Supporting Independence

At our formation, the concept of HOME was at the center of what Frontier set out to be. So much so that it was included in our very name—Frontier Home Medical. Home is where we go for comfort, relaxation and contentment. No matter our age, we all strive for and enjoy independence. The importance of being independent is twofold for seniors. First, it is sometimes the only thing seniors may feel they can control as certain aspects of their life change with age. Secondly, maintaining independence promotes a sense of achievement that generates a profound sense of self-worth and well-being for many seniors.

How do we keep people at home?

Unfortunately, there are times when our environment becomes an obstacle or an unsafe place to be. At Frontier Home Medical, we have the equipment and expertise available to help your patients maintain independence and stay in their own homes with little or no help for as long as they desire.

Items as simple as a properly placed grab bar can mean that a person can safely bathe, toilet and even manage areas of their home that might be difficult to maneuver. If a person is unsteady on their feet and at risk for falling, a cane, walker or rollator can make the difference between sitting at home being sedentary—a risk for heart disease and many other ills—and getting out and engaging in other activities. Items such as ramps, porch lifts and stair glides become a vital tool in maintaining safety and independence in a home they may otherwise have to move out of.
