10 Gifts for Hearing Impaired Seniors

Buying a Christmas gift for Grandma, Grandpa or an elderly relative can be hard – especially if they’re hard of hearing or deaf.

No subscription required for this emergency response system!

But there are some inexpensive gift options for the hearing impaired that can help ensure that they remain safe – and independent. Some ideas starting at $25:

Alert systems use flashing strobe lights to warn of fire, carbon monoxide or visitors.

Telephones for the hearing impaired use flashing strobes instead of or in addition to amplified ringers.

Wireless listening systems for either TV or music provide the hearing impaired with a comfortable volume in-ear so others aren’t disturbed.

• Two brands of emergency response phones now come with a pendant that can worn around the neck. Best of all, you can get this medical alert jewelry without a monthly subscription! Just program in a list of emergency contact phone numbers in your order of preference; Grandma’s neighbor, Grandpa’s assisted living facility manager, your elderly relative’s home care provider, or even 911. If Grandma falls, she simply pushes the button on the pendant and using speakerphone, she can talk to her emergency contact or 911. Your loved one can also answer and disconnect calls through the pendant! Look for the Geemarc Ampli600ER and the ClearSounds Talk 500ER.

A third emergency response phone called Freedomalert has a two-way speaker in the pendant. This provides extra assurance for those who might not remember to wear the pendant at all times. The person’s voice can often still activate the pendant.

    The Just5 Easyphone is a very ideal gift for people with hearing impairment. Essentially, this cell phone has an amplified sound so it is capable to provide easy and clear communication for them. This is also equipped with PERS, a feature that is very ideal for the elderly as this helps to secure their safety wherever they go. It’s basically a two-in-one gift. Best of all, Just5 isn’t expensive. In fact, my Auntie loves it as she can spend as low as $3.33 a month for it.
