Time is what he will appreciate most. Things are no longer important. Mom loved ice cream cakes so on her birthday I would bring an ice cream birthday cake, balloons with Happy Birthday on them, and spend the afternoon enjoying her company. It is being remembered that they appreciate I do hope you both enjoy his birthday celebration

Love, deb

Totally agree with above. Son organised special time for my husband to see his 13 month granddaughter who he adored. Disaster. Only thing that interested my husband was lunch!

Time with them is the most appreciated but a throw blanket with pictures on it seems to be a good gift. I bought one for my husband and it is the best thing I could have gotten him. You can upload pictures and create a collage that he could look at. I put pictures of our home, pets, daughters, me, himself, his siblings, and parents on it. He looks at it every night when he goes to sleep. He doesn't know who everyone is but, he knows they are familiar and he should know who they are. Everyone in the nursing home loves it.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Dad was admitted to hospital with a bowel blockage, so cake is out of the question for now.

Sorry to hear he has a bowel blockage and hope he responds well to treatment. You can still just spend time with him. That is the best thing to do My thoughts and prayers are with you both.

Love, deb
