High Quality Medical Recliners: Winco, Geriatric, And Lumex

I remember as a young girl, perhaps in the third or fourth grade, going to an elderly woman’s house with my best friend at the time. We had to go to the woman’s house to check on her and make sure she didn’t need any help with anything. While we were there my friend had me sit in this very nice recliner. She then grabbed a remote and made the chair move around in very strange positions. It was like a ride at an amusement park. We both sat in the chair, playing until it was time for use to leave with her mother. I didn’t know it at the time, but looking back, I know now that it was one of those medical recliners that aid elderly people.


As you get older you will realize that it is harder to get up out of your comfy chair. You might experience a few more aches and pains that usual. Your typical Lazy Boy recliner might not make you feel so comfy, as it used to. Or perhaps you sink into the chair and can’t seem to get out of the chair, it sucks you in. Medical chairs are not just used for people who are aging. Medical recliners are very important tools for people who have disabilities and life long illnesses. For people who can’t stand up out of a normal chair a medical recliner will lift up the back and somewhat “dump” the person out of the chair.

One of the most common brands that you will find in the medical field is Geriatric chair. Many hospitals and nursing homes prefer to use chairs such as the Lumex, or chairs much like it. The upholstery is designed for easy cleaning, because we all know that spills are inevitable. The wheels lock for safety reasons. It contains a durable frame to keep your love one protected from their chair falling apart. There is a moveable tray on the chair. The Lumex also has a 3-position recline. You can adjust the recline to fit your needs at that time. Another favorite in the medical field is the Winco. These chairs offer much of the same features as the Lumex, but the Winco also has the ability to drop a side for easy transferring to a bed.
If you have a loved one who is in need of medical recliners, or if you need one yourself, you can search online to make a purchase, contact the local hospital or nursing home and ask where they make their purchases from, or go to a medical furniture store if you have one in your area. Purchasing furniture online might give you a discount on the actual item, but the shipping and handling charges are usually rather expensive. You would probably be better off just going to a store to make your purchase. Unfortunately, medical recliners are not as common as regular, everyday recliners; therefore, you might have to make your purchase online or from a catalogue. Whichever form of purchasing you decide to use, make sure that your cheap recliners comes with a good warranty. You must also be certain that you will be receiving a manual for your best recliners. If you are not 100% satisfied, be sure to let the company know as soon as possible to see if there is anything you can do about the product.

Trampoline safety in your home

Trampoline enclosures are by far the most important accessory for any 12ft trampoline. A trampoline can be fun for all the family, but can also be very dangerous if not used properly. Falling off a trampoline, or landing on the frame can both cause very serious injuries. The easiest way to avoid this is to buy a 12ft trampoline enclosure to go around it.

The trampoline enclosure is basically a netting which is pulled around vertical posts attached to the trampoline frame, which then prevents anybody falling off, landing on the frame, or other children throwing things onto the trampoline when it is in use.

Working with a deck builder

One of the processes that home owners seem to not fully understand is working with a contractor to come up with a custom design. There could be any type of need and design, and nearly any type of contractor, and home owners tend to make the same mistakes and assumptions across the board. We will just use an example for clarification of this point, and that is when a home owner decided to build a deck in their back yard. They must work with a custom deck building, like some of the contractors from Centennial Decks. Nearly without fail, the home owner will show up to the first meeting without really thinking through what they want. They will expect to be lead through the process by their contractor, and often assume that the contractor already understands what they want.

When a home owner has an idea for a deck in their head, they almost take it as a given that the contractor will already understand that need and that image, because it is the image that is normal for them. So the single biggest issue when a home owner is working with a contractor is the communication and the assumptions about what is expected and what is understood. custom deck The only way around this, and it works with any contractor for any project, is going to be for the home owner to understand that they are going to have to be clear and detailed and precise about what they want and are expecting to see. This can be difficult, but once everyone understands this approach it makes all the meetings much more productive. Continue reading “Working with a deck builder” »

That’s Mamihood

That’s Mamihood

I’m starting a new series today.  That’s Mamihood is my version of trying to find the lighter side of parenting.  With 3 kids, ages 12,6 and 4… boy, have I got some stories for you!   If you are part of the wonderful, exciting and sometimes mind-blowing world called parenting, I hope you join in on this open-door conversation.  Mamihood is my Latina version of Motherhood.   Welcome and Enjoy!

It’s night time. You are asleep.  A DEEP sleep. When all of a sudden you think you hear, but you kind of don’t hear, your kid’s voice whispering “Mommy.”  Then the whispering gets a tad louder and when you somewhat open your eyes, all you see is a black silhouette looking down at you.  Before you can even register in your mind that it’s your son or daughter, YOU HAVE ALREADY JUMPED 10 FEET IN THE BEST TRAMPOLINE FOR KIDS from being scared to the very core of your being!!!  I may or may not have screamed a couple of times.  Yes, this has happened to me more than once.I want them safe and health

family-kids

The thing is “why not do that to daddy?”  I’m sure he can handle the situation way more better than I ever will. I don’t think I can ever get used to getting scared in the middle of the night.   But…

That’s Mamihood!

Little hands!

When I was a fairly new mother, I was still a working mother.  I would work T, Th, S.  So, the time I spent with my bouncing baby boy was precious.

Many, many moons ago…..

We were at Ralphs, a local supermarket.  I had my then 1.5yo son in the shopping basket.  I had just placed my groceries on the conveyer belt to check out and moved on forward to pay.  Then the most embarrassing thing to happen to me  at a market, happened.

We pulled up, and my son was right in front of that automated machine that gives you your change in coins. Well, that little machine (totally not our fault, though) was opened.  The flap that holds the coins in place was opened leaving ALL the coins exposed.  Oh yeah! Continue reading “That’s Mamihood” »

Be safe In and Around agua!!

Gente, now that the summer months are here, please let us make a special effort in keeping our nenes safe around water!  We’ve all heard that things can happen in a blink of an eye.  In a split second, that we take our eyes off of the kids, our lives can be turned upside down.

When Olympic Gold Medalist Cullen Jones was five-years-old he nearly drowned – prompting his mother to enroll him in swimming lessons for the first time. Today Jones is committed to sharing his personal story and promoting water safety tips to parents and children across the county. By the end of 2011, it is the goal of Make a Splash to enroll more than one million children in swim lessons – regardless of economic status.

Check out these great tips!

Pampers Latino

Pampers is reaching out to the Latino community in a fantastic way.   How would you have liked a helping hand when you were a first time mama, and your newborn was crying without knowing why.  Do yo remember those times?  I do.  Thank God, I had my familia close by.  My mom and tias always had a helping hand.  But what happens to those who don’t live close to family.  To those who’s mom or other motherly figures live else where and are not there to lend a loving advise… what then?

This is where Pampers steps in.

Milagros.  Miracles.  Every child is a miracle…. Cada bebé es un milagro.  How true is that statement.  When my mexipinos were newborns, I treasured every moment with them.  My first, because he was my first.

They are on Facebook, and it’s really easy to get the ayuda you may need.
