Useful Gifts For Loved Ones in Assisted Living

Useful Gifts For Loved Ones in Assisted Living

Gifts are incredibly important for someone living in a nursing home for a wide range of different reasons. Not only do they help make sure your loved one always knows how appreciated they are, but they can often inject a sense of fun and excitement as this person moves to the next important stage of their life. If you want to make sure you’re giving a useful gift to someone in a care facility, there are a few key things you’ll want to keep in mind. 

Embrace the Past and the Future at the Same Time

Another great gift for loved ones in assisted living facilities can be a unique blend of the past and the future. Consider getting your loved one an MP3 player filled with all of their favorite classic albums, or a tablet filled with digital copies of all of their favorite books and movies. Modern day mobile devices are much more accessible and easy to use than a full computer, as your loved one can control everything with a touch of the finger as opposed to a mouse. They’ll love the ease-of-use and the content at the same time.


When you’re living in a care home, keeping your days busy is important. Magazine or newspaper subscriptions can be a great way to do exactly that, giving your loved one new content to look forward to every day when they wake up in the morning.

Items to Please the Grandkids

File this one under the “two birds, one stone” category. Consider purchasing your loved one a variety of activity books or children’s movies for their new home. This way they’ll always have something fun to engage in whenever the grandkids come visit, which will also double as a way to make sure those same grandkids keep coming back for more.
