Lonely elders long to spend some time with their family members. Even if it’s just a chat on the phone or a Sunday afternoon visit. Unfortunately though, if the family lives in another city, it is hard to make that wish come true.

I can understand this because my grandmother felt this way for 15 years after my grandfather passed.

That’s why I came up with a few gift ideas that I think will cheer up any lonely elder. Many of these gifts will help them pass the time, communicate with loved ones, or make them feel safer in general.

Selecting a gift for lonely elders is not a daunting task.

You should understand what would make them happy to counter their loneliness. As for me, I like the idea of the large print puzzle books and subscription boxes. Gifts like this will help them stay busy and keep their minds sharp. Plus, knowing something else is coming later will give them something to look forward to!
