Best and Worst Gifts for Seniors

November 29th, 2018 The Loved Ones Desk Uncategorized

The holiday season has arrived, so you’re probably starting to search for the perfect presents for the Loved Ones in your life. While it may be a tad easier to find gifts for your parents and siblings, you may have a harder time thinking of good ideas for Grandma and Grandpa.

Before you go crazy racking your brain for ideas, let us help! These are some of the best and worst gift ideas for seniors.

Best Gift for Seniors

Orthopedic Shoes

Walking around can get a bit difficult for seniors, so a nice pair of orthopedic shoes can help support their joints and make them feel much more comfortable. You can either find out their size and get them a pair beforehand or take them to the store and make a day of it.

A Digital Photo Frame

We all know how much grandparents love looking at photos of their grandchildren, so why not get them a digital photo frame that can display hundreds of those pictures at a time? You can even pre-load it with photos so it’s all ready to go.

Worst Gifts for Seniors

Alcohol

It may seem easy to make a quick stop at the liquor and pick up your grandpa’s favorite whiskey, but that’s not a good idea. Seniors can’t process alcohol the same way younger people can so they shouldn’t have too much of it.

Exercise DVDs

While your seniors should definitely be getting enough regular exercise, most exercise DVDs are pretty intense so they can easily strain themselves if they try keeping up with those videos. Instead, get them low-impact exercise equipment.

When it comes to keeping your senior relatives happy and healthy, you can trust the professional caregivers at Loved Ones. With our “never alone” promise, you can rest assured that your loved ones will receive the best care possible.
