The holiday season is here, and now is the perfect time to get your senior loved one a gift he or she will love. Henderson in-home senior care professionals suggest a few senior-friendly items to add to your Christmas shopping list this year.
1. Technological Devices
Consider buying your loved one a new computer, Smartphone apps, an iPad, or a Smart TV to help him or her stay up to date with the latest technology while boosting his or her brain activity. Using technology can help prevent memory loss and make it easier for your loved one to stay connected with family and friends.
2. Pet Accessories and Gifts
Pets often play a significant role in the lives of seniors, providing companionship and opportunities for physical activity. This Christmas, your loved one might appreciate a gift for his or her furry friend, including squeaky toys, chew toys, or treats. Pet food is also a good gift that can actually save your loved one some money.
3. Donation to a Cause
If your loved one is living with a serious illness or disease or has lost someone who had a specific health condition, consider making a donation on his or her behalf to a cause related to that specific condition. Knowing you have sent in a donation for research, a cure, or to help out other seniors with the illness is a great gift to give your loved one this Christmas. This gift can boost your loved one’s mood, and it also helps make scientific advancements.
4. An All-Inclusive Vacation
Send your loved one on a cruise or trip to one of the many vacation destinations around the world. Plan a vacation to a warm destination so he or she can get away from cold weather, and choose a place your loved one has always wanted to go. A vacation is a great way to show your loved one that he or she is truly appreciated.
5. Gift Certificates
When you purchase a gift certificate for your loved one, be sure to choose one of his or her favorite restaurants or retail stores. You might also want to get a gift card to the movies or tickets to his or her favorite sporting event. Your loved one will look forward to getting out of the house and cashing in the gift certificates, which reduces the risk of isolation, depression, and stress.
