There is a wonderful group of Canadians who span across this great country of ours who need a little bit more help with their everyday activities than the rest of us. Many people who are part of this group are seniors, but it’s not exclusive to our nation’s older adults. You don’t have to be elderly to have a mobility issue or a health concern. Therefore, there’s certainly no age restriction for those who require medical supplies.
Individuals who have particular significant health concerns are generally those who require medical supplies. Such supplies as ostomy products, compression stockings, incontinence products and catheters are in high demand throughout Canada. Over the course of the next few months, Advantage Home Health Solutions will proudly be stocking incontinence and compressions stockings.
Comfort is key.
We know how important it is to help those with such health issues to live as comfortable as possible. This is why we’re so mindful of the many benefits of stair lifts. They’re not designed exclusively for those who have concerns about their strength and balance. While most users of stair lifts are those who use such mobility solutions as wheelchairs, walkers and canes to get around, stair lifts are just as useful to those who regularly use medical supplies.
An individual who requires incontinence products, for example, may find it difficult to get to the washroom in a timely fashion. This can especially be a concern if the washroom is located on a level of the home other than where the individual is. If getting up and down the stairs puts any unnecessary pressure on the person, a stair lift can help provide a smooth journey up and down the stairs to help the individual reach his/her destination in a safer way.
We have many great stair lift options.
They include our FreeCurve stair lift, which is the most luxurious continuous rail stair lift on the market today. Because of this, you may assume that it’s quite pricey, however, it’s widely regarded as being a high-quality product that doesn’t force customers to break the bank. Click here to see the amazing seating options for safety and aesthetics. Watch for the special configurations to accommodate narrow staircases and limited lower exit points.
It’s important to note that stair lifts don’t have to be inside only. We also carry exterior stair lifts that are heralded for their ability to handle the extreme prairie weather. Handicare offers two exterior stair lifts that are great at tackling the weather in Western Canada. Both are fitted with specialized sealed coated PCBs (printed circuit boards.)
In addition to the wild swings in temperature, humidity is a critical issue especially for dry cold that causes static electricity shocks. Advantage Home Health Solutions customers have successfully relied on our exterior stair lifts throughout the year. We recommend covering the seat and carriage when they are not in use and locking and removing the security key. Clearing the staircase from snow during the winter is important too. And if possible, covering the rail is ideal.
