Turning lights on for disabled people?
Hi, Many thanks for letting me join. I wonder if anyone can please help. My eldery Dad's disabled & has to use a zimmer frame. He's now having problems reaching for his light switches, so I'm trying to think of ways to help him.
I remember hearing about a lamp that turns on & off when you whistle at it (he can whistle lol) but I can't find 1 online. Another option is a bulb that's clap activated, but he can't do that, but I'm wondering if that also means it reactes to a high pitched noise.
I would really appreciate any advise.
Many thanks ?
