Taking care of the elderly who can no longer take care of themselves can be a full-time job. Luckily, Well.ca has products every caretaker needs! Below you’ll find various products that will help you take care of your loved one.
LifeSource Blood Pressure Monitor One Step Plus Memory
According to Yale University Clinical Professor of Medicine Dr. Marvin Moser, hypertension, i.e. high blood pressure, affects 2 out of 3 of those over 75 years old. Thus it is important that you periodically check your loved one’s blood pressure to ensure it is normal, or if your loved one has been diagnosed with hypertension, you should check to make sure the condition hasn’t gotten worse. And this product, which is recommended by the Canadian Hypertension Society, makes it easy to notice variations; it records the most recent 30 readings you’ve taken with the machine and even averages them. It makes your life easier; there’s no need to record your loved one’s blood pressure every time you take it and you’ll always be able to find the recordings because they’re in the machine!
Card Health Care Metal Key Ring Pill Tote
Never again will you have to deal with multiple pill bottles or Ziploc bags that result in crushed pills. This easy, lightweight, and durable pill tote makes traveling with your loved one and dispensing his/her medication easy and convenient.
And Well.ca doesn’t stop there with its pill dispensing products. They offer everything from pill organizers of multiple sizes to pill crushers, splitters, and grinders.
AquaSense Bath Safety Rail
This is just one bath safety rail that Well.ca offers. This bath safety product is easy to install and provides the elderly with a sturdy and secure rail to grip while they bathe. As people get older, their joints become painful, their strength deteriorates, and their mobility becomes limited. Rails in their showers/baths are very important because it decreases their chances of falling while standing up and allows them a secure place to hold onto if they feel unstable.
PharmaSystems Med ID Bracelet
A medical ID bracelet is a necessity for the elderly. Anything can happen at any time. It is important that if an elder gets lost or is in a public place and a medical emergency arises that medical personnel know if he/she is allergic to anything or has any preexisting conditions. Well.ca offers several options, including bracelets and necklaces already pre-engraved with heart condition, epilepsy, etc.
This particular bracelet is stainless steel and blank so that you can have your elder’s conditions engraved onto it.
