NEW Moving & Handling Category

Moving & HandlingIf you look after someone with an illness or a disability, you may need to help them move around i.e. in and out of bed, chair, car, bath, etc. It’s essential that you use products to help moving safely so you do not hurt yourself or the patient.

Our new moving & handling category features products specially designed to assist in this area including:-

Falls Awareness Week, 17th – 21st June
Falls Awareness WeekThis week is Falls Awareness Week with the aim to highlight products and services available to help reduce the risk of falling.

Between a third and half of people over 65 will have a fall in any given year, and although many of these are minor, about a quarter will cause physical injury that requires medical treatment.  Even a minor fall can shake you up and knock your self-confidence – which sets you up for falling again in the future.

There are plenty of steps you can take to protect yourself;  simple things like looking after your feet/footwear and eyesight; exercise to improve balance and stamina; removing trip hazards at home or buying mobility products to stop you falling such as tri-wheel walkers4 wheel rollators or even a larger mobility item like a stair lift, etc.

If you are worried about either you or a family member falling and want to discuss possible products or services to suit them; please feel free to give us a call in confidence and we will be happy to help.
