Mar 5, 2018 2 min

Mother’s Day is Sunday 11th March this year so just around the corner! We know that you’ll want to spoil your mum or grandma but might not know where to start, especially if they are elderly or need that extra bit of care and attention.

Remember, the thought does count, but don’t bore her with the same presents you get every year. You don’t have to break the bank to get something that will stand out. Our suggestions start from as little as £3.25 and we also have some discount codes to help you out.

As a number of our clients here at HomeTouch have a form of dementia we have included a few of our favourite “dementia friendly” gifts that would go down well.

As well as gifts make sure you spoil her by doing things like having her put her feet up while you cook her dinner or playing her favourite music, she’ll really appreciate it!
