A caregivers answer.
EZ Care Chair
The EZ Care ChairTM is a no-lift mobile chair and transfer device that transfers and transports dependent patients. It is not yet available for purchase. The system provides a cost effective way for a single caregiver to transfer a patient from the bed. The chair makes showering and toileting, the two most challenging and labor-intensive activities of daily living (ADLs), safer and faster which drastically reduces nursing costs.
Please visit the EZCareChair YouTube channel for videos on transfer, showering, and toileting.
Medicaid cost increases are unsustainable because of the high cost of caring for dependent patients. The $250B now spent yearly on dementia care will grow to $500B by 2030 and $1200B by 2050 (alz.org). Since there is no effective medical treatment for dementia, these costs arise from simple daily care-taking activities. Care-taking is expensive because existing patient care methods and technologies are inefficient and hazardous when performing common Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). The result is wasted nursing resources, caregiver injury and burnout, patient falls, and the forced admission of patients into costly nursing homes. The high cost of showering, toileting, transfer, and mobility challenges both caregivers and institutions, and will become a full-blown crisis as Medicaid costs double in the next decade.
