When an Arthritis Aid is like a Personal Care Assistant

It’s not uncommon for arthritis to promote a decline in your parent’s abilities. You may start to notice that they arepersonal care assistant having difficulty buttoning their shirt or blouse, putting on their shoes, or turn appliances on or off. Despite these challenges your mother or father is cognitive and wants to remain independent. A personal care assistant could help them on a regular basis, but there is another solution:  what if you could provide them with arthritis aids?

The personal care assistant is very well informed in many of the arthritis aids that could enhance your parent’s life. Think about that shirt or blouse they are having difficulty with as their fingers are too stiff and achy to button. Consider purchasing a button and zipper hook. The handgrip is large and soft, and the gadget is easy to use, allowing your parent some privacy when getting dressed. The same is for putting on their shoes. Bending over may be difficult, but a shoe and sock aid will provide them the ability to do this for themselves.

There are other matters around the house that we often don’t consider, such as turning on and off appliances. Not only can this be a safety hazard, but it also may be preventing your mother or father from preparing a meal. What if you could find a universal knob that will assist them in turning the knobs on the stove, microwave, dishwasher and other household appliances? Do you think your parent would feel self-regulated having the ability to do these tasks on their own?

Families often hire a personal care assistant when their parent is having difficulty around the house, but if your mom or dad does not have to depend on the caregiver for every single need they might be happier. Studies indicate the happier and more content seniors are; they tend to remain cognitive and healthier as they enjoy participating in activities. The aids discussed in this article are just a few of the many that may keep your parent more involved in completing their tasks wherever they live in Dayton.
