Looking for some convenient, new ways to keep your senior toasty warm this winter?
Here’s a list of 7 fun gadgets to help keep your senior warm all throughout the cold, winter months!
Small portable heaters are an easy way to keep seniors warm no matter the room. Look for a space heater with an oscillating fan to keep your senior’s whole body warm. Or, buy a stand still one just for the feet. Be sure to get a heater with overheat protection!
Protect your senior’s hands from the cold with electric hand warmers. It can be difficult for seniors to get out of the house for walks and exercise during the mid-winter months. Especially those seniors suffering from arthritis, trigger fingers, and the like. If that’s the case for your senior, consider buying a set of electric hand warmers that your senior can hold tight or stash in his or her pockets.
Hot beverages are a simple remedy to seniors feeling a chill “deep in their bones.” With an electric kettle, your senior’s drinks will be heated in no time. This is a brilliant gadget for seniors who have trouble remembering to check the kettle on time. As opposed to a conventional kettle, an electric kettle will actually turn off on its own. You can also purchase an electric kettle with a keep warm function. This way, if your senior forgets to make his or her beverage right away, the kettle will continue to keep the water warm.
If your senior gets chilled easily, a regular old blanket might not cut it anymore. Now, you can buy your senior a heated blanket. With a heated blanket, your senior can raise or lower the temperature instantly, allowing full control and comfortability. Whether watching tv, resting, working, or reading- a heated blanket will keep your senior warm and snug. Plus, there’s a wide variety of colors and styles to choose from.
If you like the idea of an electric blanket, but want something a little smaller for your senior- an electric heating pad is a perfect alternative. Heating pads are soft and cozy, and they come in a variety of sizes. You can easily buy a heating pad for your senior’s neck and shoulders, back, stomach, feet, and more.
If your senior is a techy- you’ll definitely want to take a look at this gadget! A heated computer mouse uses advanced heating technology to keep the top surface of the mouse warm. If your senior uses the computer a lot (or even a little) having a heated mouse can really help keep the cold at bay, as well as help with sore muscles, tendons, and arthritis.
Don’t let your senior get chilled from a cooled drink in the winter. Seniors often enjoy taking their time drinking coffee, tea, and other heated beverages. And, rightfully so! Unfortunately, hot beverages cool down quickly in the winter. Keep your senior’s beverages warm for as long as wanted with an electric, temperature-controlled mug. While you’re at it, also take a look at electric travel mugs for all your senior’s on-the-go beverage needs.
