Best 2024 tech gifts and gadgets for seniors

For birthday or holiday gift giving, why not give the gift of tech to help the seniors in your life live a little easier? Whether you are thinking of their safety or their comfort, we have singled out some of the best tech gadgets they’ll love. Read on to find the best tech gifts for seniors.

1. Seniors will feel safer with a Ring video doorbell

Price $179

The Ring is a great tool for those seniors who have limited mobility, live alone, or simply want to screen their front door visitors much like we do on our phone calls these days. Feel safe and secure in your home with a way to determine if you want to answer the door or not once you know who is there. Also, it is very common for thieves to check to see if anyone is home by first ringing your doorbell. Even if you’re not at home, you can “answer” the doorbell via your smartphone and fool them away.

Below you can see a snapshot a Ring doorbell captured as a thief ran away with a delivery. Had the owner responded, this may not have happened. He may have left empty handed.

The Ring video doorbell device mounts by your front door. It can either be powered by batteries or you can hardwire it to your doorbell. You’ll get an alert when someone rings your doorbell or triggers the motion sensor.

You can answer using an iPad, smartphone, or laptop and carry on a two-way conversation with you being able to see your visitor. No need to get out of your seat, so it’s perfect for seniors or the infirm who have a hard time getting up. It even has infrared night vision so you can see who is at your door in the dark.

For even more convenience, add the Flexible Universal Tablet Stand to your iPad for a flexible viewing. While it looks like a creature from a science fiction movie, it’s surprisingly easy to use giving you almost unlimited adjustments. And it’s great for those confined to or who spend a lot of time in bed.

2. Item finders – We all need these, not just seniors!

Price $25-$32

While people may joke about “senior moments,” it’s no laughing matter when you misplace an item. Never worry about that again with one of these three highly rated item finders. While they each have unique characteristics, all will attach to an item – or can be slipped in the pocket of someone prone to wander off – so you can easily locate precious things. Keep track of all your valuables with one of these convenient and versatile trackers.

The Esky Item Finder has four fobs linked to a single remote to conveniently locate your keys, phone, TV remote control, wallet, or medications. Keep the remote close by to always know where your valuables are.

The Tile is the slimmest option, perfect to slide into your wallet or adhere to your iPad, phone or laptop. It also has the longest range – 400 feet!

3.     Get Reminder Rosie for failing memories

Price $200

When their memory starts to fail, the elderly need reminders for the important things. What better way than to be reminded in the voice of a loved one. With Reminder Rosie you can give gentle reminders about day to day self-care needs like brushing teeth or remembering to eat a meal recorded in your voice for your parent or spouse. Remind them to take medication or remember a doctor’s appointment. Get the whole family involved with grandchildren recording reminders about upcoming birthdays or family events. Caregivers can rest easy without the need to constantly nag, and because Reminder Rose is almost entirely voice-activated, there is no need for lots of button pushing or settings.

4.     Linner hearing aids are a game changer!

When hearing starts to go, some seniors can be resistant to wearing hearing aids. Either they are uncomfortable, irritating, or simply don’t work that well. Luckily, Linner hearing aids have changed all that. According to Bloomberg, they are a “game changer!”

Not your momma’s hearing aids, these hearing aids come in different sizes to fit different size ear canals, use an advanced chip that optimizes acoustics and background noise and deliver clear and intelligible sound even in the most challenging environments.
