My mom-in-law loves her Medline Bed Assist bar and your senior loved one may too. It’s super easy to install with a rail slide that slips under your mattress. Has height adjustable legs and grip bar. And the pocket makes it very easy to access bedside items like books, flashlight, television remote, etc.
Another popular bed assist bar that our readers have been purchasing is the Stander EZ model. It’s wider which may help if there are problems with falling out of bed. It folds out of the way when needed and again, the pockets are great to store and access bedside items.

Jergens Ultra Healing Dry Skin Moisturizer – another popular personal care product is this Jergens moisturizer. Many medications that seniors take can make their skin dry and itchy and if they scratch their skin (which are usually very thin) they can get cuts which may turn into infections. So keeping the skin supple and moist is very important for older adults.
Wishcotton Light Breathable Slippers with Nonslip Sole – we strongly advocate for older adults to wear non-slip shoes or at the very least, nonslip socks. These slippers are quite popular amongst our readers and for good reason. They have a memory foam footbed, can be used indoors and outdoors, come in a variety of colors and by all reports, are very comfortable for most people.

It’s made of aluminum (which makes it perfect for outdoors), it’s 30 inches long and is coated with grip paint which the manufacturer says will not rust or wear out.

Echo (3rd Gen) – Smart speaker with Alexa – another great product by Amazon is the smart speaker which is essentially an Alexa product without the screen (like the Echo Show). It’s perfect for listening to music, audio books, podcasts and can even be used as a speaker for your television set.
