Helping Elderly Parents Agree to Power Chair Use

Helping Elderly Parents Agree to Power Chair Use

Most people avoid the thought of getting older.  In our hustle-bustle life, and with our tendency to avoid thoughts of aging, we may not take the time to consider asking others for help as we slowly lose our mobility.  However, when simple daily tasks like grocery shopping, collecting the mail, or cooking a meal become nearly impossible, it often changes our understanding of both our capabilities and self-worth. Self-sufficiency is a cornerstone of the way we take pride in ourselves, and admitting we need assistance can be a blow to our dignity.

The first step in dealing with this difficult transition period is to assure our aging family members and friends that their limited mobility has no bearing on their worth. At times it can be difficult to provide the support that our elderly need during this emotional process. Discussing options to regain some independence within the home is a good second step.

This is where Aeroflow can help.

Power wheel chairs and scooters are tools that can empower people and allow them to feel capable and invested in their own lives. At one time, there might have been an impression that power chairs were distracting or that they marked individuals as handicapped, but power mobility devices are now a mainstream option for solving limited mobility. The social stigma attached to wheelchairs is changing rapidly, making them acceptable in all social settings.

Aeroflow makes it easy to consider power mobility options with a trained staff knowledgeable in insurance coverage practices and paperwork requirements, ensuring that patient’s get the full coverage they are entitled to. We also offer payment plans for any associated co-pays and fees, as well as a guarantee of the chair’s continued maintenance. Aeroflow works hard to provide power wheelchairs and scooters and to help patients learn how to utilize their regained freedom.

When looking for the best option to help aging or ailing family members acquire and utilize their power wheelchair or scooter, contact Aeroflow’s specialists to discuss options and to answer any questions you or your loved one might have.
