Is it Time to Consider a Mobility Aid?

Is it Time to Consider a Mobility Aid

This can oftentimes be a touchy subject to bring up to an aging parent, a loved one or even oneself. The thought that you are getting older and can’t move like you used to can be a scary one. However, reduced mobility is an inevitability for many people, and a walker, rollator, or wheelchair can help make that transition much smoother. The use of a mobility aid can also promote healthy aging by allowing its user to continue to partake in meaningful social, cultural, and physical activities.

If you feel like the use of a mobility aid may be the right path for you or your loved one, there are a few things to take into consideration before you choose a home health care pharmacy to supply it.

Location, Location, Location

Where are they located? Even if the company claims to be nationwide, they should still have a distribution point close to where you live. Otherwise, it could take an extended period of time to get your mobility aid.

Check Out Their Selection

Do they offer the products that best serve your needs? When it comes to mobility aids, there is a very large variety to choose from. Whether you are best served with a Nexus 3 Rollator or a Vaughan(what’s this?) Wheelchair, the pharmacy you’re dealing with needs to supply the product that is ideal for your situation.

The Price is Right

What about the price? Depending on your insurance provider, there may be an out-of-pocket cost associated with getting a walker, wheelchair, rolling bed or other mobility aid. Be sure to investigate your coverage options before making a purchase.

It’s good to know that there is a government program available called ADP (Assistive Devices Program) that. This program allows eligible individuals to qualify for government funding based on assessment done by an authorized professional. The government will pay 75% of the cost while the individual will only pay 25% out of pocket. Call one of our home health care specialists at Adapt Home Health Care today to find out if you are eligible.

Can They Deliver?

While this question may seem insignificant for the child of an aging parent, this is a pretty sticky issue for people in need of mobility products. The fact that the individual has trouble getting around can make having to travel to pick up a walker or wheelchair difficult, if not impossible. Finding a reliable company that will come to your door with a mobility device is essential.

If you or a loved one is having difficulty getting around, whether it be walking long distances or going upstairs, it might be time to look into home health care products that can assist with mobility. At Adapt Home Health Care, we carry all kinds of walkers, rollators, wheelchairs, scooters and other mobility aids that can assist you or your loved one in getting around.

A couple of weeks ago we were searching online for some medical equipment for our home. We decided to try Gore I.D.A after reading the reviews. (even though there were other places we could have went to that are much closer to our home)We were not disappointed! The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable.

Outstanding service and such pleasant staff. We were referred here by a physiotherapist as my mother required a compression wrap for her legs. Although it was out of the way we decided to give it a try. Trisha was so helpful and knew exactly what we were looking for. Items ordered arrived in very short order and Trisha was always very accommodating with her time.
