It may even be due to wrong postures in sitting, sleeping and living at workplace or home.
Your elders in the family may have used this in an elementary form by using warm water bags or hot towels at home. Why not give a surprise gift for older brother, sister or old parents in the form of a heat pad, which can help them in their hour of need. You may even buy one for your family use.

4. Morning Walker machine
Nowadays, for fear of Covid infections, we are unable to go out for their routine morning walk. This is particularly true for many senior adults in the family. Also, older people often find it difficult to go out, as there are risks of losing balance and falling. This is the case when you do not have a proper walking road and you have to walk by the side of a busy road. In these situations, you will find it handy to have few home fitness products which give similar effects as walking. One of them which we like immensely is a morning walker machine with its simple use, affordability and effectiveness.
A morning walker works by vibrating and sending energy impulses through your feet upwards throughout your entire body. this helps improve blood circulations and refreshes you. Typically 15-20 minutes a day on this is enough for a day’s walking. We suggest reading instructions on the enclosed manual as to how to use the same.
5. BP Monitors
In the past, high blood pressure was normally associated with elders. But no more. Today, many young people and not-so-old adults in India suffer from hypertension, which is a silent killer disease. If you are interested to learn more, read here our popoular post on high blood pressure as a lifestyle disease.
High blood pressure or hypertension is a lifestyle disease that many are blissfully unaware of. Often, people discover this malaise quite late at a doctor’s clinic. Suddenly, one day they find that they also have surprisingly high BP, when they may have few symptoms associated with it. Recent pandemic experience has also shown that people with high BP are prone to severe viral infections often leading to fatality.
Well, will it not be good to know if you have a normal and healthy blood pressure even before you hit the doctor’s clinic? This is quite possible and affordable too with a digital BP monitor for home use.
We have selected following BP monitors for you or as gift for old parents or middle age siblings based on brand reputation, ease of use, durability and user reviews and popularity. Check these out now!

7. Hearing Aid
Often, we have to speak at high volume to our older parents or relatives to make them hear. Older people do have hearing problems and they too have to stretch their vocal cords. This can be irritating at times, even though our intention is to be really heard by our older parents or grandparents. And they too would like to hear clearly so as to have a sense of belonging and involvement. People often ignore such minor hearing losses and take the same for granted as part of old age symptoms.
However, help is at hand with simple electronic devices which can aid in hearing loss. Mostly, these devices help in amplifying the voice so that older people can hear and this results in normal conversations and relationships at home. What is more, many of these are quite easy on pocket.
