Similar to yours, our story starts with our grandparents.
Alder & Owl is a family venture founded on the basis of legacy and continuous connection. The last few years have highlighted for us and many, how important connecting with our loved ones is.
Our goal is to foster that connection throughout the entire year. No matter where you are, Alder & Owl is a special gift for loved ones, because we carefully curate our boxes for all care moments. Each box is filled with gift ideas for grandma & grandpa that are a balance of local goods and necessity items.
Sending an Alder & Owl subscription, not only provides our loved ones with what they need, it also lets them know we’re thinking about them. That is the beauty of connection.
Stephanie's Nonna, Madelina, spent 14 years in a long-term care facility in Toronto, Ontario. The wonderful staff there made her stay comfortable and our families were always welcome to visit, and we did often. "My fondest memories with my grandmother during those times was walking her out to the communal garden to pick flowers or vegetables. She tended a beautiful garden when she lived in her home with my Nonno, and her garden reminded her of Italy. I’ll always think of her when I garden, and I’m proud to keep here memory alive with this initiative".
Bryan's grandmother, Sheilah, spent 5 years in both a retirement home & nursing home facility in Mississauga, Ontario. The staff and residents created a wonderful environment of community and support. "I will always cherish the visits with my grandmother, I would deliver fresh Tim Horton’s coffee and read to her often. I’ll never forget the joy those moments of connection brought us."
