Worldwide, one in three women and one in five men aged 50 years and over will suffer an osteoporotic fracture.  Osteoporosis causes bones to become weak and fragile, so that they break easily – even as a result of a minor fall, a bump, a sneeze, or a sudden movement. Fractures caused by osteoporosis can be life-threatening and a major cause of pain and long-term disability.  Therefore wherever possible it is best to avoid bumps and falls in and around your home.

World Arthritis Day – 12th October

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017 by morethan

Thursday 12th October is World Arthritis Day #WAD2017 and this year the message is Early arthritisDiagnosis:  ‘Don’t Delay, Connect Today.

The ‘Don’t Delay, Connect Today’ campaign aims to highlight the importance of early diagnosis of rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs) and to encourage people with RMDs, their carer’s, families and friends to seize every opportunity to take action and make a difference to the quality of life of people with RMDs.

With your support, we can work together towards earlier diagnosis and timely access to evidence-based treatment!  Help raise awareness by learning about the symptoms of RMDs:

  • Inflammation indicated by joint swelling, stiffness, redness, and/or warmth
  • Persistent muscle and joint pain
  • Tenderness
  • Extreme fatigue, lack of energy, weakness, or a feeling of malaise
  • Stiffness and restricted range in movement or flexibility
  • Joint deformity
  • Symptoms affecting the internal organs
  • Invisible symptoms e.g. depression and anxiety

Why is early diagnosis important?
Early diagnosis is key to preventing further damage, but RMDs often receive delayed or no diagnosis. This is often due to a lack of awareness – it’s important to know the symptoms of RMDs, and to contact a healthcare professional if you have concerns. If not treated appropriately, daily activities are affected – reducing peoples’ quality of life and affecting physical abilities.

Specialist Housing Care Schemes: Assisted Living and Extra-Care Housing

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017 by morethan

We often get asked about the levels of care available and what is assisted living. Assisted living and extra care schemes provide a more intensive level of support than traditional sheltered housing for older people who need some personal care or other types of help, but who are otherwise able to live safely and independently on their own. There will usually be at least one member of staff on hand 24 hours a day.

The type of care and housing offered will vary from scheme to scheme. Care staff will usually be on call 24 hours a day, to provide personal care as and when you need it. Personal care includes things like washing and dressing, cleaning and shopping but not medical care that would need to be provided by a qualified nurse.

Additional facilities are often available to cater for people who are not able to get out regularly, perhaps including a restaurant, shop, gym, hobby room, and so on. Activities may be arranged regularly, as in sheltered housing, commonly with an emphasis on improving or maintaining residents’ health and wellbeing. Some schemes are able to continue caring for people who develop dementia.

Similar schemes may also be called very sheltered, close care or continuing care communities.

If you would like to find out more or find assisted living in your area visit Housing Care.org.

More Than Mobility is a leading supplier of mobility products. If you or somebody you know is in need of products to aid mobility around the home visit our website we have a huge range of adjustable beds, stair lifts, rise and recline chairs and daily living aids.

Making Websites More Accessible

Saturday, September 30th, 2017 by morethan

Accessibility is the word used to describe whether a product (for example, a website, mobile site, digital TV interface orapplication) can be used by people of all abilities and disabilities – this is called usability.

On a website, accessibility depends on how a person’s disability affects the way they perceive information on a page and how they navigate within and between pages. Elements that affect accessibility include:

Visit the BBC My web my way website for everything you need to make websites and your computer easier to use.  Also on our own More Than Mobility website you can adjust the text size to help with reading.

At More Than mobility we have some useful mobility products that are designed to help the visually impaired. Below are a couple of the products that will help you to read what’s on screen.

Illuminated Magnifying GlassGreat for when you’re getting a little older and finding it hard to read. Available in 2 sizes (Small and Large); these illuminated magnifiers have a small bulb that lights the area.  Price £3.99

reading lightsHigh Vision Reading Lights

We all know how frustrating it can be trying to read in low light and studies have shown that reading in poor light can cause eyestrain and effect your concentration.  These specifically designed high vision reading lights that use near daylight bulbs allow you to read and concentrate for longer, helping to relieve eyestrain and headaches.   Price:  £32.99
