Helping An Old Man

Limited mobility and social isolation often go hand in hand. Elderly adults are particularly vulnerable to depression following losses in mobility, which can lead to isolation and poor health. Thankfully, there are a number of assistive devices that can help the mobility-impaired restore their independence. In fact, some of these devices may even be covered in-part by Medicare. Whether you want to spend more time with your loved ones, remain engaged with your community, or just go shopping for groceries, there’s an assistive device that can help.

Finding the right mobility aid means selecting a highly personalized solution. From the type of terrain you cover in your daily activities, to postural support or other special needs, it’s crucial to find the perfect fit to maximize your mobility. A comparison of the strengths and weaknesses of the most common mobility solutions can help you take the first step towards finding the assistive devices that are right for you.
