Patient lifts offer a safe way of raising or lowering any patient from a bed onto a chair or vice versa. They can even help get someone off the ground.

Bed rails are an important part of staying safe when getting in and out of bed. Rails are also available for showers, toilets and other areas of the home so you can get up and down without fear of slipping or falling.
Shower benches have become more advanced over the years, now including comfortable backs and slip-free seats, as well as armrests, to help you relax. Installing a shower sprayer with a long hose at seated height will make bathing even easier.
