Parkinson's Friendly Furniture, Chairs for Parkinson's

 

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that primarily affects movement. It also impacts various other bodily functions and aspects of health. When selecting a gift, it's important to consider the individual's specific symptoms and preferences. As Parkinson's disease affects each person differently. Personalized and thoughtful gifts that show an understanding of their condition are meaningful. Here are four gift ideas to consider for someone living with Parkinson’s.

Adaptive Clothing

Clothing companies like the Able Label provide styles that ease the struggle of dressing. Offering easy-to-put-on and remove clothing. Their adaptive designs feature VELCRO® fastenings and simple layouts. This supports easier dressing and comfort throughout the day and night. Look for clothes with magnetic buttons, shirts, or Velcro closures for easy dressing.

Entertainment and Mental Stimulation

When selecting entertainment and mental stimulation activities for individuals with PD, consider their individual interests. Gifts like puzzles and brain games make excellent choices. Games such as Charades can stimulate cognitive skills and improve communication. Charades also promotes social interaction, helping to combat social isolation.

Specialized Tools

There are many specialized tools available today. People with PD have options in hearing aids to adaptive kitchen openers, that simplify daily tasks. For example, the Fiber Grasp is a wearable assistive device. This device guides the user’s hand into a secure and natural grasp around objects. It can help with activities like eating, writing, talking on the phone, drinking, and even playing sports. This device helps individuals with tremors or mobility issues regain their independence. Allows for the performance of everyday tasks with greater ease.

Building Comfortable Home Environments

Creating a safe and comfortable home environment is essential for individuals with Parkinson’s and their caregivers. Parkinson’s-friendly furniture in the dining room can restore a sense of normalcy to mealtime routines. Chairs with swivel-locking seats and lockable casters, such as the T2 Swivel 22” CC5, allow for easy entry and exit and seamless movement up to and away from the dining table. These adjustments enhance safety. They prevent bumping into the table, and make it easier for caregivers to assist the seated person. Simplifying access to the dining table can help Parkinson’s patients increase their daily water and food intake. Improving well-being for all involved.
