Stroke Patients: Safety and Mobility Tips Help You Thrive at Home


Posted on February 20, 2017

Your loved one has just survived a stroke, and they’re just arriving home from the hospital. Their prognosis is good, and you are both are feeling encouraged!

 

The last thing you want to worry about is whether they feel safe and secure in the comfort of their own home. Amramp is here to help, with our top tips and most affordable solutions for safely navigating the home after a stroke.

 

Stroke patients often feel fatigued or disoriented. In an instant, a trip and fall could set your loved one back on the road to recovery. Prevent accidents before they happen by installing ramps to avoid the need to navigate tricky stairways. Ramps are available for short-term rental during recovery. Easier passage means one less thing to worry about! Threshold ramps and safety rails can also provide extra support and easier mobility inside — and outside — of the home.

If a loved one is wheelchair-bound or uses a walker, stair lifts can improve home accessibility tenfold, while offering peace of mind. They are quick to install and easy to use. Stair lifts can provide stroke patients access between floors within a home, between the garage and the home, and beyond, so they are able to make full use of the home they love.

 

Accidents can also happen in the bathroom, where wet surfaces can become slippery. Amramp suggests grab bars and safety rails as important additions for showers, tubs, and toilets.

 

Stroke patients deserve the comfort and convenience that comes with remaining in their own homes. Amramp is here to make sure safety a priority with quick, easy, and affordable mobility solutions.
