Aged Care Beds
Aged Care Beds are ideal for use at both facilities and in a private residential home. The design of these aged care beds assist the elderly when they are in a home care environment, and they feature electrically adjustable settings. These settings range from adjusting the height of the bed along with the back support and quite commonly, the knee bend. These aged care beds may also be used with those with mobility issues or some other kind of special need that makes transferring from a bed difficult or when needing to spend a prolonged period in bed. Not only does it become safer and more accessible for the user; the carer is also assisted by reducing the physical requirement needed to reposition and transfer. For some owners of an aged care bed, they can maintain their independence for a much longer time. An aged care bed may provide enough assistance to allow the user to remain at home before needing to move to an aged care facility. Most of these home care beds offer the same support and safety of a hospital bed. Often they are designed to suit the aesthetics of a home environment. All home care beds are electrically operated with a handheld controller. The hand control is located in reach of the user or the caregiver. Functions include independently adjusting the backrest, knee bend or the height. Some beds will position to a Trendelenburg raise. Additional accessories can be fitted to the bed to provide extra comfort and safety. These accessories can include a bed rail to reduce the risk of a fall from the bed. A bed stick can be attached to assist the user in a sitting position or to reposition in bed. A leg extension is fitted at the foot of the bed for taller users. A footboard may also assist in reducing slipping from the end of the bed. Some aged care beds are also able to be folded for easy transport and storage.
