Independent Living Aids For Daily Living

Medical conditions, physical disability, and age encumber life. But the story doesn't have to end there. With different independent living aids for day-to-day activities, anyone can lead a near-normal life. There are services, amenities, and products that make life easier for people with health conditions, disabilities, or the elderly.

Such people can find it hard to turn taps, keys, unplug lights, go up the stairs, and do many other activities that an otherwise physically fit person may find mundane and take for granted. At Get About Mobility, we like to keep it your choice. We want to make daily tasks easy for you, ensuring you live an independent life.

What is Independent Living?

In essence, independent living is living like everyone else β€” having the ability to make decisions that affect your life, and being able to pursue the activities that you choose. It's doing things free from the influence of control from others. As opposed to assisted living, it is excellent for people who want to live freely but want to have access to help when they need it.

Basic utilities, landscaping, dining, grooming and care, maintenance, and even mobility will be easier, giving you a sense of autonomy. Overall, it allows you to live an active engaging life in your old age or when you have a physical disability. Besides an active lifestyle, independent living gives people an enhanced sense of self-respect, equality, acceptance, and self-determination.

Order Now: Keeping it Your Choice

Medical diagnoses or aging doesn't mean that your life is over. There may be times when you may feel prejudiced because of your overreliance on others. Here at Get About Mobility, we strive to put a stop to this cycle. We prefer to focus on personal empowerment.

That's why we have a wide range of products suited for different needs. These can help anyone achieve their preferred range of independence depending on what they are comfortable with. Independent living products come in a wide range of assisted living devices that encourage independence and self-reliance.

We are committed to providing this diverse range of independent living items that can assist people with limited mobility to live their lives more comfortably and independently. Whether you need Therapy Aids, Reaching Aids, Pressure Care, Kitchen Aids, Bathroom Aids, or Dressing & Grooming Aids, we are your number one choice.

Daily Living Aids FAQs

What are daily living aids?

These are devices, products, and equipment used in everyday functional tasks by the elderly or disabled. They are typically known as aids for activities of daily living (AADLs). Sometimes they are also known as basic assistive technology, self-care equipment, or simply daily living aids.

They include a wide range of categories including canes and mobility aids, bathroom disability products, dressing aids, electric lift chairs, household aids, bedroom aids, dining aids, arm supports, and many others. A walking stick, for example, is a daily living aid in the mobility category. This is a simple and efficient way to provide extra assistance for anyone who has balance or walking issues.

What equipment is used to help daily living?

Each person's needs are different, but generally, personal care and food preparation equipment are the most essential. These include plate guards, tableware, two-handed mugs, tap turners, kettle tippers, and more. All these can assist in the kitchen. Personal care equipment includes bathroom aids like toilet chairs, and shower chairs as well as dressing aids.

Other common ones for people with special disabilities include railings, stairlifts, and hoists, among many others. Some people also need furniture raisers in an extensive range of sizes, shapes, and specifications. The bottom line is that different people have different disabilities but Get About Mobility is here to meet everyone at the point of their needs.

What aids are available to maintain independence?

Aids help in achieving independence. There is currently a vast array of products and services, as well as technology, geared at assisting people in managing their everyday chores independently. The list is truly endless from kitchen aids to dressing and grooming aids, bathroom/toilet aids, and many others.

These different types of daily living aids help maintain independence. Mobility aids, for example, are intended to assist people in maintaining their freedom and mobility. They include splints, braces, ramps, walking frames, and wheelchairs, walking frames. Home oxygen services are also equipment that can help you live at home and participate in the community.

How can disabled people become independent?

In one sentence: Breaking the dependency culture. Disabled people have to see themselves as citizens, not patients. If the disabled want to become fully independent, they have to have control over their daily lives, give themselves the freedom of choice and have the same level of self-determination as others.

This begins with everyday living and that's where daily living products come in. These are products to assist in regaining control over one's life. The correct equipment and aids can help you live independently. They can for example raise the height of beds and chairs to make it easy to get out of them, eliminating the need for help, amongst many others.
