As the body ages, seniors often find themselves facing daily difficulty with hearing, seeing and mobility. Curtis Edmonds of the nonprofit Disability Rights New Jersey recently gave a presentation at New Community Gardens Senior where he introduced residents to a number of senior-friendly devices—also called assisted technology—such as amplified telephones (large contrast buttons), television remote controls (also with larger buttons), single hand nail clippers, hair combs with extra-long handles (for those with arthritis), electronic canned good identifiers and more.
