Top Products to Help with Independent Living | Blooms Blog

If you’re looking to better support either yourself or loved ones with accessible products for independent living then Blooms The Chemist have a range of options for you to choose from. If greater home care is needed, then these products are highly useful for daily living as well as for senior and disability care.

We have a wide range of walking sticks for sale, including folding walking sticks, wooden walking sticks, collapsible walking sticks and foldable walking sticks.

Adjustable Two Handle Walking Stick

Our adjustable two handle walking sticks are made of light aluminium and are adjustable (83 – 95cm). They have a rubber stopper for superior grip and safety, along with a storage collar.

Aluminium Rollator Deluxe with Loop Brakes

Our aluminium rollator deluxe comes with comfortable padded seats with a removable basket and backrest. It also includes ergonomic hand grips with a locking brake as well as adjustable handles, and a lightweight aluminium frame that is easy to fold for travel and storage. A rollator allows you to walk at a quicker pace with easy manoeuvrability as the wheels pivot in place. They also don’t require upper arm strength as they can be easily pushed around.

Rollators can be used if you have weaknesses in your arms and are not able to lift things, but you still have a good sense of balance. They also can be useful if you require a rest more often after you’ve walked for a while as they are equipped with a seat.

Care equipment such as donut cushions and reachers may also be needed to allow for better comfort and accessibility while at home.

Convoluted Donut Cushion

Our convoluted donut cushions are designed to provide comfort and protection while helping to remove pressure and reduce pain that can be caused from a range of conditions.


Plastic shoehorns assist with positioning your foot into your shoe. They contain a handle at the top and are 56cm in length, perfect for times when you find it hard to reach down and take off your shoes.
