Because your time is precious

High quality of life even in old age

Independence is a valuable asset. This is especially true for people who are dependent on support and care in everyday life. Our concern at Thomashilfen is therefore to maintain the highest possible degree of independence for these people in every situation - despite the need for care. This usually develops gradually in several phases. Here you can find out how you can maintain a maximum quality of life in each phase and which of our products support you in this.


When the steps become uncertain

Just a moment ago, a sprightly senior citizen was walking steadily through everyday life, then suddenly insecurity creeps in. Even a small fall can be the cause. The loss of contacts can further dampen her zest for life and self-confidence. The result: the senior citizen restricts her radius more and more and leaves her home less and less.

Especially in this first phase, it is important to maintain mobility and agility. With our walking sticks, walks and excursions are still possible. And on uneven ground, the Flexyfoot rubber foot ensures a secure step. In this way, the desire to move is preserved and with it a lot of quality of life. The Helping Hand, an all-purpose gripping aid, also provides support in everyday life.


When fear slows down movement

People seek safety and avoid risks. Those who are unsteady on their feet tend to avoid unknown paths and possible dangers. The problem: those who move little are untrained and actually fall more easily. That is why it is important, especially in the phase of limited mobility, to stay active and thus reduce fears.

This also includes doing everyday activities and errands themselves for as long as possible. Our shower and bath stools, the anti-slip mats or the garden seat, which can also be used as a kneeling bench, are useful aids.


When it no longer works without help

When it comes to locomotion, not only the legs but also the head plays an important role. Negative experiences such as falls, injuries or illnesses quickly diminish confidence in one's own ability to move. However, this effect can also be reversed: Positive experiences strengthen independence and mobility in everyday life again. In this way, our stand-up aid can help you to continue to actively participate in life.

When getting into the car, the swivel cushion helps - and reduces hip and back pain. The reward: new zest for life!


When mobility is only possible in moderation

Various factors can impair mobility to such an extent that independent movement is hardly possible. The affected person can then only leave the bed with the help of others. But even in this phase, a high level of quality of life is achievable: A bed rope ladder makes it easier to get up and lie down independently.

The Steady bed raising aid even helps the person to stand up and additionally prevents them from falling out of bed. A back support allows the person in need of care to continue to participate in their surroundings.


When the bed becomes the centre of life

In the phase of complete immobility, the affected persons can only leave their bed for a few hours a day - if at all. Comprehensive nursing support is now necessary.

Assistance systems such as our care cockpit, which provides vital information on movement, positioning or humidity in connection with a sensor mat, are particularly helpful for those in need of care as well as for the carers. This enables care to be provided without worry and the quality of life of all involved is maintained for a long time.
