6 Great Gadgets for Seniors

No one said getting older was easy but thanks to these amazing gadgets, our lives can be simpler! By the time we reach 55, our bodies and five senses are not in prime shape which means we sometimes need help with regular tasks and activities.  This is where a little creativity and innovation come in.

Sight Aids

Sight Connection is a website loaded with  tech products that are easy to see and use such as the large print black on yellow computer key boards and large button phones.  http://www.sightconnection.com/


TV Ears for Seniors

For baby boomers  whose hearing isn’t what it used to be, the TV Ears portable listening system can help. This wireless headset system enhances the sounds and voices from TV (it works with the latest plasma and LCD flat screens), and it can be used as a wired headset for an iPod, computer, or other music and electronic device. The TV Ears Professional model clarifies television dialog; it also has an automatic Commercial Control that caps loud commercials so the listener doesn’t get an unexpected blast of volume. In addition, it amplifies cell phones, home phones, and even voices during one-on-one conversations. www.tvears.com/


Robotic Vacuum Cleaners

Cleaning house can be a real chore for seniors with all the pushing, lifting and bending. Fortunately, the Roomba robotic vacuum will vacuum all by itself. It will remember the layout of rooms avoiding furniture walls and stairs.  When the Roomba is done vacuuming, it finds its way back to the charging station and docks itself. This is a must-have gadget for pet-loving seniors. www.irobot.com


Reaching Tools for Seniors

A good reacher /grabber tool  can be very handy  for anyone with mobility issues. The “Aluminum Reacher with Magnetic Tip“ by Duro-Med is multifunctional. Available in 32 and 26-inch lengths. It also has a magnet built into the tip for picking up lightweight metal objects like keys and needles. http://reachergrabber.com/aluminum_reacher.html

But the Aluminum reacher is not great for retrieving heavy objects. For that, we suggest  the “Ettore Grip’n Grab“  which can handle most small to medium items. http://www.ettore.com/professionals/products/grip-%E2%80%99n-grab/



Night Driving Glasses

Finally, if you have trouble driving at night, we recommend the Night Drivers by Solar Shield. These yellow glasses cut down the glare of other cars and enhance contrast so you can distinguish objects on the road. www.nightdrivers.com
