Link of the Day – Holiday Gifts For People With Alzheimer’s Disease

A recent issue of the newsletter of the Silverado Senior Living facility in Sugar Land, Texas contained an interesting article about gifts to patients with Alzheimer’ disease or dementia. Here are excerpts:

What kind of gift do you give someone with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease? There are more than 19 million family members in the United States, each asking themselves that very question this holiday season. Holiday shopping for people suffering with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia is not an impossible task. Here are some gift ideas that may help you to spread the cheer this holiday season.

Everyone wants to feel warm and loved. How about these gifts of warmth and comfort?

  • Soft micro fleece blanket
  • Hand made quilt
  • Warm shawl or scarf
  • Warm-up suit with zipper and pockets

What did your loved one like to do? Try these gifts of fun and adventure:

  • Outing to a garden center
  • Fishing trip
  • Movie and lunch

Everyone loves to feel pampered. How about a gift certificate for a beauty shop visit, manicure, and/or pedicure? How about a massage to relieve anxiety?

Personalized and inspirational gifts are always appropriate. Try a coffee mug with the grandkids pictures imprinted on it or a monogrammed blanket. Often times, those suffering from Alzheimer’s or dementia can be calmed and redirected with soothing music. Why not give an inspirational CD or book?

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
