Having the proper healthcare equipment and supplies can ease some of the challenges of caring for a loved one. Sometimes home renovations may be required to accommodate their needs. However, there are many products on the market today that can help with everything from showering to transporting. Below are some items to consider:

  • Shower Seats – Sitting in the shower is safer for the elderly as well as those that may have weakness or balance issues.
  • Wheelchairs or Walkers – Your physician or physical therapist will recommend either a wheelchair or walker to help provide some mobility to your loved one.
  • Incontinence Supplies – Along with briefs, you can also purchase bed and chair pads to protect your furniture and minimize the time spent with clean-up.
  • Reacher or Grabber – This handy tool can help those with disabilities to reach and grab hold of small objects such as the TV remote control.

  • Bedside Commode – Often it can be difficult for an individual to make it to the bathroom when they are older or have a disability; consequently, a commode next to the bed will alleviate problems such as falling while trying to get to the bathroom.
  • Bed Assist Handle – This innovative product will help your loved one get in and out of bed thus minimizing the risk of a fall.

 

Whether your loved one has lost their independence because of a physical ailment (such as a stroke) or have slowed down because of age, these products will be of major benefit and help provide care for them.

How to Treat a Sprained Arm or Wrist

Wrist or arm sprains are common but serious injuries. They are most often experienced by athletes or children who lose their balance while playing, running or jumping.

If you think you might have a sprain, it is best to have it checked out by a doctor to determine how severe your injury is. Most often, your doctor will recommend that you wear a splint and will provide you with a prescription for some anti-inflammatory medication to help relieve pain.  However, in some cases, surgery may be necessary.

Once you are home, you’ll want to take precautions to ensure you don’t re-injure your arm or wrist. This means getting lots of rest and restricting the movement of your arm or wrist. You’ll also want to apply ice often to relieve pain and swelling. Continue to support your arm with a brace or sling for added protection.

Finally, you’ll need to return to your daily activities slowly. Inform your doctor or medical professional should you see an increase in pain, bruising or swelling.
