I made my mother-in-law a wrap to just cover her shoulders and upper-arms that could just be slipped on and tied in front. She couldn't move her arms enough to get into sleeves, and she was always cold because her blankets only covered up to her arms when she sat up in bed.

bedridden gift
I've been knitting a hot-water bottle cover (with an intarsia heart on it) that is featured in the ROwen Junior pattern book from last year (or so). You could also knit a super-soft (alpaca or something) pillow cover--maybe neck roll shape. Sew up an insert filled with buckwheat and a handful of dried lavendar.

If the invalid was female I would say bed-jacket or shawl but seeing as it is a man I would think maybe a hat and scarf or even a combination of the two - a scarf thingy that covered the head also.

My recommendation would be instead of a knitted gift, how about a gift of knitting. lol

Why not take whatever you're knitting, and sit with him to talk while you work on it? I bet he would enjoy the visit more than any gift you make.
