Independence is an item of crucial importance to most senior citizens. As they have been independent for most of their lives, feeling the loss of that independence as their bodies become less able is often a bitter, sad and frustrating transition.
This need not be the case though!
Most seniors (and others with disabilities) really can remain independent. They can stay in their own homes and access any necessary care in the comfort and safety of their own spaces.
The way to do this is by having living assistance in the form of nursing professionals come to them, and by implementing modern access tools throughout their home.
Modern access tools include showers and baths that can be walked into, flashing lights (for doorbells, telephones) when hearing has become to decline, adjustable beds, and of course, stairlifts.
A lot of people will think that the latter is difficult, but it’s actually really simple to get a stairlift fitted. You simply need to connect with the right company and choose the type of chair that you want. They can even fit it onto a curved banister!
There is no need to leave one’s home anymore because of age or declining mobility.
There is no need to lose one’s independence; with the utilization of accessible tools, we can all be as independent and retain access as we want, for as long as we want.
