A very kind reader just discovered this cd player for her elderly mother:
It is mounted on the wall. Once the cd has been placed inside, the user only has to pull on the cord to operate it! The person who recommended this said her mother lives in an assisted-living facility. The cd is changed periodically by the staff. She wrote a large sign that reads, "To hear music, gently pull on the cord." Click on the link for more information and photographs of the unit.

I know I haven't shared any new products lately! In fact, I notice that the last post I wrote was almost a year ago! YIKES! However, if you're reading this post, you are probably in the same situation I am ... taking care of an elderly parent (or parents) ... and so you know how difficult it is to find a free moment!
The first new thing we've found is the Jay Easy Wheelchair Cushion. Before we found this, my father had recurring pressure-ulcer problems on his left side (his weak side). His body tends to lean to the left, putting more and more pressure on the same spot. This wheechair cushion has a gel insert and conforms to the shape of the body. It's been a fabulous find.
There are many different prices, I've noticed, so take your time and search.
