The perfect gift

What do you get for someone who already has everything?

I think most of us understand that dilemma quite well. I have an 89 year old grandma who’s a millionaire, but she’s also got Alzheimer’s disease. For the past several years I’ve always sent a nice floral arrangement since we’ve not been able to spend Christmas at home. However, this year we’re going to be home for the holidays and I’m in a quandary over her Christmas gift. She literally has everything she could ever want or need.

So, do I still send flowers in advance? Or should I get her something else? What’s a great gift idea for an 89 year old Alzheimer’s patient?
