Often, seniors value time with familes more than a physical gift. In this light, technology can truly offer many ways to connect the younger generations with senior grandparents.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 24, 2009
With the holiday season upon us, the Senior Care Podcast by LivHOME has released Episode 17 -- Holiday Gifts That Connect.
In this episode, Steve Barlam, MSW, LCSW, CMC and Chief Professional Officer of LivHOME, presents a number of holiday gift ideas that focus on things family members can do rather than items that must be purchased.
Technology-enabling gifts Steve discusses include:
- setting up a home computer for easier viewing and use,
- combining multiple TV remotes into a single unit,
- programming telephone speed dials to make calling simpler, and
- helping seniors with their own online gift shopping.
Such gifts can both improve a senior’s quality of life and bring families closer together during the holidays.
"Often, seniors value time with families more than a physical gift. In this light, technology can truly offer many ways to connect the younger generations with senior grandparents," Barlam says.
The episode can be found at the podcast's homepage (http://www.livhome.com/podcast). Listeners can subscribe via RSS feed, email or through the iTunes store. Episode 17 -- Holiday Gifts that Connect has a runtime of 15 minutes, 50 seconds.
