One-stop online shopping for older adults and those with disabilities or special needs has never been easier at Rehability! Your Optimal Living Store, http://www.rehabilitystores.com. With the holidays fast approaching, Rehability offers practical and functional gifts for those on your list with specials needs.

"There has never been a store offering such a range of products for people with special needs and they, their families and caregivers know it is not an easy task to find that special holiday gift. Rehabilitystores.com makes shopping for this group both easy and fun," says Meg Alonso, Rehability's Business Development Manager.

Rehability is on the campus of Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network, a nationally recognized leader of rehabilitation located in Allentown, Pa., that offers a continuum of care for those with physical and cognitive disabilities and specializes in assistive and rehabilitation technology.

Rehability's expanded product list includes everything from a talking microwave oven that allows those with limited eyesight to cook without fear of injury to dolls made with crutches and wheelchairs.

For the home office, there is a TV and computer screen enlarger, which doubles the size of the actual screen. Customers can purchase these items without leaving the comforts of their own home by visiting http://www.rehabilitystores.com on their home computer.

"We understand a majority of our customers may not be able to visit the store due to their disability or lack of proximity," says Alonso. "With this online option, our customers can do it all from their own computer no matter where they live."

Rehability, Good Shepherd's 3,300-square-foot walk-in and online store, debuted in 2006 with a lifestyle product line that includes products for recreation, wellness, communication, education, home and daily living, mobility, vision and children's merchandise.
