When it comes to buying a wheelchair, there are so many out there in the market, it can be overwhelming. I know I was when I was looking for a wheelchair for my dad. I would sum up the experience of choosing the right wheelchair for your loved one to buying a car.

Here are the KEY points to assist you when you are shopping for a wheelchair:

  1. Durability and sturdiness
  2. Ease of use
  3. Comfort level for the user
  4. Safety features
  5. Weight
  6. Pricing
  7. Customer Service

If you are anything like me, I am sure you are baffled by the number of wheelchairs available online. Here I have given reviews of 3 different types of wheelchairs which are quite popular online.

But, you are absolutely clueless about being a caregiver and do not know what to prepare for your parent’s arrival from the hospital. This is a familiar scenario, isn’t it?

Through the following steps, I will guide you with the necessary preparations to be taken in your home for your loved one and on tips in being their caregiver.

Time flies and without you realizing it, you are now an adult working and building your young family. Everything is going on well and in your equation of life, your parents will live long and healthy. They will never be a bother in your life. In their golden years, they will be traveling the world and living the comfortable retired life.

You wake up from your idealist world and stare into reality. There sit your parents who can hardly help themselves or remember their own name, reality hits you. The role has reversed. You are now the “parent” (caregiver) and your parent, the “child”.
