The long Summer days are finally over and autumn is in full swing with downpours across the country. It won’t be long until the leaves start falling from the trees in earnest and the clocks go back, bringing longer and colder nights. So why not take a look at our wet weather gear and clothes and accessories to help you stay warm and cosy all autumn and winter.
Stay Warm and Dry Outside
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.
Comfi Fleece Hand Muff
Many people struggle with keeping their hands warm even during the warmer months due to poor blood flow, so when the cold weather rolls in it’s even more difficult. The Comfi Fleece Hand Muff is capable of keeping your hands warm in even the most extreme of cold weather. It comes with a next strap so you don’t need to put it down when you needs to get your hands free.
The Wheelchair Cosy will protect you from the harsh winter weather. Waterproof and with a wind resistance factor, no matter which wheelchair type you use, we’re confident you’ll be able to go about your daily outside tasks in all but the most extreme of weather conditions. The Splash has real fur lining and the Comfi has fake fur. Both protect the zip area and keep the warmth in, helping you stay comfortable and relaxed.
Stay Cosy and Warm Indoors
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.
You’ve probably noticed that the temperature has dropped as we’re approaching October. The crisp mornings are back and the coats are going back on everywhere you look. For those of you who aren’t suited to the colder climate – whether its down to personal preference or an underlying condition – staying warm isn’t easy. However, here at CareCo we provide clothing items that can make you warmer on even the briskest of days.
A Heated Cardigan
Another great way to stay warm without firing up the central heating system is with a heated cardigan. Our Comfi Heated Luxury Cosy works like an electric blanket, but is worn like a shawl or cardigan. Just put it over your shoulders, button it up and switch on.
The mains powered heated cardigan will keep you warm all day long. It’s made from a thick fleece material, so even when not plugged in it helps to keep you warm. The front buttons allow you to open it up in case you start to feel too hot!
Cold toes are one of the most unpleasant experiences of cold weather. We’ve all been sitting on the couch trying to make them warmer with a blanket, or stepped on a cold kitchen floor and got an unpleasant surprise. To solve that problem, you may want to consider these Microwaveable Slippers and Neck Warner Set. Both sections can be placed in microwave to heat them up in just a few minutes, providing you with toasty toes. The set is also ideal for soothing aches and pains in your feet and neck muscles.
Although not technically an item of clothing, this Deluxe Massage Foot Warmer is a godsend when it comes to those cold nights in. The soft fleece lining is incredibly comfortable to rest your feet in before you’ve even turned on the massage motors. Once you do switch it on you have the option of two massage levels and heat adjustment, so you can find the ideal setting to either get rid of some aches and pains, or just relax in general.
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.
