Why Do Seniors Need a Flashlight

A flashlight is an important tool in disaster preparedness for the elderly. Seniors need a flashlight mainly because they tend to have poor eyesight. Research has indicated a correlation between age and poor eyesight. As people grow old, their eyesight becomes poor. The senior citizens also need a flashlight for self-defense purposes. When burglars or thieves break into your home, they are likely to switch off the lighting system, which would make it difficult for a senior citizen to move into safety. With a flashlight, it makes it easy for senior citizens who might be at home to move into safety and avoid being harmed.Next
