Leicester (PRWEB UK) 30 May 2013
Long term health conditions can boost the chance of falls and fractures, with previously welcoming homes often posing an intimidating and dangerous environment to individuals now suffering from impaired mobility.
Oakland Stairlifts, a Leicestershire based supplier of assistive technologies, including stairlift rental and purchase, have plenty of testaments and first hand experiences from their clients of the difficulties old age or physical impairment can create. It’s for this reason that they’ve chosen to publish a new advice series via their company blog, at blog.oaklandstairlifts.com, focused on identifying and rectifying the many safety hazards which can occur around the home.
The new series covers the significance of health issues like osteoporosis, an extremely common condition among older women in particular, which can lead to weak and brittle bones, particularly susceptible to fracturing. A further post goes on to discuss dementia, and how families and sufferers can work together to minimise risk and establish a healthy and safe routine.
Other posts in the blog go on to cover the risks different parts of the home can create, from managing slippery surfaces in the kitchen and bathroom, to identifying tripping hazards moving between rooms. One post is naturally dedicated to discussing the danger stairs pose once mobility is compromised, and the importance of using assistive technologies like stairlifts to overcome them.
Oakland Stairlifts are an independent, family run business with over 20 years of experience supplying and installing stairlifts around the country, to thousands of clients. They make every effort to keep their customers informed, with free home surveys to ascertain how they can acquire assistive technology within a modest budget, and their new advice series detailing home safety is an extension of this effort.
