When you experience limited mobility, living at home can be a challenge – but thanks to funding announced last month in Western Australia, residents may be able to do precisely that.
In December, a total of $18.8 million in federal funding was announced by minister for ageing Mark Butler, who says it will provide support to more than 70,000 Western Australians.
“Older Australians across the country are saying they want more support to stay in their own homes, for as long as possible and we’ve listened to that message,” he said.
Mr Butler added that the funds will include support for personal care, domestic assistance, respite and social support, and also help to ensure that older Australians are not prematurely admitted into aged care facilities.
If you have a parent or ageing relative who is keen to stay in their own home, it may also be time to begin discussing renovations by adding a home elevator that could make the property more accessible for an independent lease on life!
Those who live in two-storey homes, for example, might benefit from a limited mobility wheelchair lift that can accommodate a person in a wheelchair, as well as a carer. Safely transporting you and your loved ones to any level of the home in the quickest and easiest way possible.
Easy Living Home Elevators have options to meet every budget and overcome any physical obstacle.
