Senior Assisted Living Gifts and Gift Baskets
The perfect gift for a senior citizen is sometimes difficult especially if they have special dietary or medical needs. Individuals in long-term care facilities generally do not need a lot more than the everyday necessities to keep them comfortable.
The Keep it simple rules applies here since many seniors basic needs are taken care of. Also remember that in many instances their rooms and lockers remain unlocked, so you will want something that isn’t of high valuable. A large number of times it may get broken or misplaced. I know of one instance where the senior had Alzheimer and could not remember where her clothes and personal items were and had started finding what she needed in other’s lockers/drawers.
It’s such a nice gesture to bring homemade goodies, but remember in some places this may not be allowed. So ask first especially if they are on a special diet.
