Home Maintenance

+NEEDS, ISSUES, AND RISKS
With aging, seniors often find it difficult to execute regular home maintenance activities or pursue their hobbies like sewing, embroidery, crafts, knitting or gardening. The primary issues that most seniors face include limited mobility in hands & fingers due to Arthritis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Dupuytren's Contracture; chronic pain or stiffness in wrist or elbow joints; muscle weakness, and fragility of bones due to Muscular Atrophy and Osteoporosis respectively. Neurological disorders like Parkinson's, Ataxia, Alzheimer's may result in weak gripping ability and poor motor control in hands making activities like stitching or knitting difficult. Low eyesight due to Myopia or Hypermetropia or blurred vision owing to the development of Cataract, glaucoma, etc. also makes simple activities like threading the needle difficult.
+WHAT CAN BE DONE?
Timely treatment of these issues can help the seniors to live better with a smile. Certain daily living aids and home maintenance products have been crafted particularly for helping the elderly to enjoy their hobbies with minimum hindrance. The Easy-Threading Needle, Magic Needle and Pre-threaded needle kit developed by Pony Needles are very helpful for this purpose. Comfort grip scissors and easy thread nipper replace the need of heavy and strainful normal scissors for cutting paper or fabric, clipping nails or snipping yarn ends, plant stems etc. The ergonomically designed add-on handles for home and garden tools are perfect for those who enjoy gardening.
