Aids To Daily Living
There are aids designed to ensure your daily life is safer and easier for you, all while allowing you to maintain your independence. Concern over whether or not they will be able to carry on living in their own home is usually one of the first things we hear from our customers. This is often complicated by the change in mobility and needs that comes with aging.
Thankfully, there are a wide variety of products that are made specifically for these circumstances, and we can help you find exactly what you need in order to make your daily routine easier.
The bathroom, and more specifically the bathtub, is one of the most common areas of difficulty. Often it can be difficult to get in and out of the tub, or people may experience issues with balance and stability while showering. The toilet can also cause problems, with a low seat causing difficulties due to a lack of strength or mobility. All too often people use their towel rack to steady themselves, however they aren’t designed to hold that weight and can become detached from the wall. As an alternative, we offer grab bars that can be secured firmly to the wall, providing support as you get in and out of the shower. For those who prefer to bathe, there are also seats for the bathtub that you can use instead of standing. Finally, we offer elevated toilet seats that can make standing up and sitting down much easier.
Bedroom and Lounge
Throughout both the bedroom and living room areas, there are a number of problems that can arise when it comes to mobility and movement. Particularly when it comes to getting out of bed in the mornings, as well as moving from the couch. We offer a range of items such as bed rails and floor-to-ceiling poles that can help combat these issues.
Likewise, as mobility diminishes, cooking and prepping meals can go from a cherished activity to a difficult and uncomfortable chore. There are a number of great products out there that can help you rediscover the love of cooking and maintain that valuable sense of independence. This includes cutting boards with attached knives, utensils with larger handles, and products to help you reach the dials on the stove or oven.
We know how much your independence and home matters to you, that’s why we want to make sure you can remain comfortable and safe in your home for as long as possible. Across our extensive range of products, we’re sure you’ll be able to find what you need to make this dream a reality.
