Your Golden Heart home care provider understands that the ability to transport oneself safely in and out of the home is a critical safety issue. That is why we offer specialized assistance with mobility for seniors and clients who struggle with arthritis, muscular disorders, nerve damage or other disabilities or disorders that may affect mobility.
Your in home care provider will be carefully trained to provide the correct type of assistance for different mobility issues your loved one may face in order to limit the risk of additional injury. We offer assistance getting in and out of bed, up and down stairs, into and out of seated positions and into and out of vehicles. We also provide accompaniment to appointments, social events and errands to ensure your loved one has a helping hand getting where they need to go safely.
We are able to address certain types of mobility concerns and mitigate risks of further injury by utilizing the best practices within the industry and inside our own organization. We will work with your loved one to assess his or her current living situation and determine any potentially dangerous fall hazards in the home and address those with specific solutions including improved lighting, furniture rearrangement, hand rail installation and a number of other fall reduction tactics.
A care provider can also assist with basic tasks at home that may take twice or three times as long for those with a mobility impairment to complete, such as laundry, vacuuming, preparing food and organizing the home. We also provide assistance with bathing, grooming, toileting, dressing and other preparatory tasks to ensure safety, cleanliness and overall health and well-being.
