Fairly common in older adults, mobility issues can take a serious toll on your loved one’s independence and well-being. Apart from resulting in difficulties with performing daily tasks, mobility problems may cause both physical and mental health decline. In order to reduce the risk of additional complications, you may wish to consider senior home care as a solution that can improve your parent’s quality of life drastically.
At Comfort Keepers of Victoria, BC, we put a special emphasis on physical, mental, and social activity in our care plans. The activity of any kind is one of the cornerstones of our nationally renowned brand of home care, famous by the name of Interactive Caregiving. Within this program, we promote activity on a daily basis, that is, we encourage our senior clients to be as active as possible and take an active role in their care as well. You may be wondering how seniors with mobility issues can remain active in all these areas. Our caregivers are here to help older adults with mobility problems increase their activity levels and boost their overall wellness.
As mobility plays a vital role in preserving independence in senior years, our services include not just mobility assistance but transferring & positioning and companionship care during exercises, therapy, and other activities of daily living. It is important to keep in mind that our caregivers are all trained to provide mobility assistance, which requires not just strength but also a special set of skills that reduces the risk of any type of injury or accident.
In addition to helping your loved one move around their home, our care providers offer assistance outdoors and can accompany them wherever they wish to go in the area. This is very beneficial as many older adults with mobility problems choose to stay indoors most of the time for fear of hurting themselves. With a dedicated caregiver by your loved one’s side, there is nothing to worry about.
On the other hand, if your loved one is bedridden or must remain seated, we offer skilled transferring and positioning services that relieve pressure off certain body parts and improves breathing, digestion, bowel movements, and other bodily functions.
Finally, companionship is an integral part of our services. We want your loved one to feel comfortable when receiving senior care and we want them to develop a deep bond with their chosen caregiver. This does not only help with mobility and other issues but makes senior care a much more enjoyable experience as a whole.
