Why rent home care equipment?
A large number of us will require the use of a mobility aid at some point in our life, whether as a result of decreased physical capacity, illness or injury. Mobility aids offer independence, comfort and stability, and can even aid rehabilitation.
In many situations, you only need to use a mobility aid for a short amount of time, as you recover from injury or surgery, or if you experience a temporary illness or medical condition. In this situation, home care equipment hire offers an affordable alternative to purchasing outright.
For example, if you only need to use a wheelchair for a few weeks while you recover from knee surgery, you likely don’t want to buy a top-of-the-line model. However, even if you do consider buying a wheelchair, basic models may not offer the support and stability you need, which could affect your recovery.
Wheelchair hire ensures you get the features you need in a wheelchair, at an affordable cost. Hiring also means you avoid the hassle of finding somewhere to store your equipment when you’re no longer using it or having to find a second-hand buyer.
Home health care equipment hire is also a great way to trial a product before buying to make sure it’s right for you. Hiring a mobility scooter, wheelchair or lift recliner chair for a few weeks allows you to see if it meets your needs and to understand the lifestyle benefits it offers.
