CREATIVE GADGETS FOR ELDERS: No Computer Required!

Baby Boomers are the youngest of the elder population group looking to make their daily living a little easier.  Fortunately there are many helpful devices available that are outside the medical related world of assistive and supportive devices. While some products may be new on the market and others have been around for a while, there is hardly an area untapped. These are just a sampling of what entrepreneurs are developing for this huge and growing demographic.  And you don’t have to be an elder to enjoy their usefulness!


For Food Preparation:

 Safe-T-element: Supports Safe Cooking on an electric stovetop!
Welcome a revolutionary new safety gadget for cooking created for electric stove users! This new Smart Burner will  help prevent cooking fires, save energy and provide superior cooking performance while providing an attractive design
 
Microwave Ring Dish Holder: Prevents spills and burns!
Avoid possible spills or burns when you remove a dish out of the microwave! This simple holder will help you safely remove your bowl or plate from  the microwave.
 
Americano Coffee Maker: Serving single cups of Coffee, Tea, or Expresso!
This is simpler than having multiple devices that each make a different drink! You can have a cup of coffee for yourself and a moment later be brewing tea for a friend. Fast and easy!


For Communicating
Jitterbug Cellphone: Basic, big buttons and easy to read!If you just want the basics including operator assistance, this is for you. Medication reminders, a live nurse hotline and wellness calls are optional extras.

Toss the breadcrumbs aside! This personal GPS locator will retrace your steps back to where you started and can store up to 5 locations.

PILL DISPENSER with Audio Visual and Cellular Capacity  For taking medicine on time!
These pill dispensers are basically cellular connected pill boxes that provide both visual and sound reminders. Forget your pill? The box will phone family members if the medication(s) aren’t taken within a specified time.

This is the latest GPS revolution in your feet! It will alert a caregiver if the wearer leaves a designated area.
