5 Elderly Gift Ideas This Season

| News

We at Right at Home, your leading local home care provider, would like to share some special gift ideas for your elderly loves ones. Whether you are buying for a partner, parent, or grandparent, these gift ideas are sure to spark joy this season.  


Jigsaw puzzles are an excellent way to avoid Australia’s summer heat. Sit comfortably inside with a 1000-piece puzzle these holidays and connect with the people you love. What’s more, puzzles provide elderly loved ones with cognitive stimulation – ever important as we age to maintain good cognitive health.  


A smartwatch, no matter the brand or price, is a great tool to introduce to your elderly family members. Smartwatches can track your heart rate, steps taken, and calories burned. You can set daily goals and track your progress over time using the mobile app. Another key feature of a smartwatch is its ability to provide you with notifications from your smartphone. You can receive alerts for incoming calls, messages, emails, and even social media notifications directly on your wrist. This allows you to stay connected to the digital world without having to carry a phone. 

Digital Photo Frame 

A digital picture or photo frame displays digital photos without the need for a computer or printer. Digital photo frames are generally designed to sit like a picture on your wall whereby you can be reminded of special moments with your loved ones all day every day. You can preload the digital picture frame with photos or videos, add captions, or leave them as is. This is an excellent and dynamic way to help your family feel connected throughout the year. 

Foreign Language Subscription  

There are literally hundreds of language learning apps and subscription models. Purchasing a subscription for your older relatives is one of the best ways to keep their minds active and learning something new. Foreign language study enhances listening skills and memory – both important for good cognitive health and confidence.  

Stretchy Dog Leash 

For those of you with pets, who is your go-to pet sitter? If you live close enough, it’s likely your parents or grandparents. And for our elderly parents or grandparents who still have their own animals, how is their physical strength and mobility?

No matter the scenario, walking a pet (large or small) requires a good lead and an able body. Shock-absorbing “bungee” leashes can transform how owners/sitters walk their animals. Instead of straining your arms and backs these types of leashes make walking easier and less physically taxing.
