Need Suggestions for Vacuum Cleaner for Elderly Parents
My parents are 84 and 86 and still live alone in their own home far from all of their children, who live several thousand miles away. They both have health issues (arthritis, heart attack, carotid artery surgery, hip replacement, etc.). On a recent visit, I realized that they are trying to vacuum with inappropriate vacuum cleaners. They currently have three: one is about 30 years old, heavy, and the self-propel mechanism does not work; the second has a broken handle, and the third is for bare floors. Their carpet is fairly thick. They have one cat but she doesn't seem to shed much. I would like to get them a very lightweight vacuum cleaner that will be easy for them to use but still do a good job. Have been considering the Hoover Platinum Lightweight Upright Vacuum with Canister, Bagged, UH30010COM and wondering if that would be an appropriate one, or if anyone has any other suggestions. Thanks a lot in advance.
