Nowadays, there are more and more elderly people using wheelchairs. We often see elderly people using wheelchairs on the streets or in parks. Now the number of people using wheelchairs is gradually increasing. So for wheelchairs What kind of care should we take for the elderly in daily use?
In use, we can actually choose different ways of caring for the elderly according to the different seasons. That is to say, the way we choose is different in different seasons. We will explain to you in three more typical seasons. a bit.
First of all, the weather conditions are relatively mild in spring and autumn. In these two seasons, the weather conditions are better. For the elderly using wheelchairs, our daily care should be to help the elderly be more active, in the morning or for the elderly. When sitting in a wheelchair is tired, we can help the elderly move. For the elderly who can walk, we recommend that the elderly leave the wheelchair and walk around. For the elderly who cannot walk, we recommend helping the elderly move their legs and upper body at this time. and many more.
The second is summer when the weather is relatively hot. In summer, the focus of nursing care for the elderly using wheelchairs is to help the elderly prevent bedsores. Bedsores are the easiest to form in summer. So the most important thing at this time is to help the elderly. When sitting in a wheelchair, it is good to help the body relieve pressure and relieve blood circulation. A better way to care for the elderly is to choose a better wheelchair cushion first, and secondly, if the breathability of the wheelchair cushion is not very good, we recommend it. An anti-decubitus cushion is added to the wheelchair, which can help the elderly better prevent bedsores. At the same time, we must also pay attention to helping the elderly clean up the sweat discharged from the body in time.
Finally, the weather is relatively cold in winter. In winter, the focus of caring for the elderly is on the warmer. As we mentioned before, pay attention to the warmth of the elderly’s legs when traveling in a wheelchair. In fact, it is for the elderly. In terms of nursing, it is not only the warmth of the legs, but also other places to keep warm. There are also elderly people who need to pay attention to safety when using wheelchairs in winter, such as roads with ice and snow.
