Send Flowers And Put The Razzmatazz Back Into The Nursing Home

Strike up some Glenn Miller on the gramophone. Grandparents’ Day is just around the corner. As it falls on the first Sunday after Labor Day every year, Grandparents Day is September 7, 2008. Many people have parents and grandparents in nursing homes and want to celebrate this special occasion with their loved ones but are unable to visit. When you want to send a gift to let your loved one know that you’re thinking of them, send flowers that symbolize just how special that person is to you.

Some people enjoy regular visits to their family and friends in nursing homes. However, special occasions call for special gifts but it’s not always possible to break away from the office to shop for a unique gift. Nab two birds with one stone by having flowers delivered to your special person before your scheduled visit or possibly even during your visit. You’ll get to watch their face light up after receiving a beautiful flower arrangement and share in their special day.

There are a few things that everyone needs to know when sending flowers to friends or loved ones in a nursing home. As with all deliveries, your local florist will need accurate information including the following:

  • Recipient’s Name
  • Name of the Nursing Home
  • Address of the Nursing Home
  • Phone Number of the Nursing Home and/or Recipient
  • (Possibly) Recipient’s Room Number

These little trinkets help make sure that the florist is able to deliver your gift on time and without any hassle. Due to recently enacted privacy laws, it is not always possible for the recipient’s room number and other personal information to be given over the phone. Often delivery personnel are asked to simply leave the package at the front desk. To avoid any delays or confusion, call the nursing home and obtain this information as well as delivery protocol before contacting a local florist.
