Following are the products that we are recommending to help you to make the bedroom safer for yourself as you age in place or for your senior loved ones.
For those under stress, weighted blankets are supposed to work much like touch pressure therapy. Essentially, the weight of the blankets induces bodily pressure that may trigger the production of serotonin – a feel-good chemical – and this can help the elderly relieve the symptoms of several conditions.
