A personal care assistant will help seniors with mobility and positioning in Huntersville, NC
Issues regarding mobility become a greater concern as people age and their balance is not quite what it used to be. Many fear that their independence will be taken away as they lose the ability to freely move about. For those in need, Comfort Keepers serving Huntersville, NC, offers exceptional in home care with mobility assistance. A highly trained personal care assistant will ensure that seniors will not lose quality of life due to mobility issues, and that they can continue to live as they prefer right in the comfort of home.
For those with weakened muscles or balance issues that come with age, safety becomes a major concern. Falling is a major risk, as elderly individuals have more brittle bones that are more prone to fracture. Additionally, risks from lacerations are more severe as blood in the elderly will not clot as quickly. It is important to do everything we can to reduce the chance of a fall. A personal care assistant from our agency will do an assessment of your loved senior’s home and make safety recommendations. Any hazards will be removed including tripping risks such as loose rugs and cables, poorly placed furniture, and clutter. The lighting will be checked, and the installation of balance bars will be considered for key locations.
Your caregiver will also assist with mobility by collaborating with occupational or physical therapists to be sure that the level of care provided falls within the guidelines as recommended by experts in the field. They will help with strength and balance so your senior family members will be able to get into or out of beds, chairs, and cars. With mobility help or long term care your loved one need not fear the loss of independence that comes from not being able to get around as easily due to old age, and the risk of injury due to falling will be severely reduced.
