Plenty of different mobility options available
As you age, staying mobile can become harder.
Those once easy to manage tasks become arduous and you may require additional assistance.
Below is a list of possible mobility items that can have you on your way to living a more comfortable and mobile life.
A shower stool has many benefits, and can allow a person to enjoy a shower while safely sitting down. This eliminates the risk of slipping or falling, and gives you greater stability. Many people also suffer from weakness or dizziness when standing for longer periods of time, these people may also benefit from such an item.
There’s nothing more enjoyable than a brisk walk around the block, or even a quick trip to the shops. However, in your later years this may become more difficult than ever before. Mobility scooters, just like cars, come in a range of sizes, shapes and colours. Whether you are after one for urban and light terrain, travel, or something high powered and heavy duty, there is certainly
something for you.
Crutches and canes:
Simply getting from your living room chair to the kitchen sink can become a challenge very quickly. Don’t let your lack of mobility stop you from getting those much-needed household chores done. Simply investing in a crutch or a cane to get you off the chair and onto your feet is one item you will love to own.
If those stairs are a bit tricky, it may be time to invest in ramps and rails to have you zooming into the house in no time! Rails are also particularly helpful in the bathroom and toilet, as well as any stairways and outside areas with a bit of a lift in terrain.
Ramps and rails: Furniture:
There are a range of furniture items that will fit well with the rest of your
furniture, but still offer extra assistance.
From lift-assist chairs to height adjustable orthopaedic chairs, leg rests, tables and trolleys – whatever you need, you are sure to be able to find it.
When the body is no longer what it used to be and your mobility is suffering, make sure you visit your doctor and find out the options available to you – for there are many.
