If you struggle with mobility due to aging, a disability, or injury a home care or hospital bed may be beneficial for you. Home care beds are a useful and necessary tool for those recovering from certain surgeries. Speak to your doctor about whether a home care bed would be right for you.
Home care beds make the transition from laying to standing a lot easier. These beds can raise and lower to make getting out of bed and into a mobility device far easier. Hospital beds can raise the headboard to allow for upright positioning without strain. The lowering of the bed can make it less dangerous for those with an injury or fall-risk to get out of bed.
If you have a home caretaker it can take the strain off of them when trying to assist you out of bed. The ease of transitioning from laying to sitting or standing position that a home care bed can offer can reduce the risk of injury for both the patient and caretaker.
Because hospital beds can be adjusted you are able to change the points of pressure to improve circulation for those who spend a lot of time or most of the time in bed. Laying in the same position for long periods of time can result in bedsores and pain. There is a long list of complications that can come with long periods of bed rest such as deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, pneumonia, and more. Being able to easily adjust your position can help prevent many of these conditions.
The great thing about home care beds today is they are no longer heavy and bulky like they once were. The designs have been streamlined for them to be lightweight and easy to move/setup. Although many of today’s hospital beds are lightweight they often still have an impressive weight capacity. You can see some of the great home care bed options we have to offer here.
