Some of my favorite memories as a kid are with my Grandmother!! She was the person in my life who would drop anything to be their for my siblings & I. All we had to do is ask and Grandma would be there to the rescue.
Both my Grandmother & Grandfather were Ivy League graduates, so they didn't get started with the whole family thing until later on in life, which makes my Grandmother pretty old regardless of her young soul. Most people my age have grandparents in their 70's, my grandmother is well into her 90's.
Keeping their promise, my mom & her 5 brothers & sisters are doing everything they can to keep my Grandmother in her home and out of a nursing home. One of my uncles even moved into my Grandmothers home once she started using a walker to move around with.
Most elderly people live on a very tight budget regardless of how much money they saved throughout the years. Heck, once you hit 90, unless you were a lotto winner, you're lucky to even have much of a savings left so props to you Grandma for being wise with your money!!!! So, this holiday season I am planning on making it the best it can be for those I am still fortunate enough to help care for by making a gift basket filled with things my Grandmother will actually use like new slippers, a comfy blanket, a new deck of playing cards and a bouquet of Poise® -and- Depend®. My Grandmother can now use her own cash to order whatever fabulousness she might be eying in one of her catalogs since I took care of the basics!
My favorite place to hit up while shopping for my Grandmother is Sam's Club! With Sam’s Club Caregiving I can get everything I need to take care of my loved one, in just one stop! From prescription refills, to free health screenings, and personal care like Poise®and Depend®! Getting supplies for my Grandmother has never been easier.
When you download the Digimarc Discovery app, you can scan anywhere on the Depend® packaging, and it will drive you to the Sam’s Club Caregiver website for more awesome info!!!
While it might seem silly to buy a loved one Poise® or Depend® products, just know when they see how much you saved on the Depend® , they will be glad! Now, when you purchase Poise® and Depend® products at Sam’s Club, the new packaging shows just how much you save! Everyone, regardless of age appreciates a killer deal!!!

Isn't our basket cute?!?! We even made giving Depend® as cute as possible by making the Depend® into "flowers"! Just like giving underwear at Christmas time becomes a tad bit more glamorous due to the stocking it's in, rolling up Depend® into "Flowers" glams up the whole receiving undies as a gift!!! I bet Grandma smiles and then giggles when she sees her "flowers"!!! They are too cute not to smile about ;-)
The "flowers" are easy peasy to make!! Just take a kabob or crafting stick, roll your Depend® around the stick, tie with a ribbon and ta-da!!!! You now have a cute "flower".
Poise® Liners are specially designed for Light Bladder Leakage (LBL). These liners stay 3x drier than leading period-only liners and quickly lock away wetness and odor to help you stay fresh and dry all day.
Poise® Maximum Absorbency Pads provide even more absorbency to give you the confidence and protection you need for your Light Bladder Leakage (LBL) with discreet and worry-free protection.
Depend® FIT-FLEX® Underwear for Women has flexibility that moves with you. Featuring all-around leg elastics and a smooth, close-to-body fit, this slip-on protection is soft, quiet and breathable or outstanding comfort.
Depend® Fit-Flex® Underwear for Men featuresall-around leg elastics and a smooth, close-to-body fit, that has a slip-on style specifically designed for both comfort and protection.
If you want to save big on all your caregiving items, I suggest heading to your local Sam's Club today where members save big! You can find both Poise® -and- Depend® in the toilette section of your club!! In Jamestown NY, my local club, this section is in the far left corner of the store by the restrooms!
