Many daily tasks can be made simpler with the use of technology, and there are some great products to help make your senior loved one’s life run smoother. The staff at Home Care Assistance of Las Vegas has put together a list with a few of these helpful tech devices.
1. Your Minder Personal Alarm Clock
From $33 and up
Worried that your loved one might forget to take important medications? Up to 6 different alarms can be set on the Your Minder Personal Alarm Clock, making this gadget a great solution for ensuring medications are taken regularly and on time.
2. Amazon Kindle
From $49 and up
Providing access to over a million books, the Amazon Kindle is currently one of the highest reviewed e-readers on the market. Unlike more complicated alternatives, the Kindle is easy to use and includes a number of helpful features, such as adjustable font size and brightness. The Kindle also supports text-to-speech, a handy tool for those with poor eyesight or arthritis.
From $79 and up
The Fitbit is a fitness tracker that allows people to conveniently track a number of health-related statistics, including sleep, steps taken, and nutrition. It is also slim, comfortable, and easy to wear.
4. iRobot Roomba
From $399 and up
While this device is more expensive than the others on this list, the Roomba is a smart investment for your loved one. By automatically vacuuming or mopping floors, the Roomba ensures your loved one can spend more time on the activities he or she loves, while also avoiding the physical stress associated with constant cleaning.
