What are the best products for older adults?
Getting in and out of bed becomes more challenging as we age, and a bed lever is a low-cost device making a big difference. It’s about a third of the way down the bed and offers your parent something to grab onto as they get into bed (so it’s suitable for people who struggle with balance). Moving in bed while lying down can also be difficult, but with the help of this bed transfer aid, your parent will be able to move themselves up or roll over. In addition to the type seen above, there is also this free-standing form.
Fall Detecting Alarm
Falls can occur inside and outside the house due to sliding on uneven terrain or tripping over a rug. Personal alarms for seniors are an excellent method to help our parents preserve their independence while also giving us peace of mind. This location-sensitive Taking Care fall detection alarm provides a way to call for help in an emergency. So, the alarm monitoring system knows your parents’ whereabouts.
Eye-Friendly Light for Reading
Omeril 9 LED Clip On Light Book
These lights make it simpler to read a book or see a laptop screen at night without straining your eyes. It’s appealing since it has an adjustable brightness level (touch-sensitive) and is rechargeable through a USB. It’s an everyday item that may drastically improve a senior’s life quality.
Sock aids are a favourite of ours. They’re an affordable must-have aid that encourages independent dressing by eliminating the need for people to stoop down to put on socks. And, given that we’re all probably wearing socks and slippers right now, it’s a handy tool to have. Learn how to use a sock aid in this article.
SpillNot Cup Holder
This spill-proof cup holder is fantastic and one of those inexpensive things that can make a meaningful difference! It’s for your loved one if they can no longer carry a hot drink any distance and must sip it in the kitchen or with help. Thanks to science, the liquid doesn’t swirl around, and the cup does not slide off the tray. Anyone with movement issues, one-sided weakness, tremors, or simply a fear of handling hot drinks may appreciate the SpillNot cup holder.
Aidapt Malling Perching Stool with Padded Arms and Padded Back
Another helpful product, a perching stool, is an excellent alternative for someone who can’t stand for long periods but still wants to cook since it relieves strain on their feet. It’s especially vital for someone who is living alone but yet wishes to be self-sufficient and cook. The perching stool has a comfortable angled seat and adjustable legs, which we appreciate. For added stability and safety, there are side-mounted bars.
