Transferring and Positioning Services at Comfort Keepers in Victoria, BC
Qualified caregivers make life more comfortable and safer for seniors in need of transferring and positioning assistance
If you are a family caregiver of a loved one who struggles with moving around properly but is keen on aging independently in their own home, working with Comfort Keepers home care services may be the best solution to ensure mom or dad’s safety and quality of life.
We can provide transferring and positioning assistance, helping your loved one move safely from one area of the home to another and maintain their preferred daily routine.
Getting from Here to There
To stay as healthy as possible and maintain a higher level of independence, seniors need to be able to move throughout their home without much risk. On a daily basis, your loved one will at least need to get from the bed to the bathroom. Then, they might want to have a meal in the kitchen or sit on the sofa in the living room and watch their favorite show. Transferring services allow your mom or dad to stick to their daily routine and move from one place to another with ease.
Additional benefits of having a professional senior home care aide to assist with transferring include:
- Less risk or falling and sustaining an injury
- Less temptation to skip out on some important tasks such as bathing, going to the toilet, or preparing a snack
- Provides care recipients with a sense of comfort in having a caring, trustworthy companion to help with chores and with whom they can socialize
Staying Away from Bedsores
Aging adults who spend prolonged periods of time-bound to the bed or wheelchair often end up with bedsores. These are pressure injuries or ulcers that form on the areas of the body where the bones are close to the skin. Without being treated or prevented by frequent repositioning, bedsores can become painful, infected, and lead to other health problems. Our home care providers are experienced in helping seniors frequently reposition themselves as they lay or sit, thus avoiding the risk of bedsores.
Transferring and positioning is an essential aspect of senior care services for incapacitated seniors who wish to stay at home rather than relocate to assisted living. Through services such as transferring, incontinence care, and personal care, our goal is to help seniors achieve the best quality of life possible, regardless of chronic conditions or physical limitations.
