“Father, Dad, Papa, no matter what you call them they influence our lives and they are the person we look up to.” We can’t agree more with author Catherine Pulsifer who has aptly summed up the role fathers play in our lives.
Indeed, fathers play an instrumental role and ironically the sacrifice they make towards their family and children is often less celebrated. Having said that, Father’s Day presents the perfect opportunity to show gratitude and offer gift(s) to the person who is no less than a superhero.
In this article, we present some out-of-the-box gift ideas which can help you track vital parameters of your father’s health, ensuring his fitness and well-being. Let’s get started.
This is one gift that can help you monitor crucial elements of your father’s health, including his heart rate, pulse rate, blood pressure, body mass index, oxygen saturation, and temperature, among others. Keeping track of these vital parameters helps you and your father to better take care of the latter’s health.
Also, in case you find that certain elements are not up to the mark, you can devise strategies to get things back on track. Wearable devices come in various forms, including wrist bands, watches, bracelets, smart clothing and headsets, smart sensor among others.
Note that in the past few years, the utility of these devices in healthcare has propelled their demand and the Indian wearable market registered a whopping 168.3% on-year growth in 2019. By gifting this device to your father, you can help him stay fit and keep lifestyle diseases at bay.
Given the prevailing situation and even otherwise, health apps have gained significant traction in the past few years. Streamlining communication between patients and medical professionals, they allow people to find direct information on their health conditions and provide step-by-step guidance on treating them in the most effective manner.
You can download any such app on your father’s smartphone and feed in the required details to help him stay fit and fine. Also, most health apps available today offer instant reminders regarding medication and send SOS in case medical help is required.
With these apps, not only can you ensure the well-being of your father but also be by his side, when required.
This is another gift that can make a huge difference and ensure that funds are not a paucity in receiving the best treatment in the event of a medical emergency. You can buy a health insurance plan for your father and pay the premiums on his behalf. Paying premiums on behalf of your father can also help you lower your tax liability.
There are many health insurance plans available in the market for the elderly, devised specifically for their needs. You can choose the one that best fits the needs of your father. Also, many health plans offer innovative add-ons, bringing extra benefits on the table.
For example, the BAGIC GOQii Co-pay Option launched by Bajaj Allianz General Insurance in collaboration with GOQii, a smart-tech-enabled preventive healthcare platform, rewards customers for adopting a healthy lifestyle in the form of co-pay deduction.
The add-on is an encouragement to adopt healthy habits to maximise gains from the health insurance plan. Also, by gifting your father a health plan, you can protect his savings and funds from taking a hit in the face of a medical contingency.
As evident, the gifts-mentioned above will not only reflect your love and care for your father but also help him lead a healthy life. So, make this Father’s Day all the more special and memorable. All the best!
