One of the most important ways to outfit a home is with “medicine chest” essentials. While many of us think of first aid supplies and a thermometer as must-haves when there are small children in the house, these daily living aids are vital at every age, particularly for seniors. Putting together a shopping list is not as daunting as you might think, but it pays to review all care needs to be comprehensive. As long as one of the first questions the nurse at the doctor’s office asks when you call is, “Is there a fever?” you need a thermometer—and one with numbers that are easy to read. Bandages and tape, antibiotic ointment and hand sanitizer gels are also givens. But there are many other products that every senior’s home should have within reach so that a minor mishap doesn’t ever turn into a frantic trip to the drugstore. Dental supplies, including toothpaste for sensitive teeth and oral swabs, will prevent dental problems that could lead to an inability to chew properly and, ultimately, malnourishment. Batteries for hearing aids as well as other daily-use devices are “little things” that, if forgotten, can add up to big problems. Cold compresses and moist heat packs as well as a safe heating pad can help ease chronic pain.
