Aging In Place – And On the Go

Aging In Place – And On the Go

Aging in place is all the rage now – and so is traveling. Here’s how to do both, even with low mobility.

We’ve all heard about this idea of “aging in place” that seems to be sweeping the nation. The progressively aging baby boomer generation has made it clear that they do not want to spend their twilight years in a nursing home, care facility, or even retirement community. They want to age in their homes comfortably – and most importantly, independently.

Caregivers across the nation are spending hundreds and thousands of dollars on bathroom re-models, heavy-duty adjustable beds, and other expensive mobility products. These purchases are allowing the elderly and individuals with mobility impairments to live safe and mobile lives in the confines of their own home. But what about times when these folks spend the night at a hotel or in the home of a relative or friend?

According to AARP, travel has been and will continue to be an important activity for this generation. Hotels, planes, taxis, and even relative’s homes can all cause significant challenges for someone who lacks mobility. Unless your recently remodeled bathroom or hospital bed can fit in a suitcase, your loved one may be limited as to where and how often he or she can travel.

Stander Inc. has designed a line of products that will keep your loved ones safe and independent as they travel. Take a look at these unique mobility products that are perfect for maintaining independence on the go:
