Homecare Beds For Long Term Use
Are you or a loved one going through a period of medical care requirements? Perhaps you're dealing with circumstances where more time in bed is called for. Maybe a caregiver is required to provide adequate treatment and care. In such cases, potentially the most valuable piece of equipment involved is the bed. Often people think of long term care beds as belonging only in a hospital or institutional setting, however in certain situations it may be deemed necessary to have the same capabilities inside the home.
One of the main benefits of a homecare bed for long term use is articulation. A patient might find it ideal to be able to easily sit up in bed, have their legs elevated, or both. Tilting is also possible such as Trendelenburg or reverse Trendelenburg positions. Height adjustment can be a great benefit as well; raise the bed up higher to allow the caregiver more access to the patient without bending or stooping, or lower it to reduce the risk of injury from falling out of bed. The quiet electric motors allow all of these adjustments at the push of a button without the need for tools or tough to use crank systems.
Bariatric Beds are available for patients with that requirement as well as Low Beds for patients with limited maneuverability or fall risks. Besides the main features already discussed, you may also want to consider other aspects such as maneuverability, bed rails, patient lifts, infection control coatings, etc. Every situation is different, please take some time to compare these options and we're confident that whatever the needs we will have a perfect solution.
