Flameless Candles Welcome Soft Light Back Into A Senior Citizen’s Life Without Open Flames
Candlelight seems to invite warmth into a room, but, for more reasons than one, wax candles with an open flame are not a good idea for the home of a senior citizen, especially one on oxygen.
These battery operated candles are also perfect for a loved one who might have Alzheimer’s or dementia. These folks shouldn’t have flame candles for may reasons.
From a safety factor alone, flameless candles just make sense – for everyone!
I received one of the Luminara battery operated, remote controlled candles as a present when Mom was with on oxygen. She and I just loved the realistic look of this beautiful candle with the moving wick – it even puts off a light vanilla scent (mine is the white candle – each of the colors have their own scent).
And, with the built in timer, I had my flameless candle set to come on at 5 pm in the living room where Mom’s hospital bed was and turn off at 11 pm as she went to sleep.
The below Luminara flameless candles are even remote controlled! That means that your senior citizen friend can just push the remote control button and the candle is in lit or turned off. These remote control candles are great to put in high places where they couldn’t easily be turned on or off without the remote, like tall fireplace mantles.
Luminara Flameless Candles
In my humble opinion, these Luminara brand flameless candles are the most realistic due to their moving wicks. Flicker candlelight is always magical to me.

Here’s some more flameless candles. Although the wicks don’t move on these, the flicker light emulates that of a lit candle. I think flameless candles are the perfect stocking stuffer for a senior citizen.
