  1. Smartphone –  Did you know many seniors are addicted to the new Pokemon Go craze? It is true, people of all ages are getting moving and collecting Pokemon all over! Of course, a cell phone is most important for getting ahold of anyone at any time and it can give you piece of mind, knowing that you can call your parent and ensure their safety no matter where you or they are.
  2. Computer – Computers are a great way to search for anything you can think of. It is also a great way to keep in contact through Skype, FaceTime or Video Call with Facebook. These are easy ways to connect with your parent and be sure they can connect with other family and friends through these convenient computer options. See each other face to face and know if they are doing well, or not.
  3. Fitness Tracker/Smart Watch – Some of the latest technology has a wearable fitness monitor small enough it easily fits on the wrist. These watches often monitor sleep patterns, activity levels. Even more advanced Smart Watches/Fitness Trackers have fall detection, can hook up to hearing aids, have a GPS and an integrated mobile phone. The best part about a watch design is there is no need to remember where you put it, it is on your wrist.
  4. GPS – For seniors that drive their own cars, GPS is great to have. Wrong turns happen quickly and with GPS you or another will almost always know what street  and coordinates – if worst comes to worst. Smartphones, Tables/iPads & many vehicles have GPS or you can also purchase one to place in the vehicle of your choice. GPS is also great to have when walking too.
  5. Tablet/iPad – Sometimes smartphone screens can be small, so if your parent is complaining about a small screen, consider a Tablet or iPad. They can pretty much do everything a smartphone can do, as long as you have service. For tablets with their own internet capabilities check out your phone providers, such as Verizon or T-mobile. They offer affordable plans you can put on your phone line for tablets that have internet services of their own and can get pretty much get every app a smartphone can.
