The right products can help caregivers make those they are caring for safer and more comfortable. Here are our picks for products you might want to try if you’re caring for a loved one.

SAFETY

Ambrosia Scents
As we have seen in the past, burning candles and their hot wax can cause fire hazards, health issues and burns. Now, one new product line offers innovative, decorative, safer scent diffusers. Ambrosia Scents and sachets are a portable, wax-free, heat-free, mess-free way to fill any home with soft fragrances, soothing lighting and attractive decor. The unit’s whisper-soft, rechargeable fan blows over the scent filled sachets, sending a subtle, pleasant fragrance through the home without fear of fire or other potential health issues. ambrosia-scents.com.
