7 Gift Ideas for Loved Ones in Memory Care

December 12, 2023

Finding the perfect gift for a loved one can be difficult especially if your loved one is diagnosed with dementia. You don’t have to spend a fortune to get a gift that can not only help your loved one but bring them joy. Check out our top 7 gift suggestions for your loved ones in memory care.

1- Memory Picture Phone

This ten-button phone allows your loved one to contact you quickly by touching a button with your photo. Brought to you by the Alzheimer’s Store, this phone enables your loved one to connect with you with the touch of a button. 

2- Fidget Blanket

Fidget blankets can provide relief for an anxious mind, and keep your senior loved one busy. You can make your own, or find one online – like this one we found on Amazon.  We like it because when you are done fidgeting, it can roll up and easily be stored. 

3- Water Color Reusable Painting Kit

These simple, mess-free watercolor kits, are great for your loved one in memory care. They are reusable and provide calming relief and can also help with anxious minds and wandering feet. 

4- Weighted Blanket

Weighted blankets are great for reducing anxiety for anyone, but can be very useful to help dementia patients fall asleep. Before purchasing a weighted blanket for your loved one be sure to talk to his or her doctor to be sure it is safe. Things like respiratory issues or weakness may not make it a good fit. Look for lighter ones, like this one are usually a good fit. 

5- Simple Big Button Remote

A big button remote is essential for any senior, but this one features 5 favorite channel buttons, and volume buttons as well. The remotes simply pair with any TV and can be found on the Alzheimer’s Store site here. 

6- Reminder Assistant/ Voice Clock

Set reminders easily, and see the time with this Reminder Assistant/ Voice Clock. Reminders and knowing the time can help keep your loved one on top of things, and hopefully, help to keep them independent longer. 

7- One Button Radio

Does your loved one listen to the same radio station daily? Then we have a gift recommendation for you! Check out this one-button radio, it can help your loved one to be able to turn it on and off on their own. 

We hope you and your family have a great holiday season! We hope you have the time to spend it with the people you love. And as always, if you or your senior loved one needs help finding resources, care, or a senior living community, we are here for you!
