Hi Fiona, thank you for you input. Giving gifts on admission depends on the facility's management. I think it is a great idea. However I have not experienced it, the places I worked for had usually a 'get-together' to introduce the new resident to a few people. Nice china cups, petit fours, a choice of teas, and cakes. Of course had we added a small gift it would have been even better.

Hi Fiona,
I arrange a ;'Welcome pack' for all new residents: a plastic small basket with shampoo,conditioner, a nice plastic cup, hand cream, a bar of soap, a nail set and a welcome card (made by a resident) -all wrapped. In the same time , fresh flowers in a vase in the room before arrival.
Best wishes.
