Maryland In Home Care Agency Lists Top Mobility Equipment For Seniors

(prsubmissionsite) October 29, 2019 – Comfort Home Care, a Maryland in home care agency, recently released a blog listing the top mobility equipment for seniors. Having the proper equipment to allow seniors to be fully functional is a great way for seniors to live their later lives to their fullest while being safe.

In-home mobility equipment helps the elderly move around their home with more freedom. This could be a cane, wheelchair, railing or other device that will assist them to move around their home freely. If you know a loved one that is receiving in-home care, you may want to consider one of these equipment items to gift them for full mobility.

The first item recommended is a wheelchair because they come in many different styles to suit a senior’s needs. It also allows them to move the wheels themselves as well as allowing the caregiver to maneuver them. Portable scooters are battery powered and can easily fold for better transportation. Portable chair assist is a sturdy metal frame that can be placed in front of or next to a chair, then held onto when sitting or standing to provide extra stability when in events like movies, performances, and restaurants. Vehicle support handles are essential to help seniors into cars by attaching them to the inside or outside of the car for extra hold. Bed rails are wire frames that can give seniors an easy place to hold while getting in and out of bed while providing assistance to help prevent falls in the middle of the night. Shower chairs are great also to prevent slipping and injuries. Lastly, there’s the classic cane and walker that come with rubber non-slip tips at the end and are generally lightweight and easy to transport.
