Gift Card to Their Favorite Restaurant
If your loved one isn’t a fan of physical gifts, consider getting them a gift card for their favorite restaurants. Not only does a gift card allow them to get a free meal, but it also means your loved ones can enjoy a night out of the house. If they don’t have someone to enjoy a meal with, you can offer to join them and make a day out of it. Before or after the restaurant, the two of you can see a movie, visit a museum, or go shopping. Sometimes, just spending time with a loved one is the greatest gift you can give.
At-home caregiving services from Visiting Angels
If the senior in your life has difficulties caring for themselves at home, consider helping them pay for an at-home caregiver from Visiting Angels. Visiting Angels’ professional caregivers can help with non-medical tasks like light housekeeping, meal preparations, medication reminders, mobility assistance, and transportation. Our Atlanta East office works with seniors in Atlanta, Buckhead, Decatur, Vinings, and the surrounding communities.
