With growing age, we tend to lose energy and strength. Here are some energy saving tips from OSAN Ability Assist that you may consider if you are an elderly person:

Organise Your Surroundings

  • Keep frequently used items in easily accessible locations
  • Replace heavy items with lighter ones; for example use plastic plates
  • Install long handles on faucets and doorknobs
  • Adjust work spaces, such as raising a table top, to eliminate awkward positions; bad posture drains energy
  • Consider moving your bed to the ground floor to eliminate stair climbing

Reduce Unnecessary Effort

  • Sit rather than stand whenever possible: while preparing meals, washing dishes, ironing, etc.
  • Soak your dishes before washing, then let them air dry; or use paper plates and napkins
  • Use prepared foods when possible
  • Get a rolling cart to transport things around the house, rather than carry them

While Shopping

  • Organise list by aisles in the shop
  • Use a shopping trolley for support
  • Shop at less busy times, take someone with you to help
  • Try buying those clothes that don’t require ironing
  • See if your grocery store will deliver your groceries

Daily Activities

  • Plan everything beforehand to avoid rushing
  • Sit down to bathe and dry off.
  • Use a shower/bath organiser to decrease leaning and reaching
  • Use extension handles on sponges and brushes
  • Install grab rails in the bathroom or use an elevated toilet seat
  • Wear comfortable shoes and low-heeled, slip on shoes. Wear button front shirts rather than pullover shirts
