Transferring and positioning assistance designed to make life at home more comfortable
As our elderly loved one’s age, mobility and range of motion typically decrease, making free movement around the house more and more challenging. If you have recently noticed your parent is struggling to move around properly, Comfort Keepers of Vancouver can help them age at home. We can customize a home care plan that will include transferring and positioning and assistance with mobility.
From Here to There
In order to keep up with basic activities of daily living, an elderly person needs to be able to move around various areas of their home without too much risk. On a daily basis, your parent will surely need to get from the bed to the bathroom. They might want to move over to the living room to sit in front of the TV or go to the kitchen to grab something to eat.
Whatever their daily routine may be, transferring home care services are here to provide your senior with the assistance they need to go about safely and freely.
Furthermore, with our transferring assistance your loved one can expect to:
- Significantly reduce the risk of falls and injuries that are commonly associated with senior dependence
- Complete many tasks that might be avoided otherwise, including bathing and toileting, preparing meals, and more
- Find comfort in having someone to talk to and engage in activities with
Positioning Prevents Bedsores
Bedsores, also known as pressure ulcers, are injuries to the skin developed from being in the same position over extended periods of time. When older adults have trouble with repositioning themselves as they sit or lay, bedsores are likely to form.
On the other hand, discomfort, skin breakage, and infections associated with pressure ulcers can be easily prevented when there is a skilled senior care provider ready to help your loved one frequently change positions throughout the day.
