What Kind of Gifts Should I Bring For a Nursing Home Visit?

It can be hard to know what to bring for a loved one who lives in a nursing home when you visit them. They might seem like they already have everything they need, or they might not have a lot of space to store new items. Here are a few types of gifts your loved one is sure to appreciate on your next visit.

The Most Important Gift of All

The gift that your loved one will appreciate the most is the time you spend with them. Instead of visiting for an hour between errands, set aside a whole day for them. Find out what life is like for them living at their nursing home and ask questions about their past. If they’re up to it, and your budget allows for it, consider taking them to the movies, out to eat or shopping. Getting out and about to enjoy some different scenery is sure to brighten anyone’s day!
