Knowing about mobility aids and where to get them helps older adults maintain their independence, dignity, activity and wellbeing longer AND protects their carers from strain or injury. I reveal the equipment we’ve valued over the years and how to access it, in case it can help you too.
Perhaps your older friend/parent/parents have started needing a bit more support. Perhaps you’re nearby so you can pop in from time to time. What happens when it’s clear that ‘popping in’ is no longer enough?
I love a manual. Someone, somewhere has done it before right? So I popped into Thame Library to see what was available. Turns out there are quite a few books on caring and dementia. I scooped up a handful of books for carers and brought them home to review.
