What do you buy for the person that has everything? Many of us find ourselves asking that question this time of year. Here at River Pointe, we think one of the best gifts you can give your loved one this holiday season is the gift of your time. Popping by for a surprise visit to join them for a game of bingo, or a delicious lunch in our Red River Dining Room, is a great way to show how much you care.
Everyday items also make great gifts. Things like shampoo, lotion, chapstick, or even socks, mean one less thing to go out in the cold for, or remember to buy. A gift card to our new full service salon and boutique, operated by Stacey Ericson, is another great opportunity for a gift that is both thoughtful and useful. Give her a call at 701-552-1872 to ask about gift cards. (She does manicures too!)
For those with more advanced stages of dementia, one resident’s family member has discovered the
benefits of Hasbro’s Joy For All Companion Pets. These life-like companions offer comfort and bring joy at a time in life when a person can feel so lost. Their website can be found here: http://joyforall.hasbro.com/en-us
Family pictures or scrapbooks are other great gifts that provide happy memories to your loved one. These can be as elaborate as a photo book made through a website like Shutterfly or Kodak, or simply a four by six photograph in a nice picture frame.
We wish you all a wonderful Holiday Season, and look forward to the great turnout we are planning for at our annual Christmas Dinner!
