Reading & Writing Aids

Reading aids and writing aids are designed simply to help make the task of reading and writing easier. If holding a book up for long periods of time causes you strain, we have a variety of aids for reading available including book stands to help keep your book open to a specific page. Or, these can just give you a place to rest your book while you read. Not only this, but if you or your loved one struggles to read smaller texts, we also offer a variety of magnifying glasses and magnifiers to help your eyes focus on smaller print. If you're finding it increasingly difficult to hold a pen or are living with arthritis in your hands, our writing aids will help you to write with more ease. Other living aids may also help make small but important improvements to your life.
