3 Ways to Make your Home Mobile-Friendly

3 Ways to Make your Home Mobile-Friendly

You might be expecting your elderly parents to stay over Christmas, or you yourself are now of retirement age and you are dealing with mobility issues. The average UK home would require alterations and additions in order to be regarded as mobility-friendly and if that is something on your list of things to do, here are 5 ways to make your home a mobile-friendly space.

  1. Install a stairlift – If you have a temporary need, there is affordable stairlift rental in Coventry from an established local company. Of course, you wouldn’t invest in a stairlift for a few weeks or months, which is why you can rent a unit for as long as you need. A team of installers fabricate the stairlift and when you no longer need it, they return and dismantle the unit, making good when finished.
  2. Personal senior alarm – If you Google ‘personal senior alarm, Australia’, this will give you a list of URLs of companies that offer this service. The hardware consists of a Transmitter that is located in the house and the person wears the device around their neck like a pendant. There is a large red button and when pressed, this sends a signal to an online caregiver who engage in dialogue with the device wearer and if needed, can call in emergency services.
  3. Bathroom add-ons – Handrail supports near the toilet and next to the vanity, while a shower chair and non-slip bathmats make the bathroom a much safer place for seniors. All the surfaces are hard, with dangerous corners that would injure you in a fall.

If you would like to learn more about making a home mobile friendlier, search for a stairlift rental provider and ask them to send a technician to your home.
