Allergies: The Unbearable Sniffing, Sneezing and Drainage

My name is Marilyn Baker, and I have horrible allergies. I’m 42 years old and have been suffering from allergies since I was a child. I have seasonal and environmental allergies. Allergies plague me year round. When I was young, my parents even moved to a dryer area in the hope of helping me. Over the past eight years, I have done extensive research both through doctors and online. I have managed to come up with some combinations that have helped me a great deal. My allergies aren’t gone, but they have become manageable. I do have to have allergy shots, but I also use some natural remedies. I am happy to be able to share my findings with you here on my blog. I hope you can find some of this of value.

Learn About Some Helpful Mobility Aids

by Clifton Davidson

If you have problems with your mobility then you want to make sure you know about the different mobility aids there are out there. You can learn about some of the different mobility aids on the market in this article, so you can get some that make a difference to your life.

Walker bags

If you use a walker you can get a bag that attaches to the walker. This allows you to carry some of your smaller items with you safely so you don't have to try juggling them in your hands.

Transfer handles

When you have mobility issues it can be hard for you to get up from your bed and to lie down. A transfer handle has an end that fits under the mattress and another that provides you with a bar you can grab onto in order to easily move yourself around and get yourself out of bed.

Grabbing sticks

Mobility issues can affect your balance and make it dangerous for you to reach above your head. Also, it may be very hard for you to bend to pick something up from the ground. Grabbing sticks can take these worries away.  They give you an extended reach and you will be able to use the handle to control the pinchers by clenching it.

Handheld shower heads

A handheld showerhead makes it easier for you to get yourself fully clean in the shower if you are having a hard time moving yourself all around, trying to catch the water from the regular showerhead.

Walk-in bathtubs

A walk-in bathtub can be a great addition to a home if there is someone with mobility issues. Not only will this type of tub provide a safer bathing environment, but it also offers a comfortable experience. These tubs have seats that contour to the natural shape of your back, jets to provide you with a whirlpool bath and non-slip seats and floors for extra safety.

Comfort height toilets

Comfort height toilets are slightly taller than regular ones. Those few extra inches can make it much easier for someone with mobility problems to sit down and get up without added stress on weak legs or sore knees.

Now that you are familiar with some of the many mobility aids you have access to, you will want to decide which ones will help you enjoy more freedom, comfort and safety. Creating a safer space will help you gain back some of your freedom. Contact a mobility aid provider, like Twin City Stair Lifts, for more information.
