Imagine being a senior citizen and having to move to a new place where you may not know anyone. It would be so scary! These ideas for welcome gifts for senior living are terrific ways to acclimate them to their new environment. These gifts will hopefully give them some peace at their new life and get them excited about meeting new people. I always remember going to a local senior center when I was a child. I loved how they did fun things like play bingo and look at the fish tanks. I think the feeling of the community stands out tremendously. Have a look at these unique gifts.
