Helping Seniors be Safe and Independent in the Bedroom
Seniors prefer Aging in Place. It`s a given and there are many reasons to support this. Firstly, there is this feeling of wanting to maintain their personal independence, being comfortable with their familiar setting and routines – “Home is where the heart is” as the saying goes, being assured of a healthier and safer environment and finally being able to manage the costs of staying at home. Nothing beats this and it is important to make life easier for older adults as they age. As the needs of seniors can change quickly the key is to keep an eye for the early signs of any struggles they face and to be able to act in a timely manner.
So, who says the elderly cannot live independently as they age? Arming them with comfort products is the first step to a user-friendly navigation around their bedroom. Let`s start with identifying the "Must Have" Products and give them the independence they deserve.

Motion Sensor Night Light
One of the biggest risks for seniors and the elderly is falling, which becomes an even greater hazard in the dark. Imagine the challenge of having to get up several times a night to use the bathroom. With slower reaction times and instability as one grows older, there is a need for proper indoor lighting to be able to function independently.
Motion sensor lighting can be the answer now as it can be placed in the home so that it lights up the walkway and steps up to the porch and makes it easier to see the lock and the doorknob. This type of lighting can help prevent falls due to tripping hazards or sharp corners that need to be avoided. Perfect in the bedroom leading to the bathroom, this motion sensor night light is a wireless night lamp with motion sensor activation. No worries about wastage of charges in the mornings as they are only activated if the surroundings are dark and there are movements. No batteries are needed. A one-time charge of the lamp with a USB cable and you have a 3-month uninterrupted light supply. What`s great is that it has a fast-charging feature for convenience and when the charge is low an indicator light comes on to remind you to charge again.
The lamp will automatically turn off around 30 seconds as you walk away and with the magnetic strips that has been included with the lamp, it can be placed almost anywhere around your house, be it the living room, next to your bed or even in the kitchen cabinet. So convenient especially for the elderly and even small children. The purchase comes with 4 units in a box as we know the customers will use it at many places as possible.
