I was thinking the other day about the impact of assistive devices for the patients I work with when it hit me: it can only take one device to make a huge difference for someone’s life. Like a pair of glasses for someone who struggles to see or a cane for someone with decreasing balance finding a device to fill a need gives back a sense of independence and dignity.
It may be overly simple, but adding a shower seat to the shower could be just the ticket to help grandma feel confident enough to shower when she maybe had previously been too apprehensive to do so. This impacts not only the daily act of showering, but helps her feel better about herself, her hygiene, and her overall sense of wellness and well being.
One simple device—a pill organizer, talking alarm clock, cane, one handed belt, or swivel seat cushion—could give so much more to the user beyond its very basic function. With depression occurring at a high rate among the aging population, it’s important to look at the bigger picture. That’s why at Ease Living we only carry the best products, because we are talking about improving a life. And if that’s what we’re doing, every item we sell should be dependable, sturdy, and the very best at its function.So when it’s time to shop for assistive devices, keep an open mind. It’s much more than just walking, showering, dressing, or other daily tasks.
