Mother’s Day will here soon, so it’s time to think about how to make her day special.
Neenah, WI, April 27, 2015 –(PR.com)– For moms in an assisted living environment, there may be special considerations and challenges, but there are gift options out there that can help, says Lynn Wilson, founder of The CareGiver Partnership, a national online retailer of incontinence products and other home health care supplies.”
“Although assisted living spaces are designed to accommodate mobility issues, they can’t account for every need,” says Wilson, whose own mom lived in an assisted living center in a Chicago suburb for years. “This May, give a gift that helps Mom stay active, independent and healthy.”
Wilson offers five ideas for making assisted living a safer, more comfortable place for Mom:
1. Big-button amplified phone: Although Mom may be enjoying some independence in assisted living, it’s important to keep the lines of communication open. For moms who are hard of hearing or visually impaired, this phone can answer those challenges. Features include a lighted flashing ringer, oversized back-lit keys, photo options for preset numbers and talking caller ID.
2. Stander mobility products: For moms who have trouble with mobility, consider independence tools by Stander. The Assist-A-Tray, ideal for helping seniors comfortably rise from a seated position, features an ergonomic handle, swivel tray with cup holder and utensil compartment. Stander’s Curved Grab Bar lends a hand anywhere in a living space, including the bathroom if additional help is needed.
3. Never Run OutSM delivery service: In addition to a great sense of community and friendship that can be found in assisted living, there also may be less privacy than Mom is accustomed to. Never Run OutSM is a discreet way to ensure she always has incontinence products on hand without giving it much thought. With an easy, one-time setup, she’ll receive automatic deliveries of personal care products right to her door. Quantity and delivery frequency easily can be changed at any time online or over the phone.
4. Mom’s Meals: Even in assisted living environment, Mom may want to independently make her own choices, including food. Mom’s Meals delivery service helps ensure she gets nutritious, delicious meals. You or Mom chooses how many meals she needs, and all she has to do is refrigerate, microwave and enjoy.!Meals stay fresh in the refrigerator for two full weeks. Mom’s Meals offers menus for those with special dietary needs and more than 45 unique selections.
5. Skin care products: Create a collection of skin care products tailored for Mom. As mature skin loses its elasticity and becomes thinner, proper care is essential. Look for products designed to cleanse, moisturize, heal, and protect skin from chafing and infection. Put it all in a basket or box, add favorite treats and flowers or a small plant, and tie with a pretty scarf to make it extra special.
