What’s nice about this resource is that they list local programs. Search under populations at risk, seniors, and find–The Christmas Safety Package Program, Lambton County
This sounds like a much more useful gift than expensive candy (we have a lot of diabetics) or glitzy, store-bought but not very warm gloves.
A Christmas “gift package” for older adults containing items related to falls prevention in the older population. Each year a different theme is selected with corresponding gift safety and educational items as well as an “anchor” or container to hold the aforementioned items. For example, in 2000, the initial package focused on winter home safety and the anchor was a red pail with a bag of 5 pounds of sand (to apply to icy areas around the home). In 2001, the theme was “Footcare and Wear” with the anchor being a square plastic dishpan for foot soaking. In 2002, the theme selected is physical activity and the anchor is a tote bag.
