Keeping an eye on your aging mom or dad can be a rough prospect when you are already focused on running a household and keeping track of your kids. Thankfully, there are a few tech gadgets that can help provide peace of mind when it comes to making sure your parents are well taken care of even in their old age. Consider these gadgets as a gift to help them have an easier time taking care of themselves or as a way to keep an eye on them when you cannot be around. Some of these devices are so clever you probably didn’t even realize they existed.
Bigger Tech Devices
As we age, our eyes start breaking down, making it harder to read the fine print used in books and websites. If you notice a senior in your life struggling to interact with something on the internet or stopping reading when they previously enjoyed it, consider getting them bigger tech devices to help alleviate this issue. For avid readers, Amazon makes a larger sized Kindle capable of displaying larger fonts. The Apple iPad Pro is also a useful companion object for seniors who want to access the web but find the text size on most traditional web pages too small to read. It features accessibility settings enabling you to enlarge the font for easier reading. The same can typically be done with fonts on a smart television if your relative is having trouble using the TV’s interface.
