Full Bed Bed Frame Sometimes accessories make a huge difference in your use and enjoyment of a home care bed. People at risk for falling out of bed should definitely purchase bed rails, which are available in half-length and full-length sizes. Those who have trouble getting in and out of bed may need a trapeze bar or a lift system to help them bathe and use the bathroom. Besides medical accessories, you may also want to look into purely aesthetic options. These days, many home care beds are designed to look like standard beds, with decorative headboards and footboards in a wide variety of colors. You can match the bed to your current décor or buy a set of coordinating furniture specially designed for assisted living facilities.
No matter which home care bed you choose, make sure you’re working with a reputable vendor. The medical equipment industry is quite competitive these days, and especially so on the Internet, where all you need is a website and a manufacturer willing to supply you with products. Find out how long the vendor has been in business and how much experience they have selling home care beds. Read the vendor’s policies carefully so you’re not surprised later by the fine print. Make sure you get a quote in writing detailing all of your costs, including shipping and installation. Your sales representative should be available during normal business hours to answer your questions and give you advice. No reputable salesperson should hurry you through a decision this important, so beware of high-pressure sales techniques.
