With Christmas in less than two weeks, we thought we’d put together a list of great gifts for seniors. The following list consists of items that are not only functional, but also wonderful things to receive.
Heating pad wrap for neck and back
Arthritis bottle opener
Toilet bowl night light- these come in a variety of colors and will help guide the way in the middle of the night.
Easy twist grip jar opener
Full page magnifying glass reader
Talking button clock- This is a large “button” that when pushed announces the current time.
Automatic jar opener- If your loved one may not have the strength to use an easy twist grip opener, this could be a great alternative.
Dementia day clock- Large print clock which displays not only the current time, but also day and date.
LED bed lights- These lights go under and around the bed to give light in the middle of the night.
Foldable walking cane
Wireless headphone system- Great for someone who is hard of hearing- Many headphone systems are programmable with a television, allowing your loved one to enjoy thier favorite tv program.
Folding tv tray
Magnetic necklace clasp
Motion sensor light switch- Allows your loved one to turn on the light simply by walking in front of the light switch.
Single serve coffee maker
Roomba robotic vacuum- This automatic vacuum is easy to set up and can vacuum your loved ones floors on a daily basis.
Heated throw blanket
Sock aid- Takes away your loved ones stress in having to bend over to put on socks.
Car swivel seat/Travel aids- The swivel seat allows your loved one to easily get in and out of a vehicle, while a travel aid can be used to help steady them.
Photo Phones- This is a landline phone but rather than having to look for and dial a phone number or remember who is on which speed dial number, your loved one can simply push the button next to the picture of the contact on their phone.
Soup and cracker bowl set
Induction cooktop- These are great because the top of the cooktop does not get hot which not only helps to reduce the risk of burns, but if your loved one accidentally leaves the cooktop on, it’s not going to start a fire.
Smart shopper grocery list organizer- Your loved one speaks to the grocery organizer to create a grocery list. This is a great way to ensure nothing is forgotten at the grocery store.
Meal delivery service- There are a few different services in the Tucson/Green Valley area that deliver either weekly or individual meals to seniors.
Sleep therapy machine
Home satellite radio- Allow your loved one to listen to some of their favorite tunes anytime.
Voice control reminder system
Extension pole grabber
Audio books- These are great for senior who have loved reading but may no longer have the sight needed to read books anymore.
These are just a handful of items we found that we thought would make great gifts for seniors. Most of these items are very affordable and available on Amazon. If you’d like to know more about any of these items please reach out to us!
Thank you so much for keeping up with us! We wish everyone a very Happy Holiday Season!
