My job is very rewarding and often times I think of clients and what I could suggest to enhance their life and happiness. On a recent trip to Kansas City with a few of our team members, I happened to pick up and read a catalog that was on the plane. It hit me when I saw this product, what gifts for nursing home residents are appropriate?
I browsed the description: This compact device, no bigger than a deck of cards, comes loaded with the 100 greatest literary works of all time: books like Gulliver’s Travels, Tom Sawyer, and Little Women. I thought this is the perfect gift for nursing home residents. Often times, their sight may not be what it used to be, and so reading can be sometimes difficult. The use of headphones will minimize disturbing a roommate.
Expert narrators bring the full, unabridged versions of these classics to life. And acoustic engineers digitally enhance every recording… so one can enjoy the highest sound quality every time they listen to your Library of Classics.
You can find this perfect gift for nursing home residents at www.enjoytheclassics.com. If you would like to purchase more than one, there is a “Buy Two and Save” offer for $169.99 at www.skymall.com. If you are knowledgeable about the use of MP3 players and audio files and know your loved one’s taste in books, you can download customized reading selections of audio books. Many e-books are now offered for free by publishers and also can be “borrowed” from the library.
Happy shopping! I would love to hear gift ideas that you have to share. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be happy to share during the upcoming holidays.
