In 2015, we at MaxiAids Products for Independent Living will continue to strive to help our amazing and loyal customers. We are here to serve all of your needs, and we truly appreciate your continued support. 

Below are ways we can help you stick to the New Years Resolutions listed above, and we hope that these tips make a positive difference both this year and beyond.

New Years Resolution: THINK POSITIVE 

Resolution Solution: Light Therapy. 

It's no secret that the winter months can lead to bouts of depression. One way to alleviate this is to make sure you surround yourself with plenty of light to combat the shorter days and longer nights. There are specialty lamps available that provide much-needed light therapy this time of year, and these lighting solutions can truly help improve your mood and keep you thinking positive in January 2015 and beyond.

New Years Resolution: BE ACTIVE

Resolution Solution: Add a little more walking and exercise to your daily living routine.

Adding a little more exercise to your daily routine may seem like a tough challenge, but there are ways you can keep track of your health and fitness throughout your day without having to really do anything different. This convenient talking pedometer can be thrown in your purse or bag and it will keep tabs on the amount of walking you do and the amount of Calories you burn. Getting positive 
reinforcement from this handy device can help spur on more desire for you to become more active.

When that happens, you can then pick up one of these extremely portable and affordable exercise peddlers that you can use whenever you have a few extra minutes to spare at home, on vacation or even at the office. You can also exercise more simply by grabbing one of these easy to use hand exercisers that can be used during lunch breaks, while watching TV or commuting to and from the office.

New Years Resolution: GET ORGANIZED

Resolution Solution: Use Calendars, Clocks and Medication Management Systems for Written and Audiovisual Daily Reminders

With the calendar flipping over to start a new year, now is the perfect time to get rid of the clutter on your desk and in your mind and give yourself a clean slate for 2015. Getting organized may seem like a daunting task, but once you take a few steps in the right direction you'll start to feel a whole lot better about managing important items in your daily life. 

MaxiAids offers amazing organization tools to really keep your household in order. Large print calendars like the 2015 Giant Appointment Calendar can really help you write down and remember important dates for events, meetings and doctor visits, while the Reminder Rosie Talking Alarm Clock with Personalized Voice Reminders enables you, your spouse or your caregiver to set up daily living reminders to help you manage your regular routine and take your medications at the right time.

Speaking of medication management, this is one area that every person should strive to stay organized with heading into the new year. It is extremely important to make sure you take all of your medications at the right time, and this Automatic Pill Dispenser does everything you need to ensure that your medicine is properly and securely delivered to you on time.

New Years Resolution: SHOW LOVE

Resolution Solution: Be supportive of others and thank those who help you for their kindness.

Now is the perfect time to reflect on the people who are closest to you, as well as the unsung heroes who have supported you throughout the past year. Keep a piece of paper and pen with you and whenever you think of someone, list their name on the paper. Write down two or three positive things that you would like to tell them, and when you see them again, share your sentiments with them. This is a wonderful way to start off 2015 on the right foot with all of the people in your life who love and care for you, and they will surely cherish your words of gratitude and encouragement.

So there you have it, 4 New Years Resolutions in Just 8 Words ... and a few helpful ways on how to keep them.

We wish everyone a Happy New Year, and we are proud to serve you and be there for you in 2015, whenever you need a little bit of help.

4 Helpful Tips to Make Holiday Food Traditions More Accessible

With the holiday season in full swing and just 10 days until Christmas, it's time to think about not just what holiday gifts will be under your tree but also what you will be putting on your dinner table. Some of the best (and most delicious) holiday traditions involve classic family recipes, from plentiful platters of food to delectable Christmas cookies that make anyone want to take home leftovers.

With that said, one thing that is often overlooked during these festive family gatherings is how to add a little bit more accessibility to the table in order to make sure that those who need some extra help can still enjoy the holiday food traditions they have come to cherish so fondly over the years.

4 Helpful Tips to Make Holiday Food Traditions More Accessible - MaxiAids Blog
Here are 4 Helpful Tips to Make Holiday Food Traditions More Accessible:

1. For plate settings, keep in mind those loved ones who have hand issues, low dexterity or arthritis. Arthritis of the hands has become a fairly common ailment among older adults, and when someone has trouble grasping or gripping objects with their hands, it can really take the enjoyment out of eating. When setting your dinner table for a holiday gathering, it's a good idea to write out a list of who is attending and see if they need a little extra assistance gripping onto their utensils. One cost-effective solution for dinner guests with hand issues are these soft, easy grip built-up arthritis handles that can be attached to any fork, knife or spoon to increase the gripping surface while adding comfort and stability to the dining experience. Something like this can be a real lifesaver for a parent or grandparent who has chronic hand pain, and it also goes a long way in showing your guest how much you truly care about them and their comfort level when they are eating in your home.

2. Organize your kitchen for food prep with accessibility in mind. It is inevitable that when you are hosting a big family gathering such as Hanukkah or Christmas dinner, you will be tasked with organizing your kitchen to make room for friends and relatives who are also fellow foodies and want to help you prepare the best meal possible. One thing that can happen with too many cooks in the kitchen are spills or slips when someone isn't paying full attention to the task at hand. In these situations, you can cut down on the accidents by sectioning off areas in your kitchen and creating specific food prep stations. When your cooking helpers arrive, kindly direct them to their designated area for that they will be doing, and make sure that anyone who is not helping to prepare the meal is entertained by others away from the kitchen. 

Also, to make sure there are no accidents in the kitchen, just like with the plate settings you should think about who will be helping you prepare the meal and how you can accommodate them. Chances are that grandma and grandpa will want to help keep family food traditions alive in some way, shape or form, and so you want to make sure your designated areas for them have the food preparation cooking helpers they might need to make sure they are safe in the kitchen. One invention that is sure to save a few fingers and avoid a trip to the hospital or urgent care center on Christmas is this EZ grip low vision cutting board, which is specially designed to grip your kitchen counter using four suction cups while the stainless steel corner plate / slicing guide holds the food in place. Solutions like this add accessibility to food prep and are sure to be appreciated by your sous chefs who could use the extra assistance while graciously helping you.

3. Stay cool and don't get burned by your oven. With all of those aforementioned kitchen helpers comes the chaos of recipes being recounted, side conversations overlapping each other, and other distractions. Because of this, it's important to take extra precautions to ensure that everyone stays safe, particularly around the oven. One misplaced hand when distracted can cause serious burns, and that is the last thing anyone should have to worry about when hosting a holiday gathering. That is why it is important to have the proper protections in place, and there are several solutions that can help promote oven safety in your kitchen. First, make sure you keep your oven mitts handy and close to your oven area. You may also find these Cool Touch Oven Rack Guards to be extremely helpful in preventing burns since they are designed to easily attach to most oven racks and snap in place to add another layer of protection when you need it most.

4. Make sure everyone can enjoy their coffee, tea or hot chocolate with dessert. After the big holiday dinner is over and everyone has had a chance to catch up and converse, it will then be time for dessert. You've worked so hard all night long, and all that's left is to unveil the cakes, pies and cookies, then serve the coffee, tea or hot chocolate. One thing to keep in mind, however, is that some of your guests might be a little tired and so they may not pay as much attention when gripping and drinking the hot beverage that is in front of them. This is where your last bit of ingenuity comes into play for the night, by doing your best to make sure that your guests don't slip up and spill their drinks. All you have to do is invest in something like this ergonomic clip-on handle that easily attaches to any standard coffee mug and adds a stronger, more comfortable and stable grip that all of your friends and family members will appreciate at the end of the evening.

We hope you enjoyed this 4 Helpful Tips to Make Holiday Food Traditions More Accessible, and all of us here at MaxiAids wish you a happy and healthy holiday season, as well as a Happy New Year!

5 Money Saving Tips for Holiday Shopping 2014

Believe it or not, the 2014 holiday season is approaching fast. On Twitter, Black Friday chatter has already commenced, and the hashtag #holidaysarecoming has been trending. Before the holiday season hits full stride, here are 5 tips you can use to make sure you are fully prepared to shop smart and save big.

5 Money Saving Tips for Holiday Shopping 2014 - MaxiAids

1. Budget accordingly for your immediate family. 

While it may be too late to set up a holiday account through your bank this year (where you choose to put aside a few dollars per month specifically for holiday shopping), it's never too late to take stock of your finances and create a holiday budget that fits your needs.

Of course, the bulk of your budget will be going to your immediate family - your spouse, your children, your parents and grandparents. For these important people in your life, you should list their names and think about what you typically spend on them (perhaps you even have last year's receipts or an Excel sheet with what you bought). Try to assign a reasonable dollar amount range and stick to it, but leave some wiggle room for impulse buys that you know you won't be able to resist. After all, we're only human and there will be at least one or two purchases that will just be too good to pass up. 

2. Let Secret Santa save you money when shopping for friends and extended family.

Where some people run into trouble financially after setting their holiday budget is when they feel they have to shop for extended family and friends because they want to reciprocate gifts they know they will be getting from them. One suggestion you can make to different groups of friends or relatives to save money is to have a Secret Santa gift exchange, where everyone is randomly assigned 1 person to shop for with a certain spending limit that is discussed in advance. Secret Santa is a great way for you and your friends to save money while still getting a nice gift, which is a win-win for everyone who participates.

3. Take advantage of early bird holiday sales before Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Some retailers will offer early bird holiday sales for those shoppers who prefer to get a head start on checking off their lists. In 2014, you can find great deals way before Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and doing some early holiday shopping while saving money is a great way to avoid piling up one huge bill that will need to be paid off in December or January.


4. Subscribe to Email Lists now to avoid missing out on special holiday offers and huge savings.


Even if you prefer not to shop early this holiday season, one thing you should do in advance is subscribe to email lists now so that you can get in on the biggest savings and deepest discounts of the year.


5. Like / Follow your favorite stores and brands on social media including Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.


In 2014, social media is a crucial way to shop smart and save big during the holidays. Retailers are leveraging their resources and using Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and other social media platforms to promote their best deals throughout the holiday season. Also, the advantage of social media is that you can see what your favorite brands are up to and stay up to date on new products, holiday gift ideas you may not have thought of for your loved ones, and huge savings that might be exclusive to those platforms.


We hope you enjoyed these 5 money saving tips for the 2014 holiday shopping season. Happy deal hunting!

Back to School Illnesses and Beyond: Nebulizers for Asthma, Allergies and Cough and Cold Treatments

Now that the calendar has flipped over to September and the beginning of the school year is upon us, it is important to keep in mind that along with back to school comes back to school illnesses, as well as the triggering of potentially severe seasonal allergies. According to WebMD, the average American child catches between six and 10 colds per year. This is because when youth students are gathered together in schools, their immune systems simply cannot fend off all of the germs that surround them. Parents can only do so much to help prevent their children from getting a common cold, but even if your child is fully immunized and washes his or her hands throughout the school day, the chances are that at some point you will be calling your pediatrician to make an appointment. 

For students who have asthma, suffer from seasonal allergies that kick up during the fall season or wind up getting sick with a cough and cold when they go back to school, the use of nebulizers to administer medication has become an important and effective treatment. For nebulizer medication and dosage, please consult your doctor.

You may be asking yourself, “What is a nebulizer and what are its benefits?” KidsHealth.org explains, “A nebulizer is an electrically powered machine that turns liquid medication into a mist so that it can be breathed directly into the lungs through a face mask or mouthpiece.” Meanwhile, the benefits to using a nebulizer for treatment include effective medication delivery directly to the respiratory tract, ease of use (just breathe normally as the medication flows continuously), and a lower risk of short-term side effects than when taking the same medicine orally. They can also be used for prevention.

For a child with a cough or cold that escalates into bronchitis or another severe respiratory illness, a nebulizer is ideal because the child doesn’t have to do anything except stay in the same place for 5 to 10 minutes and breathe while the full dose of medication passes through.  
Beagle Pediatric Nebulizer available at MaxiAids.com

At MaxiAids.com, we offer quality nebulizers that can help parents and their children should a back to school cold take hold. We have specially designed child-friendly pediatric nebulizers such as the beagle shown above, portable nebulizers, and more. While you are there, you can check out all of our other products for independent living as we continuously strive to offer items you can use and rely on when you need it most.

While exhibiting at CSUN 2014 this past week in San Diego, MaxiAids was happy to have music legend Stevie Wonder stop by to check out the latest innovations available to help blind and visually impaired individuals live and work more independently.

Wonder is no stranger to MaxiAids Products for Independent Living, its staff and its products, having been a regular customer for many years, and having visited the company’s Farmingdale showroom on a number of occasions.

During this year’s CSUN 2014: The 29th Annual International Technology & Persons with Disabilities Conference, held at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel in San Diego, CA, Wonder stopped by MaxiAids’ booth and checked into a range of talking products. He was particularly interested in a Talking Color Detector which – when held up against an object’s surface – is able to recognize and announce its color.

MaxiAids in Allrecipes Magazine Feature on Kitchen and Cooking Products for the Blind and Low Vision Chef

MaxiAids Products for Independent Living, supplier of items for the blind, low vision, deaf, hard of hearing and seniors is proud to have been part of a recent article highlighting cooking tools that enable legally blind people to work more easily, safely and efficiently in the kitchen.

The article, which appears in the February/March 2014 issue of allrecipes magazine, published by the world’s largest online food community allrecipes.com, presents a number of kitchen helpers that writer Tammy Ruggles, a self-described ‘legally blind foodie’, says she couldn’t do without.

MaxiAids, which contributed product for the feature, was mentioned as a source where the blind and low vision can find these helpful items that were featured in the piece:

1. Auto-Measure Spice Carousel: Contains canisters that dispense pre-measured amounts of a spice with each turn of a dial, eliminating the need for hand measuring by sight.

2. High-Contrast Cutting Board: For safer, easier cutting by low vision cooks. It is white on one side for cutting darker colored foods (ex. beets and green peppers) and black on the other side for cutting lighter foods (ex. onions and mushrooms).

3. Funnel: This specially designed funnel has a trigger that helps control the flow of liquids for neat, accurate pouring and less spills.

4. Audible Liquid Level Indicator: A small electronic device that, when hung on the rim of a glass, senses and alerts with a beep sound when the liquid being poured is near the top of the glass. It enables the blind and visually impaired to pour securely without concern for over-pouring.

5. Big Number Tactile Timer with Loud Ring: Whether you’re timing when to flip meat on the grill or cook time for pasta, this low vision cooking timer has easy to read big numbers that are also tactile for touch reading. It has a built-in stand for secure footing on a counter or table and a loud ring you won’t miss.

No matter what your cooking needs involve – making favorite recipes for daily family meals, baking scrumptious desserts or even hosting an elegant dinner – these products can make the time you spend in the kitchen safer, easier and more enjoyable.

To purchase or get more information about the above items or countless other handy cooking helpers visit www.MaxiAids.com or call MaxiAids at 1-800-522-6294 and speak to one of our knowledgeable, experienced customer service associates.
