There are many lift devices available for persons with mobility or health issues. Getting in and out of bed may be especially challenging because of joint and muscle stress that compounds overnight. Assisting a heavy patient may prove difficult for caretakers who risk back injuries with awkward lifting. Hoyer lifts are useful for safe transport in and out of bed or the bath and can be free standing, secured to a wall or ceiling, or mounted on wheels, depending on the custom needs of the patient. When used at home, they can be installed throughout the house in combination with other mobility devices for safe transfers. Although relatively expensive compared to other models, power lifts are the safest for caretakers and equipped with a manual handle in the event of power outage. Ceiling lifts are manufactured for safety, are affordable, and easy to install. They are a long-term solution designed for bedrooms, bathrooms, or other rooms in the house. Caring for a loved one at home can be challenging. At Lakeside Medical Supplies, we want to make home health care as easy as possible by providing the medical supplies you need at competitive prices.
