The majority of people tend to presume that navigating busy city centres and using public transport are two of the most difficult feats for people living with a disability, however an individual’s own home can be just as unequipped too. After all, narrow corridors and steep staircases aren’t exactly wheelchair friendly! Here at Assurance Mobility, we want to help our clients with every aspect of life. Read on as we go over a few reasons why daily living assistance tools are so important…
By definition, a disability is a condition that makes it more difficult for an individual to carry out certain activities and means that they may require assistance in the form of carers or equipment. With this said, it is important to recognise that every individual will experience a disability differently and this means that there is no one-size-fits-all approach, particularly when it comes to daily living assistance.
In order to ensure that we can meet the needs of our clients appropriately, the team here at Assurance Mobility have a wide range of daily living assistance tools that are crafted with many disabilities in mind. After all, there are dozens of conditions that are managed differently by each individual. For example, our commodes are discreet yet effective and can be purchased with basket weaving for comfort or wheels for convenience. In addition to this, we also stock patient-turning grab rails, easy to use bedside tables with rotational implementation and a wide range of kitchen and dining tools to make meals times a breeze such as a bendable cutlery, two-handle cups and an electrical kettle with a self-tipping motion.
Although many people are able to cope with a disability without the need for such tools, it is important that those who require such assistance are taken into consideration. After all, conditions like Parkinson’s can cause uncontrollable tremors in the limbs and the use of specialised cutlery at mealtimes can reduce unnecessary stress for the sufferer whilst still allowing them to retain their independence inside their own home.
Here at Assurance Mobility, we believe that a disability should never be seen as an in-ability. After all, some of the most successful directors, writers and doctors have a disability! With this said, we recognise that many people require daily assistance in order to retain their independence and experience the equal opportunities that life provides.
