One of the most difficult parts of ageing is losing mobility. As people become older, activities such as shopping, cleaning, and even walking may not come as easy. However, focusing on improving mobility can help take a stand against the effects of ageing. How can mobility be improved?
Take advantage of assistance offered by walking aids such as walking sticks and wheeled walkers:
Improving mobility may require taking advantage of assistance offered by walking aids. Canes and walkers are two examples of walking aids that can help improve mobility. For greater distance, wheelchairs and mobility scooters can be useful.
Make changes to the living space:
To improve mobility, it may be useful to make changes to the living space such as adding rails and ramps to the entrance of the home. Stairways can also be amended to help maintain mobility while in the home.
Focus on preventing falls:
Improving mobility will lessen the chances of falling and automatically improve mobility. Fall prevention measures like using walking sticks, walking frames and wheeled walkers will be very helpful in improving mobility.
Things to consider when choosing a walking aid:
- Medical condition and the way it affects movement
- How will the medical condition and its effects change over time
- Height, shape and weight
- The environment that most time spent in- home, community, small bathroom/toilet
- Transporting the walking aid
