The life of a veteran is built on sacrifice. Long times away from loved ones and family, the loss of friends, and the burden of trauma — these are all sacrifices that in many ways are part of the “job description.” Providing care to veterans can be extremely complicated, especially when patients are suffering Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In many cases, sometimes the best course of action is to move towards providing comfort and improved quality of life in a care setting. For veterans with physical disabilities, wheelchairs designed to provide comfort and safety can help improve patient experience and wellbeing. BRODA Seating offers custom wheelchairs for veterans that can be funded through VA Contract V797P-3229M.
Here are some reasons why it’s so important to provide comfort to veterans in care settings:
- Oftentimes caregivers can’t fully understand the burden of combat and the realities of living with trauma. Many times, providing a comfortable and sage environment is the best thing to do.
- Physical and mental ailments often coincide with each other — with physical discomfort exacerbating negative thoughts and emotions, and vice versa.
- By providing comfort, this might help patients be able to think clearer and work through their issues.
For veterans missing limbs or lacking mobility, BRODA chairs are designed to promote long sitting with pressure redistribution and heat/moisture exchange. Comfort can be the first step towards healing. Let’s say “Thank You” to veterans by providing them with the highest quality tools to maximize their comfort and wellbeing.
