A healthy lifestyle and mobility, matter so much not only for our physical self but also our mental wellbeing. There are so many tasks we take for granted – I’m guilty of this too: this could be as simple as reaching up to the top cupboard in the kitchen or trying to get up the stairs or reading your medication prescription label. But here at Ableworld, we understand that some elderly and disabled people require a little extra assistance when it comes to mobility.
Mobility aids are the perfect solution as they are intended to promote safety and independence for those who need that extra support in their everyday routines. For many people with either a temporary or long-term mobility issue, they have become an integral part of their life. They can come in many forms from Riser Recliners to Wheelchairs to Stairlifts to Grab Rails and Ramps etc.
From the minute you wake up you should feel empowered to embrace your independence and for people with limited mobility, a good night’s sleep is vital. What’s a better addition to your home than an Adjustable Bed? We recommend the Calverley Electric Adjustable Bed, it promotes good posture and spinal support and can provide a great night’s sleep which results in better overall health. The bed is controlled by a 6-button handset which allows you to choose from a range of positions to make sure you are as comfortable as possible.
Ensuring your make the most of what your body CAN do, instead of focussing on what you can’t – will help improve both your mind and mental well-being. Whether you're using a Walker or a Mobility Scooter, both are efficient ways you can greatly improve your fitness and mobility. It can help you find your lost freedom - spend more time outside, hang out with friends, or go to the supermarket. And the Rascal 388XL Mobility Scooter is a great all-rounder for just that, it is legal to go on the road but is only mid-size so navigating around the park and on pavements, is perfect for too. Also comes with a full lighting kit which allows you to drive at night or in dull visibility conditions, to give everyone better piece of mind.
The kitchen is also a part of the house that can bring about its own challenges and can be a safety concern for any loved ones – but encouraging a safer way of handling mundane tasks can make a world of difference for those who need it. We have many Kitchen Aids at Ableworld that can make life easier and alleviate the stress of doing these activities. The Uccello tipping kettle for one is perfect for those who struggle to lift the kettle - and we all know how much tea or coffee is a staple to anyone’s morning routine. Or the Spill not Jar Bottle Opener is great to assist those who need a little extra grip, designed with three inverted cones which are used to hold a container steady, such as drinks bottles or child-proof medicine containers. And a further three opener cones are included to make opening tricky jars easier. The base has a rubber bottom, which helps to stop the opener from moving on smooth surfaces. The base can be fixed permanently onto a workshop or contained in a drawer ready for use.
We are currently running our winter sale promotion, so it’s the perfect time to pick up that extra piece of support that’s going to make your everyday tasks easier. Because mobility really does matter. And we encourage people to embrace their independence and try to stay mobile for as long as possible.
