Walkers are three sided frames that aid balance when walking.  Rollators are wheeled walkers.  There are several types, each suitable to individual needs and demands.

Other variations of the basic walker includes those that have a fold down seat or specialized grips to better spread the weight from the palms.  Each enhances utility at the price of mobility.

Rollators are wheeled walkers.  They come with three or four wheels.  Three wheel versions are lighter, but less stable.  Four wheel variants are more stable, but heavier.  They are ideal for use over longer distances, requiring little effort to move forward while offering good stability.  A toe lift tilts the rollator over low obstacles.  Usually, these come with seats that allow rest stops between destinations.  Unfortunately, the seat also interfere with the gait of the user.

Consideration should be given to where the walker/rollator is to be used.  If there is more than one level involve, and a powered lift is not available, having one for each level would be ideal.  Ideally, one would have a walker for indoor use and another for outdoor use.

Please consult our pharmacist for what will work best for you.  Super Grocer & Pharmacy staff can measure and fit you the right size of walker or rollator.

If taste preferences or availability is an issue, then supplements of omega-3 is easy to introduce into our lifestyle and found in the the vitamin section of our pharmacy. Omega-6 fatty acids are very common, found in cooking oils such as sunflower and corn oils, plentiful in grain fed meats and in egg yolks. The fatty meats that tastes so good from the grill and the dressings that, well, dresses up our salads all contribute fats to our diet.

Grades of beef are primarily segregated based on how much, what size and distribution of fat deposited in the rib eye muscle of an animal - called marbling. There are also grass fed cattle that are then place in feedlots for finishing – that is fed grains to whiten the fat that otherwise will be yellow. Before discussing what qualities are used to differential grades of beef, a short introduction into cattle production will help.
