For seniors all over Canada, aging in place is much preferred over the alternative. Living in a long-term care facility can provide an older adult with excellent care. However, the comforts of home are eliminated. Aging in place can be made so much easier when a senior’s needs are catered to. The need to have a comfortable and restful sleep is among the most important of those needs.
With an adjustable bed, a senior’s sleep can be so much better. Electric adjustable beds are known to help improve breathing, comfort and safety while sleeping. As well, they make eating, writing, reading and watching television more comfortable. Is it time you get a hospital bed for your home?
It allows for much more comfortable sleeps.
An adjustable bed allows for one’s head and foot position to be adjusted using a handheld remote control. With it, a user can find the perfect comfort and support position. Adjustable bed frames are available in a variety of widths from twin to king size adjustable beds. They also come with many additional features such as deluxe mattresses, massage and special woodwork. These all combine to help older adults experience very comfortable sleeps.
According to New York’s Merrick Surgical Supplies & Home Care, “if you have issues with getting comfortable due to aches or soreness, an adjustable bed is your new best friend.”
It keeps your elderly loved one safer.
Has the senior in your home ever fallen out of bed? Does your aging parent have trouble getting in and out of bed? Adjustable beds do exactly as their name implies. They are adjustable, meaning they can raise and lower with the touch of a few buttons. Lowering the bed makes it a lot safer for seniors who may roll out of bed while sleeping. It also makes it easier to get into bed at night.
“Hospital beds are made to provide complete protection,” states Reena Taneja on MindStick.com, “There are provisions made so that you do not roll over and fall in your sleep. The beds are incredibly sturdy. The extra supports allow you to adjust your position comfortably.”
It makes transferring care recipients super easy.
For caregivers, having an adjustable bed at home is a dream come true. These beds make it so much easier to transfer an elderly loved one from a seated or standing position to a lying position. Because the bed can be lowered, it does not insist upon a person being lifted in order to get into the bed comfortably.
“Transferring and repositioning can be physically taxing, so having a bed that can be raised and lowered while automatically repositioning will save them time and energy,” states Merrick Surgical Supplies & Home Care, “If you’re living independently, hospital beds will make sitting up, laying down and getting out of bed much easier than before.”
