Is there someone on your list this year who might need a bit of extra help, or special comfort? Maybe a newly pregnant pal, a grandparent who’s having trouble getting around, or a co-worker who’s injured themselves. Why not give the gift of comfort? Visit one of Calgary Co-op’s Home Health Care Centres to see the vast array of helpful items that would be a welcome treat under the tree.
Plush Pillows for Comfort
Got a friend or family member that’s expecting? A special pillow or foam wedge might help ease some of her discomfort. There’s different shapes and sizes to choose from, but it’s a gift that shows you care.
Perhaps someone you know is battling an injury from being a weekend warrior. We have a variety of products to help speed healing and ease pain. Heat or cool packs make a great stocking stuffer, or consider a massage device to loosen strained muscles. Not sure what would work best for your recipient? Ask our health care specialists and we’ll work with you to make sure you get exactly what you need.
For an unexpected gift that can create lasting comfort, why not wrap up a soft sheepskin? Sheepskin is a naturally plush, moisture wicking, and effective fabric that has been used in healthcare for treating and preventing wounds, since it provides a low friction surface which reduces pressure on skin.
So many folks deal with chronic pain like back pain. A pain therapy system is a thoughtful gift too that can help relieve chronic issues. Calgary Co-op Home Health Care carries Dr-Ho Pain Relief Systems. Ask one of our health care specialists for a recommendation. We’ll teach you how to use the device you choose, and to take care of it.
Group Gifts for the Grandparents
You never really think stairs can be a barrier until you have mobility issues, or know someone who does. If you’re looking for a family gift for an older relative or someone who has trouble with stairs, you could all get together to get them a stairlift.
Stairlifts can be an intimidating expense for someone on a fixed income, so if the family can band together to ease this burden, it can be a welcome gift.
Calgary Co-op Home Health Care has a wide selection of stairlifts for inside or outside a home. Choose one, and our experts can install it and maintain it as needed, so your family member can maintain their independence.
Similarly, a mobility scooter might be a welcome sight to someone on Christmas morning. Where some see only a scooter, walker, wheelchair, or cane, we know these devices are really about dignity, freedom, and independence. Calgary Co-op Home Health Care has Western Canada’s largest selection of mobility scooters, including a number of brands at many price points.
Come in and browse our selection of helpful, healing and comforting supplies, gadgets and devices to see the many options for easing the discomfort of someone you know and love. By the way, we’ll deliver most orders over $25 for free, and can even set up automatic recurring orders if needed.
