With the winter nights drawing in, shorter days and worse weather, many people would much rather stay safe in the warm and dry. But sometimes, journeys are essential.
Travelling during winter poses challenges for anyone that suffers from reduced mobility, as well as carers, particularly when moving in and out of the car. As a result, we are delighted to introduce the Car Assist Pack.
The Car Assist Pack is an effective toolkit to aid in helping a person getting in and out of a car with greater ease and comfort. Although designed for all weather conditions, the Car Assist Pack becomes especially effective during winter when the slippery, muddy, windy and wet conditions take hold, especially at night.
This toolkit helps address the main challenge of getting into a vehicle as safely as possible, as well as reducing anxiety about the prospect of travel, whilst also offering additional benefits to an accompanying carer. By including tools to support the weight of the person entering the vehicle, this reduces the risk of injury to the carer and also avoids the carer having to kneel on a potentially wet and muddy floor by using the wipe-clean kneeling pad.
Every individual is different, so it is important to have a solution for every need, which is why this toolkit comes in two varieties:
- Unassisted– For when someone is able get in and out of vehicles independently but would just like a little bit of help.
- Assisted – For those who require support from a carer, a friend of family member.
