perfect for my elderly disabled father,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Philips Shaver Series 3000 with Lift and Cut Blades PT720/17 (Personal Care)
My dad has been seriously ill and was unable to stand to shave for any length of time. Saddened by his determination to continue, but lack of strength I searched for something that would help him out. He has weak hands/grip and the shape of this model means he can hold it comfortably and continue to do this one simple thing for himself. Rechargeable is a bonus as he doesn't need to be in the bathroom... just the comfort of his own armchair. A perfect product for his situation and at a very good price... He has to have alot of help now with day to day care, but with this little gadget, at least he can do his own personal grooming! One of the best things I could have bought him!

Dr. H. Bernard-Smith says:
As a grandfather who has almost recovered from a major stroke four years ago, but who still finds some things difficult (like tap dancing, arm wrestling, and bungee jumping), please allow me to thank you for being so considerate to your own father. There aren't many of you about, and I'd be proud to call you mine. This won't contribute anything to the discussion, I know, but God bless you anyway.

Aahhhh, that is so lovely of you to say. I wish you a speedy full recovery to get those dancing shoes on again! Thank you for your lovely comment.

Hello R Richards, I hope everything is ok with your dad. I love my elderly parents. Lovely comment from Dr Smith too - keep feeling better.

Thanks, i hope it will help like it did for my dad, bless him.. He managed to hang on independently for two years with it, so it turned out to be one of the best things i could have helped him with.xx he has to have assistance with it now, but its still going strong...

Thanks. I'm looking for a razor for my elderly father too. He has moderate dementia & has started looking rather whiskery lately. He seems to have forgotten how to shave & doesn't think important any more. We're hoping an electric shaver will help. Don't think this ones got a trimmer for moustache though.

Thanks for your comments, i have to say it still works very well with reasonably regular use, so i can still recommend it two years later...
I don't think it does moustache trims though. Hope your dad finds it easy to use and regains the self-worth of personal grooming once more.. Best wishes.
