Transfer Pants

Transfer Pants are high quality unisex pants designed to move disabled persons safely, easily and comfortably. They have patented handles sewn into the pants and the liner to prevent falls and injuries to mobility challenged individuals. They have been specifically designed with caregivers in mind and have handles on the front, side and back, front zippers, pockets etc. They are machine washable and durable: Transfer pants are unisex.

Transfer Pants were created by Dr. Rennie O’Brien, a chiropractor in San Francisco who was transferring his 91-year-old mother from a wheelchair to a chair lift. Dr. O’Brien always felt that the transfer was unstable and perilous, because there was nothing for him to grab onto. When he once lifted his mother and heard the seam of her pants rip, he knew there had to be a better and safer way to transfer people who are mobility challenged.

While most seniors face major adjustments when transitioning to an elder-care community, Jewish seniors face additional challenges. Not only do they lose their homes, and many of their friends, but they also lose ties to their cultural heritage. This is where the Jewish Pavilion, a 501c3 non-profit, steps in. The Pavilion serves as a resource that provides room visits, festive holiday celebrations, and more to 450 Jewish residents in fifty facilities for seniors. The Jewish Pavilion promotes inclusion, and thousands of seniors of all faiths are welcomed into our programs. www.JewishPavilion.org
