Taking our ability to move freely within our homes for granted is something many of us do. However, when faced with mobility challenges, even simple daily tasks can become incredibly difficult. From moving around the house and using the restroom to maintaining hygiene and self-care, individuals with limited mobility face significant obstacles that can make aging safely at home difficult. Engaging in activities as basic as sitting on a couch and enjoying a TV show can seem like a daunting task.
Many people end up transitioning from their homes to assisted living facilities solely because they can no longer navigate their own living spaces. Unfortunately, this transition can have profound impacts on mental health. Most individuals prefer to remain at home, especially if they don’t require constant care and have specific emotional or mental needs.
At Mobility123, we are dedicated to providing tools and devices that improve safety, comfort, and independence, allowing people to continue living in their homes. Through these modifications, we extend the period during which individuals can age in place, possibly until the end of their lives.
Mobility limitations can occur gradually or suddenly. As individuals age, they often experience issues with balance and strength. Installing grab bars in bathrooms and handrails in hallways can significantly enhance their independence. Similarly, items like shower grab bars, shower chairs, and handheld showerheads can greatly facilitate bathing for those who need to remain seated. These modifications are beneficial even for individuals without significant health challenges but are simply aging gracefully.
For many seniors, the use of wheelchairs becomes a part of their lives. Wheelchair lifts enable smooth entry and exit from homes, providing essential accessibility. Moreover, stairlifts offer a practical solution for individuals with mobility limitations, allowing them to access multiple floors within their residences.
At Mobility123, we understand the importance of tailoring modifications to your specific needs. We respect your budget and can assist you in prioritizing changes that help with aging safely at home, focusing on the most crucial adjustments first and gradually adding more as needed. These devices contribute to creating safer homes, empowering seniors to age in place, and providing family members with peace of mind.
