Aged Care Aids

There is a vast range of aged care aids to assist the elderly in undertaking daily activities. Many aids help with mobility while minimising injury such as from a fall. Other aids will make a once simple task effortless once again.

Aged Care Aids

Aged Care aids can range from the simplest of devices such as an extended arm reacher through to a rollator, ramp and scooter. Aged care aids are all designed to improve their quality of life and maintain independence, so the elderly can continue with daily activities and remain active within the community. Rollators or Walkers are widely used by the elderly for added stability around the home and when outdoors. The added benefit of a rollator is the seat which can assist with fatigue. This seat on the rollator is useful for transporting items around the home, making everyday tasks simpler.Other commonly used aged care aids are tipping kettles. This enables safe and coordinated pouring. The kettle remains in its cradle and does not need to be lifted. Pressure sores become more common in those who are seated for a prolonged period. There are medical grade sheepskin boots, mattress and chair overlay's available to assist with minimising this type of injury. For many, choosing equipment to suit individual needs is simple and can be undertaken independently or with assistance from a family member or friend. When needs become more complex or when the equipment is more specialised, an experienced consultant, Occupational Therapist, or trained healthcare worker may be engaged to perform an assessment.
