2019 Valentines Gifts for Disabled

Valentine's gifts for disabled. What gifts are you planning to get for your disabled on 14th February, 2019 Valentines day. We go through some suggestions fronted by caregiving blog.

Post Update:

For the Valentines season, though I had planned to buy so much for some of my patients, I ended up only buying some drinking cups for my Parkinson’s Disease patients and they were jolly happy with the cups since they can now drink with ease without having to think of the tremors

What will your get your disabled loved one this Valentines?

Today is Thursday 31st January, the last day of the first month of year 2019. We are from tomorrow entering February, the love month where cupid finds the best place to strike his arrow. And I am not sure where it will strike next. Anyway far from that, I am thinking of the best gifts for my disabled patients at the hospice this Valentines.

So I have been researching alot on this topic and so far, I have stumbled over different Valentines gift ideas for this special class of people. From one caregiving blog hosiped, I found the following gift ideas for disabled patients:

1.Parkinson’s spoons for those with hand tremors

Say that you are taking care of people with hand tremors and eating or even drinking is proving to be quite a task for them. You need not worry because they can go ahead and use the Lifware level spoon for this. There is also the gyenno which is equally a good fit, good grips and bunmo spoons are weighted and not as effective but great when you are on a low budget.

2. Weighted garments

Weighted blankets and compression vests have been shown to be great in reducing anxiety as well as solving insomnia for Parkinson’s patients as well as those with autism, ADHD and sensory processing disorder.

What they do is that they give the patient a hug like feeling from the excess pressure of the blankets on the body. It is also a great gift when you buy someone a blanket considering that we are moving to a cold season.

3. Gift cards on Amazon

Disabled people are sometimes hard to understand and so you might be at a loss wondering what to get them. I understand you. I also face the same problem though I work with disabled every day of the week. So, do not worry because with an Amazon gift card, they are able to buy anything that they can think off from the giant amazon online stores.
