Now, more than ever, seniors want to live independently, where they are most comfortable. However, as mobility changes, many feel the only choice is to move to a long-term care facility. At Home Helpers® Home Care, we don’t want anyone to feel that is their only option. We’ve worked hard to provide the care needed to keep people independent at home for as long as they choose. With partners like 101 Mobility, we can help adapt the home to make living easier as you or your loved one experiences physical changes.
How an Accessible Home can work for you
For those with mobility or balance challenges, once-beloved features of one’s home can become daunting. But with a few modifications, you can continue to enjoy spending time in your second-story bedroom or taking a relaxing bath in your soaker tub. The experts from 101 Mobility have helped make thousands of homes work for their residents with a few simple updates. Here are a few of their most common solutions:
Think about your favorite seat where you watch tv or read books. Now imagine if that chair was even more comfortable with the ability to fully recline, provide heat and massage, and help you stand up again. That’s a lift chair – the recliner of your dreams. Not only does it offer therapeutic benefits, but it can also help with sit-to-stand transitions with or without your Caregiver’s assistance.
Stairlifts can help make molehills out of mountains in your home. Instead of struggling with stairs or, worse yet, giving up access to your second (or third!) story, consider a stairlift. With the push of a button, you can effortlessly glide up and downstairs so you can continue to enjoy your entire home without limits. 101 Mobility offers stairlifts to fit any home and user and even offers stairlift rental options so you can try one for yourself without a long-term commitment.
Ramps provide safe and reliable room-to-room access for clients with walkers, wheelchairs, power chairs, and more. Installed both inside and outside of the house, ramps can be purchased or rented, depending on your preferences.
Safety is a critical concern for both family and Home Helpers Caregivers. Patient lifts can safely assist in transferring you or your loved one into or out of bed. Options include both ceiling mounted and portable solutions.
The bathroom is often considered one of most dangerous rooms in the house. Ensure safety with an array of different grab bars, transfer benches, or transfer tubs.
These are just a few of the options our partner 101 Mobility offers. If you are interested in learning more about their solutions or what might work best for your home, you can call your local Home Helpers agency. We will provide a free home safety assessment and share all the options available to help you age comfortably in place.
With a Home Helpers Caregiver and home modifications from 101 Mobility, anyone can live comfortably and confidently in their own home.
