What equipment helps you around your mobility. Tell us what is easiest and what is not.
I have several aids to help my day and night activities. Most you may be familiar with but a few might be different.
1-Rollator with seat and pouch to carry things
2-canes of course
3-bedside rail thats portable and can be taken on trips if needed. I use it all the time
3-a sturdy grabber made by Jetta
4-a sit to stand metal system that extends into the back of my lounge chair and has handles to help me stand. It is adjustable for most chairs.
5-a toilet aid that helps me finish my toilet needs. It is called toilet buddy
6-a portable support system that wraps around a toilet that I can support my weight up and down.
I think that’s it.
Those are all awesome recommendations @Jumbo10! I just recently had to use a rollator myself for the first time ever and it got me thinking why I hadn't invested in one sooner! They are such great tools. I found it really handy in the kitchen when trying to cook meals on the stove. I pulled it right up to the stove and sat while boiling water, stirring, etc. Thanks for sharing your aids with us!
