Aids for Daily Living (ADLs) can help with some of the day to day activities that may become difficult as we age. The most common uses of these aids are getting dressed, opening doors, reaching for things, getting out of bed, eating and cooking. Daily Living Aids can help you live a more independent lifestyle.
We all have trouble with buttons and zippers from time to time – a buttonhook or zipper pull can make this easier. Shoes and socks can be exceptionally challenging. We suggest using a sock or stocking aid to put on socks and elastic laces for your shoes.
Rubber doorknob grips and key turners can add some extra “oomph” when needing to turn troublesome door handles.
Reaching for Things
Bending at the knees or hips over time can be painful and difficult. This is why we recommend using reachers – it’s like a Go-Go-Gadget arm to make your life a little bit easier.
Getting Out of Bed
We want to make sure everyone has access to a good night sleep as it is a key component to health. We offer Bed Assist Rails that are easy to install at home to help you get in and out of bed.
Eating independently can be made simpler with a few ADL items such as cutlery with thicker handles, scoop plates, cup holders and bibs.
No matter how our body changes, we believe in making your cooking experience a more independent one. We offer helpful products like single-hand cutting boards, easy-to-use can openers and ergonomic cookware.
Most Aids for Daily Living (ADLs) are relatively inexpensive and can make a world of difference. Contact our customer service team and we will find the best solution for your daily living needs.
