Safety Bed Rails for Adults

Freeship

Bed rails or Hospital Side Rails serve a variety of functions: they can prevent bedridden patients and/or hospice patients from rolling or falling out of bed, and they can also provide support when you have difficulty getting into and out of bed or adjusting your position once in bed. When sleeping alone, double bed rails–one for each side of the bed–may be better than a rail on a single side. For maximum adaptability, consider adjustable bed rails that can be shortened or lengthened as needed and/or lowered by a caregiver. Read more

Choosing The Best Bed Rails For Elderly

The Benefits of Safety Bed Rails for Elders

Safety bed rails for elders mean that there are less opportunities for slips and falls from the bed area. Reduction in elder trauma is one of the leading reasons to shop for adult bed rails. Those that are caregiving for someone realize the potential for problems ahead of time, or after an accident has already occurred, and take steps to correct it with proper barriers. These should not be seen as a hindrance to bed freedom, but as a way of being even more independent. To be able to stay in ones own bed instead of resorting to more extreme measures.

Safety Bed Rails for Elders with Dementia

Bed rails, akin to hospital bed rails, are meant as a precaution for our family members and especially for those suffering from dementia, who may struggle or become confused while in their bed. Safety bed rails act as guide rails to keep loved ones from accidentally falling or sliding out from their beds and potentially breaking a bone or otherwise injuring themselves. Bed rails for seniors are not meant to be demeaning or take away freedoms but, instead, allow our elderly family members to maintain more of their independence within their homes.

Adjustable Bed Rails

One of the most beneficial things about this type of bed is that, like hospital bed rails, they have adjustable bed rails. This allows caregivers to bring the bed rails all the way down to undress and redress the beds when seniors are not in bed. Also, when seniors are not in bed, the bed rails can be folded all the way down so it looks like a completely normal bed when a full sized comforter is placed over the bed. Many seniors prefer this type of positioning when their bed is not in use because it, in addition to providing them with a bit more freedom, it lets them believe for a little while longer that they don't need adjustable bed rails.

Safety Bed Guard Rails

For those who experience frequent falls, it may eventually become necessary to keep on side of the bed rails up at all times. That way, seniors can use it for stability when they are maneuvering throughout the room as needed. Then, once they are in bed, the other side of the bed can be lifted. They may not like this new change at first but, if it is brought about gradually, there may be less balking. Introduce the change without discussion first, like the addition of the bed rails in the downward position underneath the comforter, for example. Then, discuss the changes when they are ready.
