."
For example, if people who enjoy reading have vision impairments, they may no longer be able to see even large print. A copy of the latest best seller may not be practical this year even if it was a gift they enjoyed in past years. However, an audio book or a CD collection of either old-time radio shows or music may provide hours of entertainment.
To make it easy to bring comfort and joy to your older loved ones, the staff at Wellhaven Gifts for Seniors have compiled a list of gift ideas for Grandma and Grandpa.
Gifts of Comfort
Stay warm and cozy on a cold day with a cotton sofa throw. Choose from styles for men and women including members of the local red hat chapter.
Have a meal or use your notebook computer on a beautifully designed portable lap desk while relaxing in the comfort of your favorite chair or lounging on the patio.
Provide pain relief to those suffering from arthritis with the arthritis hand mitt. Simply microwave the specially designed mitt for warm, soothing therapy that eases the pain of stiff joints.
Gifts of Joy
Share hours of fun with family and friends with large print playing cards in several colorful designs for men and women. Card shufflers and card holders make it easier for those with difficulty holding cards to play along with everyone else.
Brighten a winter’s day with a phone call from the grandchildren. For seniors with hearing impairments, select an amplified telephone with features that meet the current and expected future needs. An amplified phone with volume boost and big numbers makes a practical group gift from the whole family.
Express your love for your grandparents or older parents with a poem of appreciation, or a gourmet coffee mug gift set with a loving sentiment sure to bring joy to their hearts.
Of course, the best gift of comfort and joy is a personal visit. If you do not have the opportunity to visit with your older loved ones this holiday season, consider volunteering at your local hospital or assisted living facility. If your loved one resides in a nursing home, the staff may be able to suggest an appropriate gift.
