Our Nursing Home Boutique was established to provide “a day at the mall” for residents of nursing homes in Needham.
On each of four Tuesdays, Council volunteers visit one of the nursing homes (Briarwood, Avery, Wingate and North Hill) to set up a “Boutique” on tables in the Activity Room.
Some of the merchandise available each week includes:
- Jewelry (necklaces, bracelets, earrings, etc.),
- Stationery (note pads, greeting cards, pens, note paper, etc.),
- Toiletries (toothpaste, powder, tissues, hand lotion, lipsticks, etc.),
- Clothing (slacks, cardigan sweaters, sweat suits, scarves) and
- Stuffed Animals
- …and, more
These much welcomed visits provide nursing home residents with an opportunity to shop for their own needs and also gifts for family and friends.
Donations of the above items are greatly appreciated.
