Daily Living Made Easier

This old clock is lovely but might not be loud enough for our hearing impaired senior parents - but this clock and pink teddy bear clip art is definitely cute for Pink Saturday things though

Hearing loss is often synonomous with aging issues. The funny thing in my Sandwich Generation household, though, is that my senior mom hears too well (you wouldn't believe how low she keeps the TV!) while I have terrible hearing! And I've only been to a couple of concerts in my not-so-short Baby Boomer life (BEACH BOYS, baby! 🙂 ), so you can't blame it on that! I was quite intrigued by the article, Good News for Boomers and Seniors – Paths to Better Speech and Hearing, and the great resources listed by Carsten Trads, president of Clarity, for all of us boomers and seniors as we deal more and more with this issue. I thought we'd spend the next few weeks exploring them a bit further.

One in particular caught my eye as it seemed quite useful for the whole Sandwich Generation – the loud and vibrating alarm clock. I shared one in that article. Here's two more I found:

This loud vibrating alarm clock also has big numbers making it useful for the Sandwich Generation caring for elderly parents dealing with aging eyes and hearing impaired issues

This alarm clock is not only great for waking a hearing impaired senior. It's also quite useful for those of us with kids or grandkids who can sleep through anything, including an alarm clock's shrill ring! This particular model has 

  • a built-in telephone signaler so you or your elderly parents don't miss phone calls
  • a very 12 volt bed shaker – the reviewers really appreciated this!
  • built-in flashing lights alert you to both the telephone ringing and the wake-up alarm
  • a loud 113db adjustable tone and volume control
  • a battery backup to maintain the proper time in the event of a power outage

A very handy tool, don't you think?

Pink Saturday and cute country clipart make things so much fun for the Sandwich Generation

GUESS WHAT! I also found a very pink, very loud and very vibrating alarm clock – delightful for PINK SATURDAY! It gives you the option of an alarm that only vibrates, vibrates and buzzes, or buzzes only. And isn't it CUTE!  ðŸ™‚

Best of all, both of these loud and vibrating alarm clocks got great reviews. Excellent resources for the Sandwich Generation, as we are caring for our elderly parents, babysitting our grandchildren, and dealing with hearing issues for a variety of ages!

    Ah, the Beach Boys. I think I saw them well into their senior years 30 years ago! 🙂

    Happy Pink Saturday!

  1. Oh my gosh, I just bought a vintage alarm clock yesterday! I got it as a prop for my pictures! (I’ve had fun reading about it and finding out how many people collect them–I had no idea!)

    I hope you’re having a great weekend…Blessings to you, my friend!

  2. Hehehehehehehe, Nancy! I know just what you mean. But we still love their music, don’t we. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  3. Too cool, Cindy! I had two from my grandparents and they are so pretty. I think they are each at different kids’ homes at the moment after 2 moves. 🙂 I’ll look forward to seeing what you do with them. 🙂
