Enjoy the great outdoors this summer with these top mobility aids

As we prepare to celebrate the Summer Solstice on the 21st, marking the official start of summer, it’s not hard to understand why June has been given the title of Great Outdoors Month. But if you’re older, or living with a disability which restricts your mobility, getting out and about during the summer months can seem like a daunting task.

Although we can’t control the weather, we can help control your anxieties when venturing out this summer by building your confidence with these handy mobility aids, enabling you to better enjoy everything the great outdoors has to offer.

Sometimes the biggest changes start with the smallest steps. Your garden can offer you a fantastic way to enjoy some time in the sun, whilst also providing the safety net of being just a few steps from home.
