Everyone always seems to think that they will be able to take care of themselves with no assistance late into their lives. However, often times fate seems to have different ideas about this. Whether it’s surgery, age, an accident, or something else, sometimes it seems as though getting around the house to take care of tasks and chores is more of a hassle than it’s worth.
If you begin to notice that a loved one is beginning to feel this way, it may be time to consider mobility assistance in the form of a power wheelchair. A power wheelchair may be just what is needed to help restore freedom and mobility in their life. Here are a few signs that a power wheelchair may be needed:
Household chores seem to pile up
If simple tasks doing the dishes, cleaning clothes, taking out the trash, or filing the mail are being neglected, it may not be because of laziness. If moving around the house to take care of these tasks is becoming increasingly difficult. The lack of ability to take on these tasks can put a damper on one’s ego and cause them to fear doing the tasks. A power wheelchair through insurance can help solve this issue
Balance issues or taking bad falls
If you or someone you know has balance issues, frequent lightheadedness or struggles to move around because of the fear or falling over, it may be time to consider power mobility as an option. This is especially true if someone has taken a serious fall which has caused injury which can further limit mobility.
Depression and lack of interest in hobbies or activities
Because mobility issues can prevent one from doing the things that they enjoy, that absence of enjoyment can cause depression and eventually disinterest in hobbies. This can be dangerous not just for their physical health, but their mental health as well. Restoring the ability to move about freely can help with this greatly.
