Safe Gifts for the Elderly this Holiday Season

By Debbie Humphrey

We are in the midst of the holiday shopping season, and it won’t be long before we are last minute shopping. I, for one, spend a lot of time contemplating what gifts to purchase for my adult children, but also the special seniors in my life. When I ask, I get the standard answer, “I don’t need anything.” That may or may not be true, leaving me with the same unanswered question.

Medical Alert Systems Direct Link Home Helpers ClearwaterSo what safe gifts for the elderly are available that will help my Godmother, or beloved Uncle Joe who lives alone?

The most obvious choice I can think of is a monitoring system we offer through Home Helpers® that will provide a safeguard for them in the event of a medical or security emergency.

With Direct Link® monitoring and medical alert systems, Godmother, Uncle Joe, and I could have peace of mind knowing they have Help at the Touch of a Button™. Monitoring services and medical alert systems are literally life-savers for seniors striving to maintain their independence, recovering from injuries, or requiring in-home care.

Other options for safe gifts for the elderly include slippers or shoes with non-skid soles; a hand-crafted walking stick or support apparatus to be used inside or outside of the home; a weather alert radio; or my specialty, a caregiver service, like Home Helpers®, to provide safety checks of the interior and exterior of their residence, companionship, light housekeeping, transportation assistance, meal preparation and grocery shopping.

These are several safe gift possibilities for the elderly. Keep them safe and secure by learning more about Direct Link® monitoring services and the caregiving services available 24/7/365.
