We have yet to find a way to slow down or even stop ageing and until we do, we have to accept that we all grow old and eventually expire. If you are living alone and are enjoying your retirement years, here are a few tips to make your home more accessible as you get older.
- Upstairs access – There are very affordable refurbished stairlifts in Stafford from a leading local supplier and the price includes installation. If getting up and down the stairs is becoming a challenge, it might be time to install a stairlift, which is very easy to operate and as safe as could be.
- Aluminium walker – The frame has four legs, each tipped with a rubber stop and with adjustable height, you can use the unit to support you as you move around the house. Inexpensive and very useful, you might also want to buy a walking stick, which comes in a range of styles and gives you essential support when walking.
- Mobility scooter – They have indoor and outdoor models and the latest generation are fast to charge and have a good range of travel. You can buy or rent a mobility scooter from a local provider and they also service the vehicle, keeping you safe on your travels.
The best thing to do is search online for a supplier of mobility aids such as stairlifts and mobility scooters and you can place your order via their website and the products will be delivered to your door.
