For some, independence is the ability to walk in the gardens. For others, independence may be the ability to choose your own clothes and dress in privacy. Whatever independence means to you, we are here to help you maintain or return to the most independent level possible. One way you may maintain your independence would be to use adaptive or assistive equipment. Adaptive equipment is used to help individuals with functional limitations, such as mobility and environmental control. Adaptive equipment may be very simple, such as Velcro shoes, or more complex, such as wheelchairs, shower chairs or bedside commodes. Our staff will determine if you need help with certain activities, such as eating, bathing, toileting or dressing. Limitations in these areas can be overcome. Mobility challenges are just that — challenging, but they do not have to prevent your independence or limit your privacy. Together, we will work with you to find the best answer — for your safety, privacy and independence. If you have any questions regarding adaptive equipment, please contact one of our nurses. They will be more than happy to talk with you. ~article provided by My InnerView
