While generally the health of older people is better than it has ever been, mobility remains an issue as people get older and often they need assistance to remain mobile.
Many healthSAVE pharmacies now have specialist areas devoted to mobility aids for the ageing population as well as for people who need aids as a result of accidents, or for other medical reasons.
The majority of mobility aids such as crutches, knee walkers and canes are designed to assist in the recovery from injury or surgery. For people with moderate support and/or balance issues, rollators and walkers may help to maintain mobility.
Speak to your healthSAVE pharmacist about the right aids for your needs.
