World Grandparent’s Day – Thank those who do Everything for You

World Grandparents Day is Here! More than ever, it’s a day to be with them and thank them for everything they have done and are doing for us. For grandparents, being with them is the best way to show that we care about their well-being. However, as a child, grandchild, nephew or caregiver, it is natural for you to feel that you can always do more for them.

Loja Ortopédica has a wide variety of products that help improve grandparents’ daily lives, making it easier, more practical and worry-free. You can, whenever you want, browse the online store and discover some of these products. If you can’t do it now, don’t worry. In today’s article, we leave three products that effectively improve your grandparents’ daily lives.

Armchairs for Elderly

The geriatric or hospital armchairs are equipment that can effectively improve the quality of life of your grandparents. With age, some health problems may appear, which often force the elderly to spend a lot of time sitting.

However, sofas and chairs are not meant to be seated for a long time and can become uncomfortable over time, hampering the well-being of the elderly.

A chair for the elderly respects the limitations of the elderly and offers hours of comfort.

Thus, the elderly can read, watch TV or take a nap comfortably and without feeling the usual pain caused by chairs and sofas. Before choosing an armchair for your grandparents, take some time to choose the armchair that meets the needs of the elderly.

For example, pay attention to the width of the seat, the possibility of raising the legs, with or without wheels, etc. In fact, some models even help the elderly to get up and sit down safely.

If you would like to offer a geriatric chair to your grandparents and do not know which model to choose, we recommend that you read the article How to choose hospital chairs for the elderly.

Orthopedic Pillows for the Elderly

Still on issues of comfort, convenience and well-being, there is another item that can make your grandparents lives much easier — pillows.

Orthopedic pillows, whether for sleeping or just for support, are the perfect allies to make grandparents more comfortable.

Sleeping pillows are, on the one hand, of firm structure and, on the other hand, extremely moldable. This means that they adjust to the contour of the cervical spine, are able to relieve pressure and allow a total relaxation of the muscles.

Support pillows, on the other hand, have a set of properties that relieve pressure and ensure better rest, helping with neck, back and joint pain problems.

The pillows you will find at Loja Ortopédica are made of materials that mold perfectly to the elderly person’s body, allowing their muscles to relax.

When it comes to orthopedic pillows, the hard part is choosing. Made of foam, viscoelastic or anti-bedsore material, in wedge, round, square, triangular or roll, for cervical, lumbar or coccyx support…

If you choose an orthopedic pillow for your grandparents, first understand what your difficulties and limitations are. Thus, you will be able to select a model that will help you to overcome difficulties or that will help you to have a more comfortable daily life.

Walking Frames for the Elderly

Walkers are walking aids, that is, equipment that help the elderly and people with limited mobility to move with independence, dexterity and confidence. Therefore, they are also a good alternative for the elderly..

In addition to the walker, you can consider other equipment that helps to improve the mobility of the elderly, such as walking sticks, canes with a seat, tripods, quadsor even a scooter.

Renewing the walker or cane by offering a more modern equipment will definitely leave a smile on grandparents lips. Loja Ortopédica®
