One of the best gifts you can give to an elderly mom who is living in a nursing home or retirement centre is to take time to call, or visit, to remind them that you’re thinking of them this upcoming Mother’s Day. However, if you are looking for a physical gift to bring along on that visit, we have some nursing home gift ideas from our friends at Peter Pauper Press, Inc. A photo album makes a wonderful gift. Peter Pauper Press albums feature an attractive embossed cover, with a complementary interior design. 24 sleeves hold 48 photographs total. The photo size is 4 inches x 6 inches. The hardcover material helps protect photos. A magnetic closure keeps album secure. Start mom’s new album off with a few photos, and encourage other family members to send a photo each month to help fill it up. Space is limited in most nursing rooms, so why not brighten her day with this artsy Mom Mini Gallery Easel accent, which combining upbeat words of positivity, a vibrant design, and mini easel display! It is perfect for the end table by her bedside. For an aging parent- My Personal Health Record Keeper is the perfect gift. The sturdy hardcover book contains 123 pages where your mom can record important medical information. An elastic band attached to the back cover keeps her place or keeps the book closed. My daughter has a traumatic brain injury and this notebook helps to keep information about her blood type, family health history, doctors appointments, medical tests, medications and vaccines-all in one place. It is the perfect size to fit in her bag, so she can take it along with her to DR. appointments. It is important to remember the importance of preserving not only the stories of the past, but also the stories of the living. One of the best gifts to give mom is a gift for generations to come – that’s where Memory Books come into play. Guided questions and prompts will help your mom tell her grandchildren (and great-grandchildren) all about her childhood and teen years; her education, love, and marriage; work, community, religion, military service; parenthood and family life; and, of course, grand-parenthood! I marvel at the way great recipes are passed from generation to generation. Some of my favorite recipes were passed down from my mother. Now mom can preserve and organize all her treasured family recipes — past, present, and future — in an attractive recipe journal. The Journal includes recipe pages for Appetizers; Soups, Salads, & Sandwiches; Side Dishes; Main Courses; Desserts; Beverages; and More Recipes.The sections are neatly organized and each section contains an index. How about a box of envelopes, paper, pens and a book of stamps? Peter Pauper Press carries a large variety of Elegant Letter-Perfect Boxed Stationery that will add flair to her personal correspondence. Each box of designer stationery contains 30 sheets and 24 envelopes. Why not address a few envelopes for mom, to insure you receive a special letter. Have you considered giving mom an adult coloring book? Contrary to what you may think, coloring is not just for children. In fact, taking a crayon or colored pencil to paper triggers and stimulates the brain areas associated with motor skills, creativity, and the senses. Hand function and fine motor skills are often impaired following a stroke. Coloring books can help maintain these motor skills. Fine motor skills can often be affected following brain injury. My daughter has been using the adult Coloring Books from “Peter Pauper Press” as part of her traumatic brain injury rehabilitation. Each coloring book includes 31 full-page designs on heavyweight, acid-free paper. Pages are micro-perforated for ease of removal. Measures 9-1/2 inches wide by 9 inches high (24.13 cm wide by 22.86 cm high). There are five different designs available. So you coloured, now what? Marisa uses these lovely Joyful Designs Coloring Book to upcycle into lovely crafting ideas! See her post at Five Ways To Upcycle Colouring Books. The coloring pages once colored could also be used for scrap-booking crafts. If you haven’t tried coloring yourself, why not grab a couple of these books and a new set of crayons and head over to your favorite senior citizens home today. I’ll bet you’ll be surprised at the fun you’ll have. When I was looking for ways to keep my Mom entertained, and help improve her fine motor skills, following her stroke many years ago I turned to one of my child’s coloring books and a package of pencil crayons. I wish these adult coloring books were around then.

Spring is here and I’ve already begun Spring Cleaning my entire house. These free printable cleaning checklists from Cynthia Ewer, Author of Complete Idiot’s Guide to Getting Organized help me stay on track. My go to cleaner is Pine-Sol® Multi-Surface Cleaner. I have been using Pine-Sol since I first moved out of my parents home 29 years ago and never have been let down. Pine-Sol has long been known for its signature pine scent. Over the years new scents have come aboard. If the thought of scrubbing the house instantly puts you in a down mood, you can now turn to Pine-Sol Spring Blossom. Spring Blossom is a beautifully pungent floral smell that delivers the combination of Jasmine, Magnolia and Orange Blossom.The smell is fresh, light, and not overwhelmingly floral. Sol Spring Blossom not only cleans but also deodorizes. I like that I can use it on a variety of surfaces, so I don’t need to buy multiple cleaners for different rooms. Spring Blossom can be found in grocery and discount retailers Canada-wide. If flowers are not your scent of choice there are other options. To help you take on the task of spring-cleaning your home, Pine-Sol has offered some trade secrets to help you wipe out winter muck and open the floodgates of freshness. Seven Pine-Sol Trade Secrets for the Perfect Spring Scrub Tip #1: Get with the times We see that old, dried up Christmas tree shedding its last needles on your hardwood* floor. It’s time to let go of the holiday spirit and scrap the shrub already! A quick swipe of the multi-purpose cleaner will mop up any lingering sap and leave your floors sparkling. In fact, they’ll be so shiny you won’t need those outdoor twinkle lights anymore, either. (Yeah, we see those too.) Tip #2: Give your kitchen some love Winter weather calls for comfort food classics. You’ve probably been cooking up a storm of rich delights like bacon cheeseburgers, fried chicken and gooey grilled cheese sandwiches. Yum! But judging by the greasy build-up on your kitchen cabinets, you haven’t been running the stove vent regularly. Pine-Sol® Multi-Surface Cleaner can wipe away that dull, grimy build-up in a flash, and leave your cabinets looking clean. Tip #3: Bathe your bathroom You most likely clean your bathroom once a week — no? Just us? Ok. — but nooks and crannies often go overlooked in the weekly wipe down. Dunk a household cloth in a bucket of warm water with a splash of your new favourite cleaner, and wash down tiled walls for a squeaky clean finish with a lingering fresh scent. Get into those hard-to-reach (a.k.a. don’t want to reach) spots around the tub and toilet, too. Then clean out old beauty and grooming products, and replace with new items. You and your bathroom will be all the more beautiful for it. Tip #4: The devil is in the details Seriously, cleaning things like baseboards, walls and doorframes can be incredibly tedious. They seem to go on for days. But Pine-Sol® Multi-Surface Cleaner helps to remove stains in one swipe, and leaves behind a heavenly scent. Use a sponge mop to help you cover a larger surface area in one wipe and get to those out-of-reach areas. Before long, you’ll be saying sayonara to devilish dirt and grime. Tip #5: Deal with your garage Yeah, we know, the garage is scary. It’s dark and damp, and there’s a stack of boxes piled up in the corner with labels like “Summer ’85” that you know hold nightmares of your teen years. But fear not, Pine-Sol® Multi-Surface Cleaner can treat those stains so that everything looks sane again. It can also clean and disinfect garbage and recycling bins in a jiffy. Sadly, the only things Pine-Sol® can’t wipe clean are your high school nightmares. Tip #6: Clean the windows to your soul Ok, so maybe they’re not the windows to your soul, but the soul of your home. Dilute a few drops of fresh Spring Blossom in a bucket of warm water, use a sponge to wipe dirt and debris from the window sills and panes. Then watch your house’s soul sparkle and yours sing. Tip #7: No one is blind to the dirt on your blinds The wooden blinds in your home may not seem to attract much dirt, but look closely and you’ll see specks of muck, caked-on dust and…do we see…flecks of glitter glue from an overzealous Valentine’s Day display? A nearly dry sponge with a couple of drops of all-purpose cleaner will wipe away the dirt, dust and glitter so that your blinds will look blindingly clean. *Use as directed, Do not use on wood that is unfinished, unsealed unpainted. Waxed, oiled or worn. Have you started spring cleaning? About Pine-Sol®: Pine-Sol® Multi-Surface Cleaners help you keep your entire house clean with a variety of fresh scents. This multi-surface cleaner cuts through the toughest stains, grease and grime. Pine-Sol® products are available nationally at Grocery, Discount, Drug, Dollar & Club retailers. pinesol.ca Copyright © 2017 Today's Woman. This Feed is for personal non-commercial use only.
