5 must-have items for nursing homes and assisted living facilities

If you work for a nursing home or an assisted living facility, your job requires taking excellent care of our elderly and loved ones. Not only are you providing the utmost care and attention, but you are purchasing and having quality items on-hand that aid in their daily routines. Whether it’s providing a great night’s sleep and keeping mattresses free from potential accidents to improving blood circulation and stiffness, it is vital to have products that work. Below are five must-have items every nursing home and assisted living facility should have.

These items will make perfect additions to any nursing home or assisted living facility. Find highly absorbent and reusable bed pads that will offer the highest quality sleep while keeping mattresses dry and clean. Have clothes remain crisp and clean with bibs that are waterproof, stain-resistant, and machine washable. Improve circulation and improve sleep with wedge cushions made from premium memory foam. Keep carpal tunnel, tendonitis, and discomfort away with hand and wrist wraps that offer hot and cold therapy and use massage rollers to keep muscles from getting stiff. Our elderly deserve the best, and facilities should offer the best for our loved ones.
