Top 5 Innovative Tech Gifts for Seniors in 2017

Finding the right gift for seniors in your life can be challenging. While techy gifts may not be at the top of your list, these innovative devices can be meaningful and helpful to seniors. Technology is now available to address everyday stresses in seniors lives such as safety, health, and companionship. Don’t let the senior in your life be intimidated by emerging technology and consider one of these gifts for him or her this holiday season.  

Gift Option #1 - WiseWear ($295-$345)

Benefit to Seniors: Safety and Convenience Think of this as a Fitbit specially designed for seniors. This smart jewelry tracks your heart rate, calories and sleep patterns like most popular fitness devices. Connected to a smartphone, it also provides notification features for incoming calls and important alerts, such as medication reminders. The sleek aesthetic design is replacing traditional plastic button panic devices. The difference is the safety feature. The user taps the bracelet 3 times to create a distress signal that is sent to the emergency contacts linked to the device. Your exact GPS location is transmitted.

Gift Option #2 - Silver Mother Sensors ($320)

 Benefit to Seniors: Safety and Health This device incorporates into the everyday lives of seniors, continuously monitoring their safety and health. The small devices attach to household items like pill dispensers, refrigerators and doors. The sensors continuously monitor daily activity, detecting movement of medications and sends a notification when you forget to take your meds. Family members can access an app that tracks their loved one’s daily activities and detects any changes in behaviors. Alerts are sent if there is cause for concern or change in activity.

Gift Option #3 - Amazon Echo ($99)

 Benefits to Seniors: Companionship and Entertainment Amazon Echo is a hands-free speaker that you control with your voice. This device acts as a virtual assistant connected to a smart speaker.

Gift Option #3 - Reminder Rosie ($120)

 Benefits to Seniors: Companionship, Comfort and Entertainment Reminder Rosie is a voice assistant designed specifically for the senior population. It has the appearance of an alarm clock with a large digital screen.

Memory Care

When Memory Loss Affects the Holidays

As the holiday season approaches, many families and friends look forward to gatherings and celebrations. Though it’s a cheerful time for many, holiday gatherings can be a challenge for seniors suffering from dementia or memory loss. It can also be a trying time for those caring for older adults. Faced with different routines, activities and conversations, seniors dealing with memory loss may feel overwhelmed. It’s important to know that there are many ways to connect with your loved ones without causing stress or anxiety during holiday gatherings.

To ensure that holiday time is enjoyable for you and your loved ones, here are a few tips:

  • The holidays are a time to celebrate and reflect on family traditions and memories. Take the time to reminisce about stories from the past but do not put pressure on seniors to recall names or details of the story. They simply may enjoy listing to stories of the past.
  • Prepare family members, friends and other visitors to let them know that the person may have changed since they last saw them. Explain that he or she may not recognize them or confuse them with someone else. Remind family and friends not to be offended as the individual has some forgetfulness. Remind them to treat him or her as normal as possible and with respect.
  • Try to avoid situations that will confuse or frustrate the individual, such as talking about current events or topics they don’t remember.
  • Plan activities that are familiar such as singing old holiday songs, singing church hymns, watching old holiday movies, soft music, etc. Music can act as therapy soothing a person affected by dementia.
  • Try to schedule activities earlier in the day because as the day goes on the senior may become tired and restless. Try not to disrupt their typical routine and schedule meals around their usual meal time.
  • Create traditional family recipes. If the senior in your family enjoys cooking, invite them to help in the kitchen with simple tasks. Familiar smells and tastes can evoke positive memories in those affected by memory loss.

Despite the challenges of memory loss, it’s important to celebrate the special moments together.

Express your love and gratitude with a warm smile and gentle touch. If you know a senior who is lonely this time of year, reach out to them. The love and comfort of family and friends make a difference. Especially for seniors who are dealing with dementia or memory loss during the holiday season.…
