small screws too small for senior to put back together

As a senior, I can hardly see the small screws. They stick to the Phillips screwdriver and won't come off the magnetized top. It was easy to take apart, but I can't put it together. What can I do?

Is this a good question?

Neither Dan nor I are young pups. Take a look at some of the magnification tools we use. The head magnifier and table lamp are very useful: https://www.ifixit.com/Store/Tools/all?f...

Yes it's a bummer getting old :-(

I use both a magnetized screw driver or dental wax to hold the screws to the screwdriver. You may want to get a desktop magnifier to help you see the tiny parts as well.
