Mobility and Positioning Help from a Personal Care Assistant
Learn how a personal care assistant can help those with mobility difficulties in Brentwood, TN
As people age, mobility issues become more of a concern. No one should have to lose independence because of mobility loss due to age or ailments. Comfort Keepers serving Brentwood, TN offers high quality senior care for those who need extra help getting around. Our personal care assistant will be there to provide stability and make sure seniors have proper balance. We recognize that being able to freely move about is an important aspect of having a higher quality of life, so we are dedicated to providing mobility assistance for seniors who wish to remain independent in their own homes.
Safety is a major concern for those experiencing issues related to mobility. Elderly individuals with poor balance are far more susceptible to falls, which are a leading cause of injury in that age range. Falling is especially dangerous for the elderly, as they have brittle bones and will bruise more severely. It is important to make sure that seniors have a safe living space, and that they have someone to assist in the event of a fall.
Our mobility specialists will do an assessment of your home and make recommendations to improve safety. They will secure tripping hazards such as loose rugs and clutter, improve lighting conditions, and consideration of key locations for the installation of balancing bars to hold on to.
Your loved one’s personal care assistant will also collaborate with your physical or occupational therapists to ensure that the care provided is within the specific guidelines as recommended by these specialists. With assistance, your senior family member will be able to move into or out of beds, chairs, bath tubs, and cars with less discomfort and the risk of injury due falls from improper balance will be greatly reduced.
