Signs You Might Need To Invest In Mobility Equipment

At some point in many people’s lives, mobility equipment becomes an essential. Whether it’s age or a disability, there are many reasons why you might need a little extra assistance getting around your home. There are some very clear signs that it’s time to fit your home with mobility aids. We’ll discuss a few below which we refer to as the 3 F’s.

Fatigue

When your mobility isn’t as good as it used to be, getting around the home can be very tiring. Although it may not seem like far to travel, going up and down stairs can be an exhausting process for many people. As if getting puffed out and tired wasn’t bad enough as it is, it can also pose a risk of injury. If you’re too tired to lift yourself up and down stairs safely, it could lead to a fall.

To give you and your family peace of mind that you can safely move around your home, mobility equipment will be a great investment. Depending on the layout of your home, you could choose a stairlift or a home lift. Stairlifts will fit to your stairs and allow you to take a seat while travelling up and down safely. On the other hand, a home lift only requires you to get onto the platform and press a button. This is great if you use a wheelchair, as you won’t need to get out of it to use the lift.

Falls

Unfortunately, those with limited mobility are more likely to fall. When this starts to happen, it’s important to think wisely about your safety at home. Your health and wellbeing are very important, so don’t feel as though you’re being a bother if you need to ask for some assistance. Mobility equipment can improve your quality of life by giving you an extra hand where you need it.

Stairlifts and home lifts minimise the risk of falling in one of the most dangerous areas of your home: the stairs. Even if you’ve only fallen in areas where the risk is minimal, you don’t want to wait too long to fit equipment that will help you use the stairs. It’s much better to be proactive when it comes to your mobility.

Freedom

Many people find that as their mobility reduces, their freedom does too. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. Having the freedom to move around your home independently is often underappreciated, until it becomes a difficulty. If you’re not able to use the stairs without assistance, installing a stairlift or home lift will give you back some of your independence.
