If a loved one has suffered an injury, is going through an illness or needs the best aged care, a hospital bed can offer them significantly more comfort, independence and better standards of care.
We understand that choosing a hospital bed is a difficult decision, but Forte Healthcare is with you every step of the way as you make your choices.
Nowadays, many people choose to care for their loved ones at home, giving them a familiar and homely environment. Ensuring you have the appropriate equipment at home may now be necessary.
A hospital bed is there to give the patient safe and comfortable. If you have never cared for someone at home, it can, at first, appear confusing about the differences between a hospital bed and a regular bed.
Hospital beds are purpose-built, and they allow the carer to give the patient the best treatment. They could be height adjustable, have rails, and are also designed with patients who have to spend long periods in bed.
They may also have wheels so patients can be transferred easily and with minimal disturbance and handles to help with getting out of bed,
