Where The Needs Of Others Come First · Available 24x7 For Emergencies
Tiny print on prescription bottles, unreadable text on a spice jar, or even plastic tubes bearing two very different substances that happen to look alike are all potential problems for an aging relative with failing eyesight. Of course, substituting cinnamon for ground cloves or burn ointment for toothpaste may end up being just a funny story to tell the grandkids, but taking the wrong medication can have serious consequences. For a visually impaired senior, in-home care with a personal attendant might seem the only option. That’s why the Voxcom III Identification System is such a cool tool.
The system comes with a recording and playback device and 50 recordable cards. Simply insert one of the cards in the machine, press a button, and record a 10-second message describing the item. Attach the card to a bottle or package using plastic ties, rubber bands, magnets, or even Velcro. When your elderly relative needs to know what’s inside, she only has to insert the card into the reader to hear a playback of your message. The cards are durable and re-recordable, and can be used in the kitchen, the bathroom, or anywhere your loved one needs help “reading” labels.
For the independent senior, in-home care can take many forms. While nothing can replace an in-home personal attendant, the Voxcom III System is a valuable tool for maintaining your loved one’s independence and quality of life.
