The holiday season is a time for families to reunite as a unit and spend some quality time with each other.  There are a lot of families that this may be the only time a year it happens.  As kids grow up and start families of their own, the amount of time they spend at mom and dad’s house dwindles.  With that said, it is not uncommon for kids to go home to their parent’s home over the holidays to discover one of their parents having some mobility issues.  Jayhawk Pharmacy is here to offer mobility solutions solutions that can help in these circumstances.

Lift Chairs
Lift chairs are extremely helpful. As people age, their joints start to deteriorate and don’t always function as well as they used to.  The joints that people have the most problem with are their hips and their knees.  Lift chairs look like normal recliners, but they have the added benefit of helping people get in and out of the seated position.  This takes some of the pressure off of the joints to support people during the process of standing up from or sitting down in their favorite comfy chair.

Stair Lift
Similar with the thinking of the lift chairs, stair lifts can help minimize some of the stress on those lower-body joints by helping them go up and down stairs much more efficiently.  These lifts are easily installed by a professional and don’t take up much room in your stairwell.

At Jayhawk pharmacy, we want to help with the needs that you or your loved ones may have with mobility.  For other products and information, please check out the product catalog on our website.  From all of us here at Jayhawk Pharmacy, we wish you all a happy and safe holiday season.
