Whether you’re carving a pumpkin or headed on a drive to look at the beautiful leaves changing colors, fall can be a really fun time for grandparents and grandkids to be together.
When traveling in the car, it’s important to keep everyone safe. Everyone knows general car safety rules – wear your seatbelt, don’t text while driving, etc. But climbing in and out of the car can be one of the most dangerous times for senior adults with limited mobility. Here at Stander, we’ve worked to develop products that help senior adults improve their mobility and increase their independence. We have some great options for car mobility products.
One automobile mobility product we’re particularly proud of is the Metro Car Handle Plus. The Metro Car Handle Plus makes it easy to get in-and-out of the car. Simply slide the handle into the striker/door-latch for extra support while sitting or standing. It fits any door striker – so you can have support anywhere in the car for stress-free traveling. And it includes a flashlight for greater visibility at night. When you’re done, simply place the handle in your car and you’re ready to go.
So take grandma for a fun fall drive to see the changing leaves or head to the grocery store to pick out your pumpkins together. Stay safe and have fun!
