I agree that organization is must for every household, but it might just be a bit difficult for the elderly. While you can always employ someone to help your elderly parents, there are some couples who prefer living alone. If your parents are one of these people, the easiest thing that you can do is to buy them equipment to make cleaning and organizing much easier. There is no need to buy extravagant things however, as something as simple as an over the kitchen shelf could help them a lot with keeping an organized home. I recently purchased one for my elderly mother, and here are some reasons why I did so.
MAKES IT EASIER TO FIND THINGS
You know how elderly people are. I saw this show at the TV once, where an old man kept looking for his eyeglasses. Turned out that they were on his head all along, but he just couldn’t remember placing it there. An over the sink shelf’s purpose is to hold several stuffs, such as bottles of soaps, sponges ansd scrubbers. There are even some models which can hold rolls of paper towels, knives and shopping boards to make things even more organized. By using this, your mom or dad can easily find what they need.
My mom loves pretty things, which why she was so happy when I gave her the shelf. It got this scrolly designs on the sides, and it also has these little cabinets as supports. Aside from sink organization, these shelves can also turn your kitchen into something more appealing.
HELPING WITHOUT BEING TOO OBVIOUS
I don’t know about you, but I always have this warm feeling when I give something to my mom. Only problem is, she doesn’t want me to give her stuffs saying that she can fend for herself. By giving her something simple and affordable, I get to give her gifts without making it too obvious that I am spending money on her.
