Seniors are known for suffering from aches and pains and age-related illnesses that can make movement difficult. Mobility issues can quickly become fall hazards, and that can be very dangerous. Staying in one position for a long time can be painful without someone there to provide help in the form of elder care. Family members are the most common helpers of the elderly but there are some hardships that can come from that.

What happens when a family member who was otherwise independent gets sick and can’t do the daily tasks they once could? If your weekly visits have turned into a need for more housekeeping, safety checks and fears that your loved one may not be able to move around, shower or even cook for themselves, it is time to seek help.  Big changes can come in the form of something as seemingly simple as losing a driver’s license or can be complicated like surgery or illness. In any case, you should know that Comfort Keepers of Etobicoke, ON are there for you whenever you need them.

Positioning and Movement

One of the biggest challenges for seniors is mobility. It can cause pain and require assistance without warning. Often seniors are the elder care provider for a spouse. However, if they are also elderly, then they may not be able to do some of the heavy lifting required. We can provide non-medical movement assistance including:

  • Walking to improve circulation and for exercise
  • Assistance during bathing
  • Positioning in the bed for those that are on extended bed rest
  • Assistance standing and sitting
  • Help in and out of the vehicle
  • Aid with stairs and other dangerous terrain

Elder care allows you to know for certain that your loved one is supported with a compassionate caregiver trained in the proper techniques to help deal with mobility and pain. Curious about services?
