Giving holiday gifts to the elderly that keep on giving. Cathy Isom tells us when it comes to gifts to the elderly this holiday season one thing that you could do is just provide them a small dish of candy or a small dish of fruit.

Something that they can offer to visitors when they come to visit them. Giving personal items to a home-bound resident is also a thoughtful gift. Such as soaps, lotions, talcum powders, and any other personal grooming items. To make things special maybe you would want to add a decorate tissue holder along with it. A nice new blanket or lap robe could be a good winter thing. Crossword puzzles and word search books could help residents pass the time and keep them sharp.
