Gift Independence

We may be coming older, but we still love the magic of Christmas. One of the best things about the Christmas season – besides food and fun – is the opportunity to catch up with families and friends.

Next best thing is the exchanging of gifts. Who has not received a Christmas gift that they either did not like or did not want? So, during this Covid-Normal Christmas Season, consider a gift that extends the independence of the recipient. Gifts those ameliorate physical independence, mobility, or the self-esteem.

When you have older family members visiting for this Christmas, ensure that the experience is least inconvenient for you as well as your guests. Reviewing the accessibility of the venue for a person with a physical challenge is a great place to start. Consider keeping a height adjustable chair or an aid at the toilet.

Our best Christmas story last year was that of Mary and John. Mary had trouble getting on, sleeping and getting up from their standard queen bed she shared with John. She had experimented various solutions with little success. John was not ready for an electric home care bed. So, they kept putting the decision off, until their family found a solution in the form of a Christmas present that was acceptable to both John and Mary. Mary received a full function electric bed in a colour and style of her choice with the perfect mattress, while John got a companion bed of the same style and colour with no electric functions. The best part of the story was that Mary’s improved sleep on the new mattress enhanced her overall well-being, that John is now open to the concept when he needs one.
