Top Gifts for Seniors

Still trying to decide what to get your senior loved one for Christmas this holiday season?
Well, you’re not alone.
Because we realize that it can sometimes seem like an impossible task to shop for a person who has everything, FHC came up with a few creative gift ideas that are sure to make the yuletide gay this holiday.
For the senior who no longer has full use of their hands, wrist, and fingers due to arthritis, the Hickies No Tie Lacing System is the perfect gift.
Your loved one never has to worry about the cumbersome and sometimes uncomfortable task of bending down to tie and untie their shoe laces.
The Hickies No Tie Lacing System turns any pair of lace-up shoes into cozy, stylish footwear customizable to meet the needs of your senior.
Ideal for both leather and fabric shoes, this system comes in four fashionable colors and fits all sizes.
For those seniors with vision impairments, The Talking Watch by MaxiAids, makes keeping up with appointments and staying on top of tasks easier than ever before.
The Talking Watch offers your loved one greater independence and convenience by announcing the date and time, setting the alarm, providing hourly reports and more.
This superior quality wrist ware is not only elegant, but durable and water-resistance, too.
Who doesn’t love a great pair of socks? And when you combine comfort with a design created to relieve lower body fatigue, soreness and achiness – compression leg wear could be just what the doctor ordered.
Brands like VIM & VIGR help increase circulation, while offering all-day leg support for anyone you love who needs assistance while sitting, standing and even traveling.
Weaving together integrally knit true graduated compression and functional fabrics VIM & VIGR compression leg wear comes in a variety of sizes, fabrics and colors.
If your senior loves to cook and could sometimes use an extra hand in the kitchen, the Staybowlizer is another great gift idea.
Using a special suction technology, the Stabowlizer locks bowls to the kitchen table or counter keeping them in place, while eliminating the need to hold those hard-to-grip surfaces.
Mobility can be an issue for many older adults. Fortunately, there are a number of things that aid in improving your loved ones condition aside from in-home care and outpatient services, while those helping them stay connected with devices like the lap desk.
A lap desk allows your senior the ability to stay in touch with your family during the holiday season with a device that turns their favorite chair into a comfortable desk designed to sit right in their lap.
Your loved one can eat, knit sweaters, write letters and even use a tablet or lap top without having to move a muscle.
The lap desk is also one of our favorites because it’s portable and rests comfortably on their chair with light-weight stability.
If you are looking into options to improve your loved ones condition, look into Freedom Home Care in Highland Park, IL.  FHC offers a range of services to keep seniors comfortable and give you peace of mind.
