Additional Tips for Winter Mobility

Besides using the right mobility aids, here are some additional tips to ensure safe and comfortable mobility during winter:

Dress in Layers

Wearing multiple layers of clothing can help retain body heat and keep you warm. Opt for thermal wear, warm hats, gloves, and scarves to protect against the cold. Make sure your outerwear is easy to remove once you’re indoors to prevent overheating.

Stay Active Indoors

If it’s too cold or slippery outside, try to stay active indoors. Simple exercises like stretching, walking in place, or using resistance bands can help maintain mobility and flexibility. Mobility Caring offers various exercise equipment designed for seniors, which can be used safely indoors.

Plan Your Outings

Plan your outings during the warmer parts of the day and avoid going out during extreme weather conditions. Ensure that walkways are cleared of ice before venturing outside. If you need assistance, don’t hesitate to ask for help from a caregiver or family member.
