We repainted our old room before we moved my dad in. We bought a chair, end table, lamp, and the long dresser for his new room at the thrift stores for $70. I bough him new bedding for about $150 from Wal-Mart. He doesn't use the red and gray comforter I bough but prefers the Ohio State fleece blanket. He already had the bed and tall dresser.
In January I put together a wall photo collage for my dad. He had many frames on his dressers in his room and now he is down to 3. He has Alzheimer's and I want him to see his memories without taking up all his flat space. I'm purged the extra picture frames.
I bought the picture frame in early January and put pictures in it of his 3 children and their families. I plan to do a second one with the same style of frame of his 3 stepchildren and their families but I am having trouble finding a second one. I am kicking myself now for not buying both at the same time. I bought him a photo Album and put all his pictures that he keeps in his tall dressers top drawer.
