Mobility

A wide range of mobility aids to keep you on the move

Most forms of dementia will at some point affect the areas of the brain that are responsible for movement and balance. For example, the person with dementia may begin to walk more slowly, a symptom also associated with Parkinson’s disease, or appear uncoordinated.

However, although they may find life becoming more of a struggle, people with dementia may not consider themselves to be disabled in the early stages. Fortunately they can choose from an extensive range of practical mobility aids which will help them to stay active and independent and move around comfortably, both indoors and out, with a reduced risk of falls.

For example, in the early stages of dementia an ordinary walking stick or perhaps a walker will be all that is needed to steady the gait. However, as the dementia progresses, the person may tire more easily and not be able to walk for long distances without a rest. At this time a rollator with a built-in seat may be the answer or a wheelchair, with or without a person to push it.

We have a selection of stylish, practical mobility products suitable for all types of dementia at every stage.
