Most people take their mobility for granted until they don’t have as much of it anymore. If your loved one has limitations in their movements, whether they are getting older or are injured, then the gift of mobility can brighten their day and maybe even the rest of their life! You can’t go wrong with any of these mobility gifts this holiday season.
When you aren’t confident with your footing, it’s easy to be tentative and increase the chances of slipping and falling. With a shower chair, not only will your loved one feel safer and more stable in the shower, but they will also be able to relax while bathing instead of worrying about slipping and falling.
If you want to bring out the youthfulness in your elderly loved one with mobility limitations, get them an electric scooter. They are almost guaranteed to have a huge smile on their face when they realize they can get places easily and in style. Just be sure their home has at least a temporary wheelchair ramp so they can try out their mobility scooter right away!
Stair Lift or Porch Lift
Getting up and down the stairs will be a breeze for your loved one when they have a reliable stairlift. They can age in place while being able to access every part of their home with very few limitations. And if they have a front or back porch they like to sit and relax on, install a porch lift to make it even easier for them to do so!
Lift chairs come with standard features or you can customize them to your liking. The worst part about sitting in a regular chair for people with mobility limitations is having to get out of the chair when they need to. With a lift chair, exiting the seat safely is the easy part since it can be adjusted.
New Wheelchair Ramp
Is there a temporary wheelchair ramp at your loved one’s home? Installing a new wheelchair ramp can be a great gift to give this holiday season. It will be used all the time and can be customized to the specifications your loved one needs.
