Independent living support aids helping those with their freedom

Even when people get older and less mobile, many still want to enjoy independent living in their own homes and Hospital Direct can help them achieve this through a range of products available for use in the house or when travelling in vehicles.

At home, the Glide and Lock range includes a slide sheet that helps someone sit further back in a chair/wheelchair and, through an integral locking mechanism, prevents them from slipping down. This can be used independently, or with assistance by one or two carers, depending on need.

For many, independent supported living also includes being able to go out for leisure or attend appointments. Whether they can drive themselves or are passengers, many may need support getting in and out of vehicles and that’s where Hospital Direct’s car assist pack can help.

Maintaining dignity with tasks such as washing is also important for maintaining independent living and that is where Hospital Direct’s Bed Bath Soap Sponges are ideal for patients who need a full body wash but are unable to use a shower.

These disposable sponges, which are unique to Hospital Direct, need just one tablespoon of water for a patient to complete an independent, full-body wash in bed, offering independent living support.

See our In/Out of Cars page for more details of how we can provide help for people who need help accessing vehicles for leisure or to attend medical appointments.
