Senior citizens of this current era are more active than in the past.
In addition to delaying retirement and taking part in sports and other activities that were only confined to young people, most of them over the age of 65 are now leading a more progressive life than their parents.
Considering this progression, it is most likely due to mobility playing an important part in the elderly population.
However, in their 70s and 80s, a lot of people lose their ability to stay active due to various disabilities or chronic medical conditions that affect their ability to be self-reliant.
Capital Rehabilitation Supplies is an exciting new business located on the north side of Canberra that supplies quality rehabilitation equipment.
"We aim to provide quality and reliable rehabilitation products and related services to aged and disabled persons in the ACT and surrounding areas with our head office and new showroom located in Mitchell," a spokesperson for Capital Rehabilitation Services said.
