Talking Watches, Easier Keys, and At-Home Therapy for Aphasia

Key Holders Give Leverage, Make Keys Easier to Find

Small metal keys can be hard to grasp and turn. Solution? EZ Key Turners are enlarged, T-shaped key holders that fit over the top of a standard key. The turner provides a large grasping surface and increased leverage for turning the key. The plastic holders come in sets of two and make keys easy to find in a purse. Bright colors aid in key identification, too.

Price: $3.95 for a set of 2

Talking Watches Make Time-Telling Easier

Squinting at the tiny numbers on a watch face can be a challenge. These watches by Independent Living Aids have a talking function where a voice speaks the time at the touch of a button. Talking watches are easy to hear, with either a male or female speaking voice option. Many styles from casual to dressy are available for men or women, with large readable faces for easy viewing.
