Patient lifts are designed to lift and transfer seniors when they are unable to do it on their own. These medical devices provide many benefits, including reduced risk of injury to patients and caregivers. The key is to make sure these lifts are operated by someone who is trained and has experience with such lifts.

Many older adults are able to remain in their home as they age. However, that doesn’t mean that they are always able to get around their homes as easily as they once did. Mobility issues are an unfortunate side effect of aging and can impact a senior’s level of independence and make daily responsibilities much more challenging.

When an elderly parent wants to remain in their own home, most adult children will do all that they can to make that possible. When a parent has mobility issues, however, many children throw in the towel and decide that “aging in place” simply isn’t possible.
