Our Range of Daily Living Aids
Tasks that may seem small can become increasingly difficult as people get older, our daily living aids are designed to assist with these small tasks and help people reclaim their independence and autonomy. Living aids are also useful for carers, allowing them to focus more on larger tasks. We have various products that can offer assistance in all areas of the house, so here’s a guide to help you find the equipment you need.
In the Bedroom
To find equipment designed to help in the bedroom, check out our range of bed, chair and dressing living aids. Here you will find items like rope ladder bed hoists, which can assist people with sitting up in bed, or sock aids, which make putting socks on easy. Dressing sticks and button hooks can help people with limited movement and agility in their arms and hands get dressed by themselves, long handled combs and hairbrushes can allow people to style their own hair. These aids for daily living will help individuals gain confidence by giving them more control over how they present themselves.
In the Bathroom
For equipment to improve safety and hygiene in the bathroom, look through our bathroom and toilet range. A sponge with a handle, toe washer, and hair washer will help people with limited flexibility and mobility wash themselves, allowing them to reach areas on their body that would otherwise require a second person to clean. Suction mats and absorbent mats will help prevent slips and falls by giving people dry and grippy surfaces to walk and stand on. For people with casts, we also have full arm, full leg, and half leg waterproof cast protectors so casts won’t accidentally become wet in the shower or bath.
In the Kitchen
Preparing and eating food often requires small hand movements, which can be difficult for people with limited hand strength and mobility. For a solution to this problem, browse our range of daily living aids for food preparation and cutlery. We have knives and forks with large grips and some that are angled to assist with eating, and feeding cups and mugs for easier drinking. For food preparation, we have our One Touch Automatic Can and Jar Openers, tipping kettles, kitchen workstations, and much, much more. These living aids will help people make food and eat independently and safely.
Around the House
For equipment to help with those little tasks in and around the house, go to our range of household and mobility living aids. Here you will find pick-up reachers to assist with retrieving items, magnifiers to assist with reading small lettering, and interactive companion animals to bring a little extra joy to the household. This independent living equipment will provide invaluable help around the house for people with limited strength and mobility, allowing them to reclaim some autonomy and confidence and keep them safe in their homes for longer.
