When an older adult calls a senior living community “home,” they benefit from a wide variety of amenities and activities. From an on-site beauty/barber shop to fitness classes and art workshops, these thriving communities have almost every need covered. It’s one reason loved ones often struggle to come up with a holiday gift.
This year the COVID-19 pandemic has made holiday shopping and gift giving more challenging. Many senior living communities are restricting visitors in an effort to keep staff and residents safe. That means families are gathering virtually instead of in person which can further complicate the season.
If you are looking for a few unique gift ideas for a parent, friend, or other senior member in your family, we have some suggestions you might find useful.

With all of that in mind, we have a few unique holiday gift ideas that might spark your imagination:
