As is the population worldwide, Australia’s population is ageing. The Bureau of Statistics projects that by 2064, people 65 years and over will make up 28% of the population. Multiple factors are contributing to this, including ever-increasing and improving life expectancy. From current research, several health conditions are most prevalent for older Australians, including arthritis, hypertension, hearing loss, diabetes and osteoporosis. At Patient Handling, we offer a range of products that can assist with a number of these conditions to enable independent living and the best quality care.
