Dinnerware with a difference
If you or someone you know struggles with mobility in their hands or arms, you’ll know full well the frustration that can come with everyday tasks like eating and drinking. Whether you’re dealing with tremors, arthritis, or reduced mobility, sometimes you just need a helping hand. Items like ‘hand steady’ and anti-spill mugs can be a great gift to give. Not only is it something they will get a lot of use out of, but it will also ensure that the person using it can feel comfortable and confident when dining together with the family over the Christmas period.
When mobility issues prevent you being quick on your feet, circulation can be a big problem.
Portable EMS foot massagers stimulate acupressure points on the soles of feet by using electrical impulses. The person using it simply steps on to the mat, and it helps to boost blood circulation and reduce leg muscle weakness.
Reduced mobility can mean spending less and less time on your feet. This can cause lots of other health issues, including swollen feet or ankles. To make things more comfortable, try investing in specialized footwear or wide-fitting slippers. Supportive slippers are designed to minimize the risk of seams rubbing or causing discomfort which is important for people with sensitive or vulnerable feet. They also make for a thoughtful Christmas gift.
Let’s face it, living with reduced walking mobility can make climbing the stairs feel like a chore. Stairlifts can keep a person’s home fully accessible and enable them to maintain their independence for year to come. Giving someone the gift of a stairlift, or simply helping them towards the cost of one can be a wonderful gift that brings peace of mind to the whole family.
