Ideal for arthritis sufferers. (Item No. 25005 -- $9.95) (Note: Playing cards with extra large numbers are available separately; Item No. 25006 -- $3)
 -- Telestick -- Innovative portable reaching aid that attaches to lightweight items so that they can be retrieved quickly. Twenty-seven inches in length and collapses to the size of a pen to take anywhere. (Item No. 25019 -- $19.99)
 "These represent the most exciting new products we've seen this year," said Jeffrey Gornstein, founder and president of Comfort House. Although his company evaluates dozens of new products each month, only a small number meet the criteria for publication in the firm's "senior- friendly" mail order catalog that is distributed nationwide.
 Comfort House was honored last month with the 1993 National Mature Media Award, sponsored by the National Association of Area Agencies On Aging, the second time in as many years the firm has been recognized for the catalog it produces for older adults.
 All products listed are available by phone or mail. Visa/MasterCard accepted. $4.95 shipping and handling charge for delivery anywhere in the continental United States. A free catalog is available by writing to Comfort House, 189 Frelinghuysen Ave., Department Y, Newark, N.J., 07114-1595, 800-359-7701, ext. 75.
