As we age, accomplishing daily tasks that were once basic to us can now present a challenge. Not only is this a mental obstacle that many seniors must overcome, but physically, it's an extremely dangerous reality that many older individuals face every day. No matter what age you are, it's important to feel safe in your home and out in public.
Over the past few years, the trend for senior citizens is to age in place. This means to live in the comfort of your own home instead of moving into an assisted living facility. But to do this, modifications to your current home must be made. One of the biggest fears for senior citizens is going up and down stairs.
In this blog, we'll discuss how Bell House Medical can provide solutions to this fear while helping you navigate in public as well.
Oftentimes, stairs in your home are at least 10 steps high. When each step is taken with great caution, it can be both dangerous and tiresome. A solution to this problem is to have a Bruno Quality Stairlift installed along your stairs. Our stairlifts are made in the USA with the best materials on the market. They provide a safe, smooth ride both up and down your stairs. It's as easy as taking a seat, buckling in and pressing a button to arrive at the next level of your home.
Vertical Platform Lifts
Typically used outdoors, in a garage, or a basement, vertical platform lifts are another solution that can be installed to avoid using stairs. These really come in handy when you use a wheelchair or scooter on a daily basis. The vertical platform lift is controlled by a simple, accessible push-button control pad. It can raise you up to any height landing from as low at 4 inches up to as high as 14 feet and has a weight capacity of 750 pounds.
A device that might not take you as high as a stairlift or vertical platform lift, but serves a purpose of equal importance is a Lift Chair! In particular, the VivaLift Power Recliner. It has been deemed the most comfortable chair in the world by multiple sources. It offers a 4-motor recliner with countless position combinations.
If you feel uneasy or have difficulty either sitting down or standing up from a chair, a lift chair can change your life. It removes the stress of unstable position changes and can prevent a catastrophic fall.
Do you have a power wheelchair or scooter but don't have a way to transport it outside of your neighborhood? A vehicle lift can help you with that! It can lift your mobility device up and into your vehicle or out and onto the ground so you can use it.
A vehicle lift is a great device that will help you stay social and allow you to do activities with loved ones in public settings.
