  4. Tips to Consider When Choosing A Rollator

    Tips to Consider When Choosing A Rollator

    Rollators are a mobility device, much like a walking frame, but they have the addition of wheels so the device can be easily moved without lifting it. They are often used to provide the user with support when walking independently. In some cases, users will need the extra support or balance due to mobility or an increase in fatigue when being active. Rollators come in different styles with a variety of features including a 3 or 4 wheel option.

    When choosing a rollator to suit your needs, there are different factors you should take into account when making the decision. These can differ from why you need a rollator, to where you will be using it, or if you need a compact rollator that can be folded and stored easily. Other considerations can be safety features such as brakes or the type of grips, or if you need a folding seat on it.

    When choosing a rollator, the purpose of the

    Tips When Choosing A Mobility Scooter 

    Independence is something we all depend on to get us through each day. We like to be able to carry out tasks ourselves ever since we were young and we would like to continue doing this into our elder years.  This can include everyday tasks such walking to the shop, meeting our friends for a cuppa or going to visit our families. We need to be able to get around on our own accord and to do that, we need mobility. Some people’s mobility levels can differ from others and sometimes, age can be a factor in this. However, regardless of your age, you still want to keep your independence by doing these things on our own.


    If you feel like you can’t walk to the shop because it’s too far, or you get tired

    How to Avoid Slips and Trips in Icy Weather

    The cold and frosty weather is here and with MET Eireann issuing various colours of weather warnings, and temperatures plummeting into the minus fields, it can be easy to trip or fall on the wet and icy surfaces.

If you are unfortunate to suffer a fall at some stage, the injury can be significant, and it can also be hard to get yourself motivated again. 

    Here are some tips to help prevent you from a fall:

    Keeping Mum and Dad At Home. Part 2: Living Room

    We tend to spend a lot of our time in our living rooms, being comfortable and relaxing. But to do this, we need to have a chair that we find easy to get in and out of and one that also suits our posture and needs. The importance of a comfortable and accessible seat increases as we get older and sometimes, our parents might need one that can aid them in the everyday task of sitting down or getting up or simply just need one with a comfier seat or higher back

    Often, we can find ourselves in an armchair that isn’t suitable for long periods of sitting because they are based on appearances rather than functionality. In many cases, the height and depth of the sofa or armchair is not accurate for those using them for many reasons, such as them being too narrow or too wide or because the furniture is old and used. This can then affect our posture and muscle function and cause a decline in the speed our bodies move at. Sometimes we tend to sit in positions
