We welcome Government plans to help elderly live at home longer

Posted in: 6th September 2010 by erica

The Government has said in an announcement recently that they plan for greater use of home adaptations as a way of allowing people to stay in their homes for much longer. We at One Stop Mobility believe this could be a way of saving the Government millions of pounds on elderly care costs, and more importantly, improve quality of life for a generation who are living longer and want to stay at home.

The new Government’s pledge could dramatically change the way we think about long term care for the elderly. We believe better use of assisitive technology and equipment could transform people’s homes. Stairlifts, bathing aids, beds, pressure area care products and hoists, along with wheel chairs, hand rails and many simple aids to daily living can make a real difference and can give independence to individuals.
