Hospital Beds for Home Care

Have you recently become a carer for someone you love? If so, you are probably looking for hospital beds for home.

Home care beds are specifically designed for those who want to be cared for within a home environment. Caring for someone within their home gives them familiar surroundings, which can be comforting.

However, regular beds are not always suitable for those who are recuperating at home, aged care or palliative care as they do not offer the right support, safety or positioning for the patient’s requirements.

A hospital bed for home care differs because it can have adjustable height options, which can help your loved one get in and out of bed safely, and it reduces the risk of falls and injuries. Many also come on wheels for easier transportation.

Another key difference is that a medical bed may have rails on each side to prevent patients from falling out of bed.

There are many different options available for medical mattresses that can seem confusing at first glance. However, Forte Healthcare is here for you, and we can help you find a mattress that is right for your patient.

Firstly, you need to know what your loved one’s requirements are. Are they considered low, medium, high or very high risk? This can help narrow down your options and help you find the right mattress.

Along with this, you will need to consider any other special considerations, such as whether they require a bariatric mattress.

For those who are medium risk, the Homecare Icon is a popular choice that offers support, comfort and protection from pressure injuries.

If your patient is at higher risk, the Sovereign S4 could be a fantastic choice. As it is designed for those who spend 12+ hours in bed, it helps to regulate their temperature, keep them in a central position and, of course, offers them the best comfort.
