Products Can Make A World of Difference

It is essential to realize that I have seen it all over the past 25 years of running my home care agency to working in hospitals. Another critical point is that caregiving can be overwhelming, and life can be simple with a few great products. So, here are my top products to make caregiving easier.

Goodnites Mattress Pads

The first thing to remember, many bed pads can bunch up or leak. As a result, I have had the pleasure of trying most bed pads. For this reason, my all-time favorite is Goodnites Mattress Pads. They are generally for children who wet the bed but work great for your family and loved ones. Goodnites are very easy to use and are soft on the skin. In addition, the pads are designed to lock in odor and absorb a lot of liquid. Finally, they have four easy-to-remove peel-off strips to stay in place on any sheet.

Bed Rails

Peace of mind in knowing that your loved one is sleeping soundly and securely. I like The Stander EZ Adjust Bed Rail because it is easy to use and ties under the mattress with no problems. The Stander EZ Adjust Bed Rail is the only length adjustable bed rail in its market. It fits any hospital or home bed and can be used as half bed handrail assist or extended to a full-size bed rail for fall protection at night. The collapsible bed rail folds down when not in use and quickly” adjusts “from 26″ to 42” with a button push. Also included are a handy six-pocket organizer pouch for keeping handy items within reach & a dual safety strap for securing the bed rail.

Kitchen Mama Electric Can Opener

Opening a can with arthritis can be very painful and makes cooking depressing. The best can opener for arthritis or when you have no strength in your hands is the Kitchen Mama automatic can opener.  It is the best hands-free can opening solution for you! 4 AA batteries make it work like a charm!  Two taps to open any cans with our electric can opener. Push the button to turn it on. It cuts cans 360° along the lid. Push the button again to stop.  The blade cuts along the side of the lid without touching the food inside. Leave no sharp cuts.

Great help for people with challenges gripping, best friend for the elderly suffering from arthritis problems. Your hands deserve to be treated like royalty! No effort. No injury. Save your energy. Save time. 


I have encountered many situations where a hurricane could be used, and I always ensured most of my clients who needed a cane used the cyclone. The hurricane cane kept my clients steady from vertigo, weakness, and knee replacements. It is essential to be able to move around to stay active, and the hurricane makes that with the hurricane’s mind. The HurryCane’HurryCane’sbase gives users a point of contact with the cane at all times.

More importantly, the cane maintains constant, full-capacity contact with the ground, providing full-time support at any angle. The SteadiGrip design includes three lightweights, very strong, supportive ‘feet’ that create maximum balance and support, designed explicitly with textured grooves that provide non-skid traction for all-teHurryCane’sities. The HurryCane’s HurryCane’s ergonomic design was inspired by the human hand’s unique physiology, giving unparalleled grip and comfort. In addition, with the HurryCane, users have support when needed; seconds later, it can be folded easily for storage or transport.

St. Ives Skin Renewing Lotion

We only have one skin, and taking care of it as we age is a priority. As we age, our skin’s collagen depletes, and it is challenging for our skin to build it back up again. With sun exposure, harsh outside elements, and diet changes, our skin is not as smooth and robust as it once was. I have always been a big believer in lotion. It not only keeps the skin in good condition, but it also makes us feel better. The power of touch is a beautiful thing. This revitalizing formula is a 100% natural moisturizer to smooth skin all day. Layer on once a day, and your skin will thank you.

Biofreeze Gel

Painful muscles, arthritis, and sprains are all part of getting older. But, when you are pain-free, you feel better and happier. I have tried all kinds of pain relief creams, and Biofreeze helps the most. Biofreeze is a topical analgesic that uses the cooling effect of menthol, a natural pain reliever, to soothe minor muscle and joint pain. In addition, it penetrates quickly, offering relief through the cold there. For this reason, it’s especially effective to declare that’s of a cursor in conjunction with hands-on health care such as chiropractic, massage, and physical therapies.

Pill Box

Having your medication in one place and being able to bring it anywhere gives you peace of mind. I have had to travel with medicines in plastic bags and bottles, all disorganized and frustrating. So, of course, when I found this beautiful small to medium-sized, easy-open 7-day travel pillbox, it made life so much easier. This convenient organizer is perfect for arranging medication seven days in advance! Time-of-day compartments make pill management simple & precise. It has a velcro closure to make it easier for anyone to open and close the binder, unlike the snap closures of most other pill cases. It also comes with a durable leather case that provides added privacy. Finally, there also are blank cards inside for emergency contact info.

Grab Bars

Everyone should have grab bars in their tub or where they need extra support.  A 16″ Suction Grip Assist Bar should be placed when there is a potential for a fall. Lock down the two suction cups of the grab bar on a smooth, dry surface for extra secure hold to a wall, and flip up the safety bar to remove it. Finally, ensure they are locked onto any surface to prevent an accident. Here is an article about transfer aids.

Shower Mat

Undoubtedly, a show mat is another safety item that will help prevent falls in the tub, and I have experienced many falls. My all-time favorite mat is the original gorilla grip non-slip shower mat. It is machine washable, mold-resistant, fits any tub or shower, and has a powerful grip.

  • Ultra Powerful Grip: featuring 324 suction cups to help secure the mat firmly in place on the smooth, clean bathtub or shower surfaces, this mat is easy to install and an excellent choice for any home, gym, or spa
  • Patented Design for Maximum Comfort: the mat features a unique hexagon design with a soft, textured topside that will keep you and your whole family comfortable; perfect for taking baths or long showers, even soft and gentle enough for grooming your furry friends.

Compassionate Caregiving

Bath Chair

I have tried and seen almost every kind of bath chair known to man. The best chair is a sliding transfer bench shower chair for the bathtub or shower. This sliding transfer bench will make transfers from wheelchairs or walkers to the bath or shower much more accessible. Whether you use it for yourself or to care for a loved one, it increases safety and minimizes back strain—position one side of the bench outside the shower and the other inside. Have the person sit on the seat, and you can easily slide them into the shower. It has a textured plastic seat and back to provide a non-slip surface; the nylon strap locks and holds the heart in a durable, lightweight aluminum frame, making it easy to lift and move.
