1. Music devices that have your loved one’s favorite genres of music. If buying a device, make sure to make it more user-friendly by putting stickers on buttons like Play and Stop. Try avoiding devices that have complicated interfaces or touch screen. Some touch screen devices do not recognize older adults’ touch like they do younger.
  2. Jigsaw puzzles! They’re a great way to exercise the brain. Keep in mind that it’s better for pieces to be bigger so they can see.
  3. Weighted blankets can help relieve distress and anxiety, but be mindful of the recommended proportions according to your loved one’s weight. Their comfort and safety are most important.
  4. Electric toothbrushes can make brushing easier and put less strain on your loved one’s hands, wrists, and arms.
