How to Make a Care Package for the Elderly

Making a care package for an elderly friend or relative is probably one of the nicest things you can do for them, other than being there for them. This can be something that you ship to them if you are not around to give it to them or you can hand deliver to them yourself if you do live in the area. You can include a variety of different things in these baskets from items that will stimulate their mind that will help the mind to stay young, to things they enjoy eating or things that they can use for personal use. Whatever it might be, it's a thoughtful and loving gift to give.

When you first decide on making this package make sure to get items that you know your friend or relative is going to be able to use. For instance, include some large print books for them to read or if they have special diet needs make sure to add some of those special foods in your basket or include a gift card. Fresh fruit is also a nice addition that all seniors will enjoy receiving.

You can also consider making them a small lap blanket if you crochet or just buy one, or maybe make them a nice shawl or even an afghan they can snuggle with on the couch, one that can be nicely draped over furniture that matches the color scheme of their home in which they live.

You can include things like jigsaw puzzles, some cards, books, stationary and greeting cards with pens. You might even include some stamps as well to go along with the stationary. Crossword puzzles and other puzzle books with large print might also be nice additions to your care package.

Once you have all of the items that you are considering on including in your package you then need to figure out what you want to put them in. It could be a nice tray they can use over, a nice wicker basket or even a gift bag. If you are shipping it, make sure that you protect the items by stuffing shredded newspaper or shipping popcorn in with them.

If you are putting the items in a nice basket, you might want to get some clear, colored cellophane wrap and wrap the entire care package in it and then attach a nice large bow on it to add a nice finishing touch to it.

Note: If you like, you can also take decorative wrap and wrap each individual item in the package as well so that it adds a little bit more of an element of surprise when they receive the care package. It adds a little more fun to the whole idea of receiving such a wonderful and cheerful gift.
