Daily Living Made Easier

My senior mom and I went to visit grandkids a while back and had such a delightful time. The trip was a bit tiring – especially for my mom – but the hugs more than made up for it! We took lots of fun and educational craft projects, books, and goodies that were a big hit, led to tons of photos and fun family memories and, of course, I’ll be writing about some or all of them in the weeks to come.

My senior mom took one item in particular for herself, that was a huge help AND turned out to be a big help with the grandkids. She packed her reacher grabber easily in her suitcase and it made it to our destination and back home again with no problems. Of course, if our luggage had gotten lost, it’s reasonably priced and fairly easy to replace, which I appreciated.

She used the reacher grabber in her hotel to pick up items that fell on the floor as she just can’t get down to get them any more. When the grandkids came to pick her up in her room, they were enthralled with the handy dandy little tool. She kept them quite entertained for some time – first, by showing them how it worked, and second, by letting them have fun test driving it themselves. I think they liked the light on the end as much as they enjoyed squeezing the handle! Fun for them and easier for great-grandma to spot things in dark corners!

Don’t you love it when something for a senior parent is fun for the grandkids or vice versa? One of the sweet joys of the Sandwich Generation, that’s for sure! 🙂

    You do find the best resources, Kaye!. I’m going to try and buy one of those for my Dad today.

    He has a grabber now, but it isn’t lighted — I really like that feature.

  2. Hi Mary, Thank you 🙂 It has been very handy over the last several months and doubly so on our last trip since she isn’t as flexible as in the past. 🙂

  3. Oh Mary, I’m so sorry to hear about that. I hope this does help him. 🙂

    Yes, my Dad fell out of his wheelchair just a few weeks ago trying to grab something off the floor. He has a regular grabber, but he can’t see that well. I think this would really help.

  4. Oh I am so thrilled to see this! Mom has a feeding tube in her tummy and it really restricts her bending over. This is going to be perfect for her! Thanks for the info! 🙂
