Senior Tip of the Week – Walker and Wheelchair Safety Tips

Wednesday, June 5th, 2019

 

Hi I’m Jessica. I wanted to share a few tips when using the walker and wheelchair safely. Make sure you lock the brakes before standing and sitting. Always push up from your chair rather than pulling on your walker. It’s a more stable surface. When using your walker, make sure you keep the walker close to you when making turns. Keep it flat on the floor. If you need to move to get an object out of reach, the walker should stay with you at all times. Hopefully my tips help you. You can do it!
