Using equipment to retain independence

One of the biggest fears we face when growing older or after illness is the loss of independence.  You may be finding it more difficult to get in or out of the bath, sit up in bed, get out of a chair or even get your legs into bed each evening.

Also, as people age the likelihood of falling increases and sometimes find getting up again impossible.  This can lead to anxiety about being a nuisance and a fear of falling again can cause a reduction in activity

Today there is a great range of bathroombedroom, and safe lifting products available and once you’ve sourced the right piece of assistive equipment for your needs you’ll wonder why you waited so long to make a purchase. If you have decided it’s time to explore your options, there are plenty of ways to do it.
