TOWNSEND, TENNESSEE is one of my favorite spots in the Smokies, and this 1 BR APARTMENT is right on the Little River. It has a king bed, wifi, and plenty of amenities. Like most AirBnB properties, the nightly rate varies according to the time of year, but I found this spot at $87 a night, plus cleaning fee, service fee, and taxes.

$78.95 PATRICIA ALTSCHUL 3-PC FULL/QUEEN COVERLET SET - $29.59. 2 color choices; $7.50 shipping.

This GUEST SUITE in MOBILE, ALABAMA offers a queen bed and a sleeper sofa. It currently rents for $65 a night, but what makes this an even better deal is the low cleaning and service fees. The owner is a superhost, which means they’ve hosted many guests and have positive feedback. (This is an upstairs room. Fees vary on AirBnB and some are absolutely outrageous.) 

$3 WESTCOTT BLUE CLOUD 7" SCISSORS - $1.50. In-store or curbside pickup where in stock.

Here's a 1 BR APARTMENT in FAIRHOPE, ALABAMA which currently rents for $65 a night. It sleeps 3 - a queen bed and full-size futon - and is a 12-minute walk to downtown. (NOTE: AirBnB prices don't include taxes, cleaning fee, and service fee. All these charges are in addition to the base amount.)

COMPLETE SINGLE VISION PRESCRIPTION EYEGLASSES - as low as $6.95. My husband has been using Zenni Optical for years & their prices are unbeatable. He ordered one pair of single visions (even though he needs a lens for reading) for watching TV because he could never find a comfortable position to watch through his transition lenses. We paid $6.95 for the frame and lenses, plus a case, a scratch-resistant coating on the lenses, and a cleaning cloth. Shipping was $4.95 (whether we'd ordered 1 pair or a dozen). You'll need your prescription. Their website shows you exactly how to measure and order, plus there's a phone number to call if you need more help. There's even a place to upload your photo and "try on" different frames to see how you'll look.

I was looking at more ideas for people with dementia or disabilities that affect the use of their hands. One thing I came across was Velcro-closing shirts & blouses – pajamas & robes, too. Instead of buttons on the sleeves or down the front, they have Velcro. A great idea, but hardly worth the $60-$80 they want for these. Instead of switching to all pullovers, take the buttons off the shirts or blouses & replace them with Velcro dots or strips. That’ll cost you a few minutes’ time & about $3 for the Velcro & another $4 for a bottle of something like Aleene’s fabric glue. The dots are adhesive, but that won’t hold on fabric, so stick them on with the glue & allow them plenty of time to dry in place. Try it one shirt & see how you like it before putting Velcro on more items. You might also want to consider looking for shirts, etc. that snap or zip rather than button.

Silverts.com is a specialty store with clothing made for people who have trouble dressing themselves or need help getting dressed. They have clothing & accessories for men & women. The pic I posted is of a clearance-priced assisted dressing style. So pretty. The trick is that it sort of laps over in the back & can be snapped into place. Makes it so much easier on the person being helped to dress & on the caregiver.

This has to be the simplest TV REMOTE I’ve ever seen. It’s almost impossible to mess anything up! It only has buttons for on/off, mute, channels, & volume. At $39.95, it’s a great gift for anyone who’s struggling with memory problems or just tired of having to fiddle with all the extra buttons on a standard remote. I also found some new & used ones of this same brand & style on eBay for considerably less.

DIGITAL TIME/DATE/DAY OF THE WEEK CLOCK - $38 w/FREE SHIPPING. This is regular price, but too nice an item not to mention. Never wonder about the date or day of the week! Great gift for anyone, especially if they're struggling with memory issues.

This PHOTO PHONE is a wonderful gift for anyone with memory problems. A cordless phone isn’t a good idea because they will likely misplace it. Likewise with a cell phone. A corded phone stays put, & this one lets you input 6 phone numbers so that you only have to press the photo of the person on that button to make the call. No remembering which button is who. No dialing. At $49.99, it has a lot of great features, including volume control that lets you use it with a hearing aid or crank up the volume without one. There’s even a flashing light to indicate incoming calls.
