It can be difficult to see your loved ones' age. We all want our loved ones to be safe and comfortable. We also want them to be as independent as possible for as long as possible. If you’re the caregiver for your loved one, it can be straining, frustrating and draining.
What if there were products that made your life as a caregiver easier while empowering your loved one to live as independently as possible? There are many senior care products available, but most of them require the caregiver to assist the senior to use. These products can take up precious caregiver time and hinder your loved one from remaining mentally and physically active and independent.
At the Senior Care Shop, we understand the stress and time constraints of caregivers and the limited digital know-how of seniors. This is why we have a variety of products that are both new and innovative, yet simple and effective. The struggle with most seniors include answering and communicating on the phone, remembering appointments and managing medication.
Below are some of our innovative products that address these common issues and help both the caregiver and the senior:
Seniors can develop hearing and memory issues that make it hard for them to answer and communicate on a normal telephone. There are many standard and mobile phones available that target seniors and their needs. There are few places where you can find a large variety of senior phones in one place. At the Senior Care Shop, you’ll find amplified phones with enhanced sounds, extra bright lights and large buttons. We also have phones that come with extras such as pictures for seniors with memory issues.
At the Senior Care Shop, we have amplified phones that will meet your senior’s needs. No longer will there be a hesitancy, confusion or frustration for seniors to talk on the phone. For caregivers, this will lessen their load by getting rid of one task they typically have to do.
Caregivers regularly need to remind their seniors of various appointments. This means that part of the caregiver’s duty is to keep track of the senior’s schedule. Sometimes schedules get busy and appointments get missed. Caregivers have a lot on their plate, so keeping someone else’s schedule straight may be moved to second priority. A dementia clock helps keep the senior mentally sharp by helping them remember the day and time as well as appointments will ease this caregiver responsibility. Our DayClox will also build confidence in the senior and slow the progression of memory loss.
DayClox has unique features that address the problems and insecurities of seniors with memory loss. These features include:
- The time of day is displayed in large, easy-to-read numbers that can easily be seen from 15 feet away.
- Spells out both the day and the month are fully spelled out
- Features 8 different language displays
- A sleek design
- Dims slightly for nighttime use
- 12-hour (am/pm) or 24-hour military time displays
- A/C adapter (included) for power
- A removable plastic screen protector
- 8” diagonal display screen
If you haven’t noticed already, as we age, our bodies shut down and are prone to a variety of health issues. The vast majority of seniors take medication for at least one medical condition. If your loved one takes multiple pills each day, it can be hard to keep track of when each pill is to be taken and to refill the pill box each week. At the Senior Care Shop, we offer a self-management electronic pill box so that even seniors can use it themselves. It also has technology built into it that will also make it appealing to younger, tech-savvy caregivers. Here are some of the features of our pill box:
- Stores 7 days of solid medication separated into 4 daily dosing intervals: morning, noon, evening, and bedtime.
- Is “non” lockable
- Has extra deep pill storage compartments
- Has compact design
- Features medication reminders through a visual LED-lighting system, audio beeps, and electronic messaging (e-mail or text messaging)
- The unique, built-in pill identification system helps seniors and their caregivers visually recognize medications by name, dosing schedule, and indication.
