Painful Knees? These Home Upgrades Can Help

Arthritis is a common problem that affects millions of people of all ages worldwide. For many who have the condition, they may develop painful knees that make it difficult or even impossible to get around without hurting. When living at home either alone or with your loved ones, you want to be able to navigate easily without your painful knees becoming a problem. There are several home upgrades that you may want to consider in order to improve your quality of life and reduce flare-ups of arthritis.

Walk-In Tub

If you have painful, stiff and swollen knees, you know how difficult it can be to climb up and over a tub. Unfortunately, this is a daily task that you need to do every single day if you want to be able to take a shower or bath. One of the best additions to your home to eliminate this problem is a walk-in tub. This type of tub opens up with a water-tight sealed door. This allows you to simply open the door, step inside and enjoy a relaxing bath within minutes. Most of these tubs come equipped with a built-in seat so that you can sit down and relax while bathing yourself.

Home Lift

If your house has multiple floors, it can be downright impossible to get from one floor to another if your knees are stiff and painful. Rather than resort to only living downstairs, you may want to install a home life. You can use a British home lifts comparison site to find out more about the prices and fees involved with installing this addition. After installation, you can get from floor to floor without always having to rely on the staircase.

Outdoor Ramps

Even if the only stairs in your home are located outside near the front door, you may benefit from a wheelchair ramp. These ramps aren’t just for people who have walkers and wheelchairs. They’re great for individuals who just can’t climb up stairs anymore and who need help getting into and out of the home. These ramps can be made to blend in seamlessly with your property’s aesthetic so that they do not look like they are out of place. Using the ramp is easy and makes bringing in things like groceries so much easier for you and for the rest of your family.

Grab Bars

It can be downright impossible to get up from a seated position if your knees are hurting. Whether you’re trying to get up from a low toilet or you need to get up from a seated position in a tub, grab bars make your life so much easier. The bars are made of stainless steel, so they are easy to clean and are comfortable to use. You just install the bars where they are needed and then use them whenever they’re necessary. These bars are securely installed into the wall and are able to withstand a lot of pressure, so you can feel confident that they are going to last for a very long time.
