Mobility Products to Celebrate Parkinson’s Awareness Week

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015 by morethan

It’s Parkinson’s Awareness Week (20th – 26th April) and More Than Mobility have been long supporters of this campaign and we have many mobility products suited to those suffering with Parkinson’s disease.

The organisers Parkinson’s UK has been working to find a cure and improve life for Parkinson’s sufferers for the past 40 years. They have a UK-wide network of information and 1000s of support workers working for them as they state that “Every hour somebody in the UK is told that they have Parkinson’s”. They bring people with Parkinson’s, their carers and families together via a network of local groups, website and a free, confidential helpline.

Information and support workers are trained to provide:

  • up-to-date information on Parkinson’s
  • emotional support to you and your family
  • information about and links to your local services

You can arrange a home, hospital, or residential nursing care visit from an information and support worker or phone them for support and information. If you have Parkinson’s, or you know someone who has, you can contact them on 0808 800 0303.

Here at More Than Mobility we don’t want any disability to stop you from living independently and we would like to make getting out and about easier and less painful for you.  We have a wide range of useful products to get you around the house or when you are out and about so do take a look at today!

See below for some useful daily living aids to add to your Parkinson’s Everyday Kit:

  • Seat Belt Reacher – convenient handle to help those who struggle to reach and grab their car seat belt
  • Suction Cup Grab Bars – provide strong hold grab bars for bathrooms or toilets.
  • Assist A Tray – provides assistance in and out of your own chair.  Height adjustable with easy stand safety handle and swivel tray.
  • X Fold Rollator – stylish lightweight rollator that fold easily into compact size.
  • Bellavita Bath Lift – helps with getting in and out of the bath.  Light and easy to install and operate.

Best wishes
