As many people age, they lose the ability to independently get in and out of bed amongst other everyday tasks. When this happens, it often means that the elderly person will need a caregiver to help them complete their tasks. This means that you as the caregiver will need to be with the elderly person nearly 24/7 to make sure they are safe and have everything they need. If you have ever done any caregiving work, you will understand that caring for an elderly person is a very rewarding experience but it can also be physically taxing.
When you are a caregiver for an older person, you may be looking for a solution that will make your work a little bit easier and keep the elderly person safe in the event that you cannot be with them. This is where our EZ Lift Bed comes in! Our adjustable bed helps caregivers in many ways, which we will detail below. Continue reading for helpful tips and ways that our adjustable bed can help caregivers and elderly people.
How our adjustable bed helps caregivers
Makes moving the elder person easier
Moving someone who cannot get up on their own can be nearly impossible for a caregiver, but our adjustable bed helps caregivers by making it easier to move the elderly person into a standing, sitting, or laying position. If the elderly person still has dexterity in their hands, they have the ability to use the attached remote and lower or raise themselves up in their adjustable bed. This is one of the biggest benefits of our EZ Lift Bed for both caregivers and users.
Keeps the elderly person safe when the caregiver is not around
One of the most important things about adjustable beds for elderly people is that they are very safe. It can be hard to leave an elderly person in bed all day while you go out and do errands or take care of other responsibilities, because this may put your loved one at risk when it comes time for them to get up on their own accord. Fortunately, our adjustable bed has built-in safety features that will keep the user safely seated inside the bed no matter which position they are in. This means you can return home knowing your adjustable bed ensures that your loved one will not fall out of their adjustable bed when they are left alone!
Gives the elderly person a little bit more independence
Another underrated benefit of the EZ Lift Bed is that it can give the elderly person you are taking care of a little bit more independence. By being fully adjustable and including an attached remote, the elderly person has the ability to enter and exit the bed at their own will. The bed moves at a safe speed so there is no chance of the elderly person falling out as they are adjusting it. Giving the elderly person you take care of can be good for their mental state and help them feel better about their situation. We recommend showing the elderly person how to use the EZ Lift Bed and making sure they are operating it correctly in the event you are not available to help them get in and out.
Reduces the chance of bedsores
Bedsores are a major concern for elderly people who have trouble getting out of bed or sitting up on their own. However, adjustable beds can be helpful in reducing the risk of this happening because they allow them to move around more freely and adjust according to their needs. While adjustable beds cannot prevent all cases of bedsores, it certainly reduces the risk of them happening.
Provides peace of mind for caregivers
Our EZ Lift adjustable bed provides the feeling of peace of mind and makes caregiver work less stressful. If you are a caregiver who is taking care of an older person, adjustable beds can help ensure that your loved one remains safe and comfortable as they age into the later stages of life. You will also know that if you need to leave the elderly person you are caring for, they will be safe and sound in their adjustable bed. This is the safest type of bed for an elderly person who has mobility issues because it allows them to raise into a sitting position to stand up rather than having to bend over and lay down. With this bed, your mind will be at ease as you take care of your loved one.
