If you’re busy looking after an aging parent, it can be hard to find time for holiday shopping. And if you’re running on empty, as many family caregivers are, coming up with the right gift idea may simply take more mental energy than you have right now.
So, we’ve decided to make things a little easier for you. We’ve created a small online shop that features gifts for the senior in your life. Some gifts are meant to make their life easier. Others may just bring a smile to their face.
No need to get lost online looking for ideas. Our shop is small enough that you can easily browse through it in a matter of minutes.
Best of all, if you see something you like, just click on it and you can buy it online right then and there and have it shipped. (Full disclosure: some of these are affiliate links which net us a small percentage.)
Here are the types of items you’ll find.
Compact items for downsizing
If your parent is downsizing, they may have a difficult time fitting some of their things into their new, smaller home. We’ve found some compact items and storage solutions that may help.
We’ve worked with thousands of seniors and families over the years, so we have a sense of the devices on the market that can help someone with arthritis, mobility issues, or memory problems remain as independent as possible. Here, you’ll find everything from long-handled reachers to sock aids to simplified phones.
Just for fun
This section of our shop includes a variety of items, including large print word puzzles, senior-friendly guides on how to use a computer tablet, and pet accessories.
The holidays are approaching quickly!
