Retaining as much independence as possible is important in most situations. People who are elderly wish to remain in their homes safely. Those recovering from an accident, surgery, or disease treatments may require assistance to get in and out of the bathtub, use the stairs, or stand. People living with physical disabilities may need grab bars, foam cushions, or bed wedges.
Walking up and down stairs can be impossible or dangerous for some people. Stair lifts allow people to utilize the second story of a house, enjoy community buildings, and access exterior offices or stores that are not located at ground level. It is not necessary to move downstairs, find a new apartment, or go to a nursing home when mobility is compromised.
There are several styles, sizes, and price ranges available to accommodate personal budgets and needs. Experienced suppliers, such as McArdle Surgical, offer free in-home consultations to assess the situation. Measurements will be taken, products suggested, and quotes provided. These lifts can be installed on straight or curved staircases.
Another help to maintain independence is a lift chair. Comfortable reclining chairs are built with mechanical systems that allow people to stand up without assistance. Standing alone can cause falls, injuries, and dizzy spells. Some people lack the upper body strength to support their own weight and rely on family members or care givers. Sitting is also safe and easy. The chairs are available in several styles, colors, and fabrics to match any decor. Anti-skid and anti-scratch feet protect flooring.
Products to increase mobility and independence range from scooters to canes. Wheelchairs, walkers, canes, and quad-rollers are offered so people can go where they want to when they want to. Crutches are available as well. Selection assistance, proper fitting, or height adjustments are offered at the showroom or at home when items are delivered.
Getting in and out of the shower or tub can be safer with shower chairs or benches, bathtub safety stools, and grab bars placed exactly where needed. McArdle Surgical offers sales, installation, and demonstrations to ensure customers know how to operate equipment.
