We shouldn’t need a national holiday to be kind to each other, but every little reminder helps us reconnect to the people around us.

February 17 is National Random Acts of Kindness Day, a day celebrated by people across the country to encourage kind words and thoughtful actions. Small actions can truly make a difference in the lives of loved ones and even total strangers. Seniors have given so much of their lives to helping others in need, so isn’t it time recognize and appreciate all they’re done with our kindness?
Let’s take a look a few of the many ways that you can commit a random act of kindness for a senior today and any day of the year.
Breezy Elegance wheelchairs make choosing easy! Choosing the right wheelchair, with the features that are “just right” for yourself or a loved one can sometimes be a daunting task, now Sunrise Medical has simplified the process..
Realizing this, Sunrise Medical developed a new series of “bundled feature” chairs and called it the Elegance line. What a simply great idea!
Starting with a lightweight aluminum folding frame, Sunrise Medical added great comfort and convenience features, and made them standard on all three of the Breezy Elegance Wheelchairs. Features like footrests that fold up, swing out, swing in, and remove completely. Adjustable height armrests with arm pads that can be turned back to front, making either full or desk length arms in a snap. The padded back upholstery is tension- adjustable to “give” where you need it, spoke wheels and quick-release axles are included at no charge. Each model even includes a Sunrise Medical Jay wheelchair cushion to complete the total package.
Lift chairs are really helpful for getting you up and out of your easy-chair with the touch of a button. No handles to pull, no need to push down on the footrest with your legs—the motor and remote hand control take care of all that for you. Designed for safety and comfort, the time it takes to go from fully reclined to fully standing is right about 36 seconds. Our customers just love their lift chairs, but a fairly common remark from your product reviews is,
“I just wish it would raise up a little faster!”
Pride Mobility listened to your comments and responded. Their new First Up Quick-lift technology cuts the cycle time in half! The option is offered on most of Pride’s popular lift chairs.
I’d like to take a few minutes to talk about one of today’s most popular mobility aids- the rolling walker or “Rollator”. Lots of people are confused by the terminology, but either name is fine – they both really mean the same thing. Rollators are great when you need a little help with balance, or have to sit down and rest once in a while.
