When buying gifts for a senior you love this holiday season, it’s good to think outside the box! As a leading provider of elder care in Columbus, we know how hard it can be to find just the right thing, so treat him or her to a nice surprise with any of the following.
1. The Gopher Pick Up and Reach Tool
This awesome grabbing tool allows the user to pick up small items that are just out of reach. It’s perfect for seniors who are not able to easily get to items nearby or who may have trouble reaching high shelves.
2. A watch (or clock) with large numbers
Many senior citizens like to wear wristwatches, but it may be difficult for them to see the small hands on the clock. Giving your loved one a watch with large numbers allows them to easily check the time and still have all the style of a wristwatch.
3. A fuzzy robe
People of all ages appreciate a really soft robe. Your senior loved one can relax in a fluffy robe this holiday season and fight those winter blues. It can also help to keep your loved one warm, which is important because people tend to get cold more easily with age. Add in a pair of slippers or warm non-slip socks for maximum comfort!
4. A backrest pillow
These pillows are great for supporting the neck and back when sitting up in bed. Perfect for seniors who like to read in bed or watch television, this pillow will allow your loved one to sit up without as much strain on the neck and back.
5. A warm compress
These microwavable packs do wonders for muscle pain. They can be applied to the back, neck, legs, and there are even some for the eyes. Their impact will not go unappreciated!
6. A subscription to Amazon Prime Pantry
Sometimes it can be hard for seniors to get to the store, so giving loved ones an Amazon Prime account will allow them to order the food, vitamins, and health supplies that they need from Amazon Pantry without leaving the house.
