In this article I look at some of the better gifts for disabled people and the elderly. It is the age old question; what on earth do I buy for my elderly parents or relative. It can be an incredibly difficult task buying Christmas presents for the elderly or disabled, this is especially true if you are buying some sort of mobility aid. The last thing you want to do is buy something that will cause offense. Imagine getting a box of incontinence pads for your birthday or as a Christmas present.

The truth is however that there a number of mobility aids that make great presents. I’ve been in contact with each of these products in my job so I know they are good quality and will be appreciated by your elderly or disabled friend or relative.

What is the ideal Christmas present for the elderly or disabled?
