If you’re caring for a loved one at home, it’s important to ensure you’re supported by top quality medical supplies and equipment to allow you to provide the best possible level of care.
Whether your spouse or family member is recovering from surgery or treatment for an illness – or you have an elderly parent living with you who requires aged care support – there are a number of medical equipment options available at Sable Pharmacy to make your life a little easier, and make your loved one as happy and comfortable as possible at home.
Medical Equipment: Mobility Aids
Helping your loved one to stay mobile and active is important – but it’s equally important to look after your own health and wellbeing while caring for them at home. Assisting someone to get in and out of bed, use the shower or bathroom facilities, and get out and about can cause aches, pains and strains over a long period of time… and you’re not going to be able to care for your partner, parent or family member if you’re laid up in bed yourself with a bad back.
Mobility aids are a fantastic medical equipment tool to support the care you provide for your loved one at home, including:
- Walking frames
- Underarm and forearm crutches
- Shower aids
You can purchase mobility aids for long-term use, or – if you’re caring for a friend or family member who is recovering from an operation and may only require a mobility aid for a short time – your pharmacy can hire medical supplies such as mobility aids for as long as you need them. If you’re not certain which product is right for you, your local pharmacy staff can advise on the best mobility aids to the support you in caring for your loved one, according to their needs.
