Holiday Gift Ideas for Elderly Loved Ones from Right at Home Australia 

| News

It’s the holiday season and all of us here at Right at Home Australia would like to say happy holidays! 

While gift giving is central to many families’ festivities, and who doesn’t look forward to finding out what’s under the tree, companionship and socialisation play an equally important part.   

The 2020 and 2021 holiday seasons are different to what we’ve ever experienced before. Families are separated by border closures and lockdowns, and vaccine hesitation has meant some of us are limited in our ability to travel.  

The holidays are a perfect time to involve the elderly and those living with special care needs and disabilities in activities – no matter how small. Everyone, no matter their age or ability, needs a little socialisation and a lot of care. If you know someone who may need some extra attention this season, give them the gift of company.  

Australia’s major cities have all got something planned for the holiday season. Check out what’s going on near you and consider whether you can lend a helping hand to someone who lives alone, far away from their family, or who may not be able to get around easily due to a disability.

Here are some other gift ideas we've come up with this season:


Self care pamper packs or vouchers to a spa (great way to focus on self care)

  • Christmas or holiday themed cross stitch (great activity to keep the ones you love active)

  • Tablet device (helps you and your loved ones remain connected after the Holidays)


  • Puzzles (puzzles are a great activity for mental stimulation and keeping loved ones entertained)
  • Movie vouchers (great option to provide further socialisation for your loved ones)

    If you need help with providing socialisation and companion care for your loved one these holidays, we are here to help. Contact us about our companion care services today.  

Happy Holidays!
