Designing A Care Package

Mar 15

A care package is an amalgamation of services that are put together to meet a person’s needs after they’ve received a care needs assessment from a social care professional. It’s a way to help elderly people receive the care and support they need in the face of challenges such as declining functional status or cognitive impairment.

It’s always great to show your loved ones how much you care for them and a thoughtfully curated care package is one of the best ways to do that. Care Packages for seniors are often filled with activities, gifts, and treats that will make them feel pampered, happy, and loved.

When designing a care package, it’s important to consider the person’s personality, interests, and lifestyle. For example, if they enjoy crafting or scrapbooking, consider including some art supplies. Or, if they’re an avid reader, you can include some new books or a favorite series. If they love to puzzle or play games, include some crossword and sudoku books, a few jigsaw puzzles, or cards and board games. You can also include some stationery items like stamps, colored pens, and notepads to allow them to write back to you easily.

For a more comforting care package, include some cozy clothing and accessories to give your loved ones the feeling of being at home. A robe or pair of slippers, warm blankets, and cozy pajamas are a great way to make them feel comfortable and safe. Adding some stationery with fun pens and envelopes is a nice touch, too. Finally, a framed photo of them and their family will be a joy to look at and remember who sent the package.

You can also add in some self-care and wellness items to help your senior loved one stay healthy. A travel-sized toothbrush, toothpaste, a hairbrush, a manicure kit, and some nail polish will give them the tools they need to keep their hands and teeth clean. Including a scented body wash or lotion can be a nice addition as well and will give them a little extra pampering.

The most important part of any care package is that it contains a heartfelt letter with the message that you’re thinking about them and that you’re sending them lots of love. Even if you’re not able to visit your elderly loved one as often as you’d like, sending them a care package is a great way to let them know that they’re always in your heart. You can also get them a subscription box that will send them a gift every month. Some are designed especially for seniors, and others follow a theme such as beauty or tea. These can be a fun, inexpensive option to consider for your elderly friend or relative.
