Are There Senior Citizens in Your Life?

Since beginning to deliver Meals on Wheels to seniors last July, I have noticed that MANY of them have inoperable doorbells. Because a high percentage of them also have some difficulties with hearing, vision, and/or mobility they are not always aware when someone is at their door. Those visitors who are at the door cannot tell whether someone is home…and just arriving slowly….or whether they are not at home.

 

Because I call them before leaving I can tell how many times they might have missed out on someone at the door. Sooo, here’s a thought for those of you with elderly relatives or neighbors. Check their doorbells and make sure they are both working and loud. If they are not, consider buying a new wireless doorbell for them.

 

After T got one for my mom in Florida, I decided to get one for myself (my doorbell has been erratic for years). Wow! What a difference! And it’s so easy to install!!

 

This part plugs in to any outlet you choose and can be moved at any time:

It has a very loud chime…with choices for 1 bell, a double bell, or a Westminster chime. It is totally wireless.

The actual doorbell attaches either with double-sided tape or screws, both of which are included.

I bought 2 of these for 2 of the Meals on Wheels folks…partly for them and partly for all those who deliver. They work so well, and the seniors were very happy for the gift (they actually wanted to pay for them…but my idea, my money). I found my on Amazon…should cost less than $20:))

 

Check out the seniors in your lives…see if these wireless doorbells might be a tiny act of kindness for them:))

 

Happy Parenting!
