16 gifts for homebound seniors

  1. 1. #1 Rugged phone Easy to press buttons, simple to use and to top it off if you spill a little chamomile tea, no sweat.  This is a fantastic find for the homebound senior in your life.   #2 Standers Handybar     The must-have tool when taking someone to lunch, shopping or a doctor’s appointment to make life easier.  Its made for the car but I betcha you will be able to find uses around the home as well.   #3 Wii Fit Bring the gym to the comfort of your home that allows for a variety of exercises such as yoga, boxing, bowling etc.  Its super fun and the kids/grandkids have something to participate in when they visit.
  2. 2.       #4  Grab Bars These particular bars are as functional as they are beautiful  . . . and so important to keep a senior safe.  This is a must-installation in your home.       #5  Rolling Cart Perfect for laundry or shopping or toting items from one room to another.  This tool makes transporting items so much easier.     #6  Custom ice cube trays Tasks such as getting ice can go overlooked BUT there is a tray made specifically for arthritic hands so one does not have to go without    
  3. 3.       #7  Screen Magnifier Software Stay connected to your senior via the computer but make sure that they can truly see what you are writing in an email.     #8  Physical Screen Magnifier This is a piece of hardware to place on your monitor (rather than software).  If you are looking for a magnifier with a smaller price point than look no further than this     #9  Easy Reach Seat Belt Handle Brilliant piece of assistive technology to help your loved one put a seat belt around them     #10  Magic Opener The magic opener is simply magic for someone who struggles with these daily tasks of opening a bottle or can.
  4. 4.     #11 An adjustable shower bench Tasks that we undertake each day without a second thought don’t always come easy to us as we age.  Adding this bench to a shower can make all the difference #12 An eReader Endless access to books, reading and entertainment with the Kindle is a must-have gift for every senior that I speak with.   #13  Landline + Pendant A fantastic landline made by VTech with large buttons, picture icons and a pendant that can be clipped to your belt or worn around your neck.
  5. 5.         #14 Seated Gardener’s Kit           #15 Big Lamp Switch Truly perfect at any age to turn off and on those tricky lamps.     #16 iPad Using technology as a connection tool is what its all about.  Put on Skype, Email, FaceTime and stay connected.
