Being a caregiver for a senior loved one can be a very difficult job, emotionally and physically. We highly recommend that you seek help from family, friends and your community throughout this process.
We also want you to know that there are many products and tools available that can help you to make caregiving just a bit easier and safer.
Probably one of the oldest tools used by many medical staff throughout the world is the gait belt. It can help you safely transfer someone or to assist them while they are walking with or without a mobile device.
If you are caring for a bedridden person or someone who is unable to assist you with mobility issues, a hoyer lift may be a safe solution.
Another great product to help anyone who has fallen and has trouble getting back up are lifting cushions. We can recommend these Mangar products.
The Raizer is a revolutionary new manually operated, mobile lifting chair which can help someone who has fallen and injured themselves. It’s much safer than the traditional methods of handling these accidents because it requires only one assistant to set up as well!
This product is perfect for when the person who has fallen is not injured and able to lift themselves onto the ResQUP steps.
