What are daily living aids?
Daily living aids, also known as assistive devices, are tools and equipment that help people with disabilities or impairments perform everyday tasks. They can make it easier to complete tasks that may be difficult or impossible without assistance. Daily living aids can be used for a variety of activities, including dressing, bathing, eating, toileting, getting around, and using the telephone.

Here are some examples of daily living aids:

  • Reachers and grabbers: These tools help people to reach items that are out of their reach.
  • Long-handled shoehorns: These help people to put on their shoes without bending over.
  • Raised toilet seats and grab bars: These make it easier to get on and off the toilet and provide support while sitting.
  • Shower chairs and walkers: These make it easier to bathe and move around in the bathroom.
  • Voice-activated devices: These allow people to control their environment and communicate with others using their voice.
  • Assistive technology devices: Such as augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices, can help people with speech impairments communicate effectively.

All of these kinds of daily living aids can be purchased at MobilitySmart. There are many different types of aids available, so it is important to find the ones that meet your individual needs and preferences.

 

What aids are available for older people?
There are a wide range of aids available to help older people live independently and comfortably. These aids can help with mobility, daily living tasks, and communication.

 

Mobility Aids

  • Mobility scooters: Mobility scooters provide a convenient and comfortable way to get around for older adults who have difficulty walking long distances or climbing stairs.
  • Rollators: Rollators are three-wheeled walkers that provide support and stability while walking. They are a good option for older adults who need more support than a cane or walker.
  • Crutches: Crutches are a good option for older adults who need to offload weight from one or both legs. They require more balance than a cane or walker, but they can provide more support.
  • Canes: Canes are a good option for older adults who need a little extra support when walking. They come in a variety of styles, including straight canes, quad canes, and adjustable canes.
