Flexibility, stretching, balancing, weak back, sore knees and shoulders are among the common problems experienced by seniors. If you help or live with them long enough, you’ll notice that these problems are a serious concern for them and really affect their daily life. If you are looking for some cool cleaning gadgets for seniors, look at any cordless tub and tile scrubber as there is are few interesting models on the market.
Some models are electrical, cordless, attachment for drill (which I think are too heavy to be practical for an elderly), some are short or tall, and other will extend, you catch the idea…
The Homitt electric spin scrubber 360 cordless tub tile scrubber offers multiple good design points which can be an ideal choice for seniors.
Let’s take a look at some of these points.
Portable cordless design
For senior gifts ideas, I would personally recommend a cordless type of scrubber. Cordless are a great choice because you don’t have to plug and unplug the cable. You therefore eliminate the risk of fall for tripping over a wire, which is a concern for seniors.
The bathroom is a perfect example of tripping hazards as they are usual small and where there is several items onto which you can fall and hurt yourself, such as the counter of the vanity, faucets, toilets, bathtub, shower glass, etc…..
This is why a model such as the Homitt electric spin scrubber 360 is a good gift idea. The only wire you have is for recharging its battery, which you disconnect when using it.
Waterproof mean safety for seniors
We all know that electricity and water do not mix well together. Now imagine a senior with limited capacity and slow reflexes working with an electric tool around water. Not a pretty picture!
These cordless tile floor cleaner scrubber are designed to work in wet area such as bathrooms. It doesn’t mean that you can take your bath with it, it simply means that they’ll still work fine if splashed with water or used in an area where there is a small amount of water. Bear in mind that they are not designed to be fully immersed under water.
Like any cleaning tools, you will require water, soap or degreaser to get the job done. When cleaning the bathroom, you will
still need to wet the floor as you normally do during your regular cleaning. The Homitt electric spin scrubber 360, with is waterproof design, will help the elderly to clean around hard to reach areas such as the back of the toilet, the far side and the bottom of the bathtub, the high part and the bottom of a shower and hard to reach corners.
Brush head for all their needs
Most scrubber come with 3 heads, but the Homitt spin scrubber
comes with 4 interchangeable heads. This means you really have a brush for every situations; a head for floor, bathtub, corners, sink, soap dispenser, grout, edges, etc…
The bristles are manufactured with a semi hard and soft stiffness to remove the dirt in an easy fashion without scratching the surfaces. Also, the Homitt 360 scrubber is designed to bend where the scrubber head is located. It can be adjusted the way you like in order to do the job with ease.
Protect their back and knees
I still remember when my mother used to live with us. There was on instance where she ended up flat on her back on the floor for a period of 2 hours since she was no longer able to get up. It was a good thing I wasn’t gone for the week-end. This type of scenario happens more often than we think.
They tend not to have any problem bending their back and knees, however, they often do not have the strength to raise their upper body back up. Therefore, they get stuck bend in half or sitting on the floor. This is why these cordless tub and tile scrubber are such cool cleaning gadgets for seniors, since it prevents them from bending while doing their cleaning.
The Homitt electric 360 tub tile scrubber also has an extendable handle that can be set to the proper height allowing for comfortable working positions. Due to the various heads and the bendable scrubber section, the Homit 360 is an ideal tool for seniors, or any members of the family, to use for hard to reach areas.
Is the Homitt Scrubber design for seniors? Perhaps
Helping the elderly doesn’t mean just giving them money or a quick phone call. A good way is to teach them how to use the best tools available for them. Please remember that most of them like to keep their daily routine without asking for help as it allows them to remain independent.
Today, you can find all kinds of tools that can make it easier for seniors or mobility impaired persons to accomplish their daily tasks. These types of scrubbers can be a good senior gifts ideas as it helps them preserve their dignity a little while longer. Yes, it might require some teaching in the beginning, but in the long term, it will be worth it.
