Social isolation is a serious health threat. It doesn’t matter if the person is isolated due to mobility issues, a lack of social relationships in their area, or from COVID-19 restrictions. The fact remains that being home alone day after day is hard on the soul. This holiday season, consider sending gifts for seniors in isolation that help make things a little easier while still being cheerful and fun.
When selecting a gift for seniors, subscription boxes are the gift that keeps on giving. Arriving monthly for anywhere from three to twelve months, subscription boxes can be a warm reminder of your love long after the holidays are over. These days, there’s a subscription box for seniors for any hobby, personality, and budget.

We call the people who lived through it “The Greatest Generation” for good reason.
