Staying safe in the home

Posted on: August 27th, 2015 by Bellin Health Home Care Equipment Blogger

Week-4

 

Bellin Health Home Care Equipment believes that you have the right to remain in your own home well into retirement age. But, that can be more difficult the more our bodies age. Suddenly, daily tasks such as carrying the laundry up to the bedroom or stepping into the shower seem like great tests of athleticism. The smallest slip-up could mean a fall, and a fall could cost your thousands in medical bills.

Luckily, with a few simple products, your house can become your castle once more. Many of these require little to no home modifications:

Stair lifts. Wouldn’t it be great if someone swept you up the stairs every time you needed to use them? Well, a stair lift does just that. Simply sit down, operate the toggle, and away you go! Not only do they save your knees, they also can save you from a fall! Bellin Health Home Care Equipment carries stair lifts in our online catalog.

Lift Chairs. Sometimes, you just need an extra boost to get up out of a chair, and that’s exactly what a lift chair does. They have all the amenities of a regular recliner, but with the added bonus of reclining forward. Owning one of these can keep up from stumbling as you stand up. Peruse a few of these comfy chairs in our online catalog.

Bathroom safety equipment. There are a number of different items you can add to your bathroom to make it a safer place. Transfer benches make it easier for you to get in and out of the tub without tripping. Grab bars can help you avoid a fall or stop one in the process. Raised toilet seats mean you don’t have to so far to sit down when using the commode. Our online catalog has a number of bathroom safety devices to choose from.

If you need any help making your home a safer place, just remember, Bellin Health Home Care Equipment is there for you. Our staff can answer any questions you have about our equipment.
