    What is A Rollator Walker?

    what you need to know about rollators

    A rollator is a walker with four wheels and hand brakes- most also have a seat to take a rest. Rollators are a great choice for someone who needs a little help with stability but also likes to always have a place to rest and an easy way to carry things with them. There are a lot of rollators on the market. Which is the best for you? At Ease Living, I have searched the globe to find the best rollator walkers. This was not an easy search as I am not easily swayed by bells and whistles or cost.  Only the best for Ease's customers.

    Here are some details about my favorites:

    Rollz Motion Rollator Walker     

    The Rollz ia amazing.  I love the modern look and different colors. Functionally there are some great features. It really is a two-in-one: a wheelchair and a walker. The transformation from one to the other takes less than a minute with no tools. Truly ingenious. A lot of people buy the Rollz to travel because instead of bringing a walker and a wheelchair, only one item is needed. And, unlike most transport chairs, the Rollz features a solid seat that is much more comfortable than a sling seat. It also will stand when folded, making transferring from car to the rollator safer and much smoother.

    Carbon Ultralight     

    My best selling walker! This rollator is made of carbon fiber which is one of the world's strongest and lightest materials. This makes the carbon ultralight rollator easy to transport and provides a smooth effortless ride. And it looks great at the same time. The Carbon Ultralight comes in 3 colors and in 2 widths and is height adjustable for the most comfortable fit. 

    There are two special features about this rollator that is available in grey and red:

    1. It comes in three different heights and each is adjustable beyond that. It will accommodate nearly anyone 4’7” to 6’7”.
    2. It is stable when partially folded. This makes it perfect for getting through narrow doorways, stores or restaurants, or navigating crowds. Standard rollators and walkers usually don’t fit through bathroom doors.

    The Escape Mini     

    A slightly smaller and lighter version of the Escape discussed above. And it is ORANGE!

    The EZ Fold N Go Rollator     

    The newest addition to the Ease rollator line up id the EZ Fold-N-Go Rollator. It is easy to fold with full locking brakes and a comfortable seat. This rollator weighs only 14 pounds and folds 3 times smaller than most for easy transport

    8 Tips for Summer Travel by Car with Seniors

    8 tips for summer road trips with seniors

    Millions of people will hit the road this summer. Whether it be a visit to family or a getaway for relaxation or adventure, there is no reason to let physical limitations restrict your travel. In addition to making sure your car is properly serviced and ready for the trip, here are more tips for traveling by car:

    • Check your cellular provider’s coverage map to assure your phone will work along your journey and at your destination. Make sure you have a car and a wall charger.
    • Pack extra water and snacks in case of a delay. If you will be traveling in warm weather, having plenty of fluids available is crucial. Many medications need to be taken with food so make sure there is a snack handy at pill time.
    • Keep medication in an easy to reach spot to help ensure you stay on schedule. 
    • Bring a copy of medication and any other important medical records just in case.
    • The Metro Car Handle make it easy to get out of the car by providing something to push on- like the solid armrest of a chair. As an occupational therapist, I get nervous when I see people grabbing on to the door to help themselves up. The door moves and could land you right back in the seat or on the ground!
    • Wear layers and plan for changes. The weather can change in a heartbeat here in the Midwest with summer storms. Allow for layers that can be put on or taken off and pack something for rain.
    • Allow extra time. Summer is construction season in many states. It may take you longer to get to your destination than you anticipate. Take the stress out of travel and allow extra time.
    • Plan for flexibility. Strict time tables and rushing around can cause unnecessary stress. Travel affects everyone differently so allow time for breaks if you or a travel companion starts to feel fatigued. Falls, illness and disorientation are common when elderly people get too tired.

    With these tips your summer journey will be fun and safe for everyone.

    Why Shop with Ease Living?

    why shop with ease living

     If you have checked out our site or know our story, you know a little bit about why shopping with Ease Living is different than shopping at your local pharmacy or other medical supply store. I would like to elaborate a little bit and show you why  Ease Living is the best choice for independence products.

    1. Alison (me!)! For more than 20 years, I have worked with countless individuals in helping them achieve independence. As an occupational therapist, I have a unique set of qualifications to know which products are the most useful and in demand. I test all products before putting them up for sale, making sure they are the best in the world.
    2. Curation. Many drugstores or medical equipment companies have buyers that look for the the latest and greatest in the field. However, they are often looking at profit margins and trends rather than the usability and durability of the products they choose to carry. Since I have worked with a lot of  patients, I have the education and the experience to choose the finest, most useful equipment available.
    3. Beauty and luxury. Many of the products I carry cannot be found in your corner drugstore. That’s because I choose the very best and most beautiful aids I can find. That doesn’t mean I select ONLY on aesthetics! The products must be high quality, and the best at performing the task at hand before they make it into the collection. I look beyond price to find the very best products for the job. These unique solutions tend to be more beautiful and durable than the products offered by other retailers.
    4. Service and accountability. Dealing with a small company means you won’t talk to a clueless sales associate or an anonymous call center employee. Often, if you have a question about your order, you’ll talk to me and I will help you find the perfect solution to your problem.

    I hope you’ll choose to order your independence products from Ease Living. I'm  confident I can help you find the best product for your situation. Shop today!

    What Is Occupational Therapy?

     What Is Occupational Therapy

    The World Federation of Occupational Therapists defines occupational therapy like this:

    Occupational therapy is a client-centered health profession concerned with promoting health and well being through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by working with people and communities to enhance their ability to engage in the occupations they want to, need to, or are expected to do, or by modifying the occupation or the environment to better support their occupational engagement.

    That is a mouthful. When I enter a patient’s room and introduce myself I tell them that my job is to make sure a person can do what they need to do to take care of themselves. This includes things like getting dressed, going to the bathroom, getting around the house and community and even doing their job. All of this can be hard after an illness or injury. As an OT practicing in a hospital in acute care- where people go when they are first admitted to the hospital or just had surgery, this is what I do. Occupational therapists also work with adults in nursing homes, out patient clinics and home health. Children receive OT in the home, hospitals, clinics and in school to help them perform to the best of their abilities in their roles. While many occupational therapists work with kids, I have always been partial to the older population. It just suits me better. :)
