The last Bank Holiday of spring-summer is over and the nights are clearly drawing in now. It won’t be long before the mornings have a distinct chill in the air. Summer in the northern hemisphere officially ends between the 19th and the 21st September, giving way to autumn and all the dazzling colours and colder weather that entails. While Indian Summers are getting more common in the UK, now is the perfect time to stock up on autumn CareCo products.
Splash Wheelchair Cosy
Wheelchair users need to carry out daily tasks just like anybody else. For those who don’t drive, anything but the lightest rain can prove an obstacle to outdoor chores. The Splash Wheelchair Cosy tackles two typical problems associated with autumn – rain and cold. This is one of the most waterproof cosies available on the market but it also has a fur lining to retain as much heat as possible, finished with a heavy-duty zip and pull cord. Where most wheelchair cosies scuff and fray at the bottom, that is not the case with this essential autumn CareCo product. It has a toughened foot plate for long-term use.
Mobility scooter users have different requirements from waterproof, windproof, and other weatherproof covering. The different design of the vehicle means you need a different type of covering. The branded scooter cape is one of the top sellers in our range of autumn CareCo products. It will not only cover your body but also your vehicle too in most cases. It’s suitable for smaller and larger mobility scooters and for both 3 and 4-wheel models. The clear front panel allows users to see the tiller and operate the controls without a problem and without getting your hands cold and wet.
Autumn products also include those for mental well-being. Seasonal Affective Disorder or Seasonal Adjustment Disorder is a type of mild depression that affects people when the seasons change. It typically affects most sufferers during the noticeable changes between summer and autumn when it gets colder, darker, and wetter. This SAD Light Pad has medical approval, proven to relieve some of the symptoms of seasonally affected depression. The bright light simulates natural sunlight but without the powerful electricity bill to match. It uses modern LED technology to create a powerful light at a fraction of the cost and consumption.
Cozee Electric Hot Water Bottle
This is a modern take on a classic autumn-winter essential. Except, this autumn product doesn’t use or require water – meaning less chance of burns from water spillage or steam. So how does it work? It’s actually quite simple. Plug it into a mains outlet and wait for it to get warm. It takes just a few minutes to reach optimum temperature; the most impressive thing? The heat retention is up to 5 hours. Combine it with a Cozee Lamb’s Wool Cover and the warmth will potentially last up to 14 hours. It will turn itself off once it gets warm enough; you’re unlikely to burn yourself with this.
Nothing says autumn quite like higher tog duvets. For those who still feel the cold, the electric blanket has always been the way to go. Some people are still concerned about safety. In truth, modern electric blankets are much safer and more efficient than ever before. CareCo is proud to present the Comfi Electric Heated Blanket. Using revolutionary new breathable fabric, you won’t feel too hot and will find it much easier to find that perfect night-time temperature. It has six heat settings and an option to switch off after 3 hours, ensuring you get a good night sleep with the right temperature at the right time.
