As we get older, it becomes more common to experience mobility difficulties. These can be caused by any number of health issues, such as arthritis, stroke, or injury, and they can also make it harder to live independently. Fortunately, there are a number of products on the market designed to make life significantly easier for seniors. These products are simple, effective, and convenient to use, even if you don’t face mobility challenges.
Gripping small objects can be challenging if you don’t have a lot of hand strength. Key Turners, which are essentially plastic handles that lock onto your keys, give you a wider base to grab and make keys easier to turn in the most stubborn locks.
Bed Assist Bar
You might be the type of person who jumps out of bed at the sound of the alarm now. However, getting out of bed can become more difficult with age. This clever assist bar slides under the mattress, which keeps it secure. Many even have pockets you can use to hold nighttime essentials.
ClipperPro Nail Clippers
Instead of a tiny nail clipper that’s dull and hard to use, the ClipperPro has a large handle and medical-grade blades. The handle fits easily into the palm of your hand, which gives you more leverage for pressing down. The blade even swivels so you don’t have to twist your wrist at awkward angles to get the whole nail. ClipperPro is perfect for fingernails or toenails and eliminates the pain and difficulty in cutting nails.
Clip-On Book Light
Clip-on lights make it easier to put light exactly where you need it. Older eyes can have more trouble seeing in low light. These lights are perfect for reading and other hobbies.
Big Button Remote
As cable boxes get more complicated, the remotes get more buttons. And those buttons get harder to see. Simplify your remote with a big button TV remote, which only has a few easy-to-press buttons. Bonus, this also makes it easier for people with arthritis to use.
A grab bar is a simple addition to your shower, but it can make using the shower a lot safer. Falls are much more likely to occur in the bathroom, which means it’s important to take extra precautions. Luckily, this precaution is easy to install in just about any shower.
