The 10 Most Useful Household Gifts for Seniors
Useful and Convenient Devices to Ease the Daily Living of Seniors
Shopping for an senior is often difficult. I love to give people something that will get used. Consider giving your parents or grandparents a gift that will be truly useful to them. Get them something that will make the daily tasks of life a bit easier and safer.
This list shows some great items that they will love. Someday they'll wonder how they ever lived without it.
They have probably already got all the picture frames and mugs that they will ever need. Why not give something a bit less novelty, and a bit more useful.

3. Jitterbug Cell Phone
The Cell Phone Designed for Seniors
New cell phones are not easy for many seniors use. They have tons tiny buttons, and tiny print on a tiny screen, and they are not very easy to hear from.
The Jitterbug was designed to tackle all of these problems. It works like a traditional phone, with no complicated menus to scroll through. Also, there is an operator feature where you can have the operator dial for you - a saved number like "Call my daughter, Liz" or a new number you read them. This is convenient for people with low vision, or who may not be able to physically dial on their own.
You can also arrange for Jitterbug to call the phone to remind you to take your medications.
Keep things simple with The Jitterbug. A Jitterbug cell phone makes a great gift for family and friends on your list. Order today and get a FREE car charger.
