Valentine’s Day is a wonderful time to show your senior parent how much you love them. Many seniors are feeling those winter blues by the time February comes along and would love to get a gift to cheer them up. But buying gifts for a senior parent can be difficult, especially if you’re not living close at the moment so you’re not really sure what they need. If you’re looking for fun, helpful, and creative gifts that your senior parent will love try giving your senior parent one of these thoughtful Valentine’s Day gifts:
In-home care is a thoughtful and practical gift for senior parents. Whether you live nearby but work or other have responsibilities and can’t be there for your senior parent as much as you’d like or you live far away giving your senior parent in-home care will help them stay safe and happy in their home. With in-home care seniors get companionship, help with household chores and tasks, help running errands or doing shopping, and help with doctor’s appointments and managing their medication. They also get social interaction which is vitally important for their good physical and mental health. Talk to a care agency near your senior parent today about in-home care.
Grocery delivery is a fantastic gift for seniors. Often seniors could benefit from grocery delivery but they may think it’s out of their budget. But these days grocery delivery is very affordable and fast. If your senior parent has in-home care the care provider can help your senior parent shop on their phone or on a tablet. Then the groceries will be delivered right to the door and the home care provider can help put them away. Especially during the winter when it’s hard for seniors to get grocery delivery is a practical gift your senior parent will love.
A Year Of Streaming
Does your senior parent love Netflix? Or do they watch another streaming service frequently or use a subscription streaming TV service? Pay for a year’s worth of the service as a Valentine’s Day gift and your senior loved one will be thrilled. You’re giving them an entire year of entertainment that they can enjoy at home and that is a priceless gift. Paying for a year of cable or internet service is another great option if your senior parents have cable TV.
A visit is a gift that your senior parent will treasure, so if you can surprise them with a visit they would love that. If a visit just isn’t possible because you live so far away you can video chat with your senior parent. An in-home care giver can help your senior loved one connect on video so that you can see and talk to each other. Even though video chats aren’t as good as real visits they can be a fantastic way to spend time with your senior parent when circumstances make it impossible to get together in real life.
