Caring For Caregivers

Caring For Caregivers

According to the National Alliance for Caregiving, approximately 43.5 million caregivers have provided unpaid care to an adult or child in the last 12 months.

Of family caregivers who provide complex chronic care:
46% perform medical and nursing tasks; More than 96% provide help with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as personal hygiene, dressing and undressing, bathing, getting in and out of bed. For more statistics visit here.

Proper bathroom safety equipment promotes safety and relieves stress, strain and aches for the caregiver. Whether you're in need of care or providing care for another, we are here to help.

Caring For Your Eagle Health Supplies Benches and Chairs

While Eagle Health products are made to endure daily use and the test of time, there are a number of ways to care for your bench to ensure that you have an optimal experience every time. To keep you informed and feeling your best, here are some care tips from our very own Eagle Health Supplies professionals.

General Cleaning & Upkeep

We highly recommend wiping down your chair or bench after each use to keep away any soap scum, mineral deposits or watermarks. It’s simple and quick, and all you need is a soft cloth, warm water, and mild soap. You may also use a soft cloth and any non-bleach cleaner. (Bleach will discolor your seat.) Make sure you get your legs, sliding rails, and seat when wiping down, and please do not use bleach to clean your bench.

Seniors Aging In Place

Seniors Aging In Place

According to a survey conducted by AARP in 2014, 87% of adults over the age of 65 want to age in place, and 80% believe their current residence is the place they will always live.
When it comes to aging in place, there are appropriate questions to ask. Is the home a safe place for a senior to live alone? Are family caregivers capable of providing adequate care? What obstacles are there to making the home livable and accessible for the long term?

With the right help and equipment, physical residences can be adapted to be both safe and accessible, making it possible for many seniors to age in the comfort of their own homes.
