"Oops!" (I'm certain his son wondered what goof ball woman gave his father that gift! ) I felt terrible.
- If you bring something to eat, make sure to find out if they can chew, swallow and enjoy it.
- If your gift is something for them to wear, make sure it's wash and wear and can be put on with ease.. Don't give them anything that’s too difficult to put over their head! Something with a large V-neck or an easy snap or button down is better.
Socks that are soft and easy to put on.
- I'm certain you love grandma but don't give a turtle neck sweater to a woman who only gets her hair done once a week at the facility's beauty parlor.
- Notice the size of the small bathroom cabinets and drawers that are available. Don’t bring a lifetime size (or let’s just say the rest of their lifetime) bottle of lotion or bubble bath. I’ve seen visitors with loving intentions give huge gallon jugs of lotion they must have bought at Sam’s or Costco. Bring something that fits in their drawer for goodness sake!
"It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes, or bags.
I appreciate the followers of this blog so much and how much you love my mother Nancy Wright and /or how much you love and care for the elderly folks in your family. Thanks for your support and understanding! Love, Ramona Ann Thompson
