Transferring And Positioning Services From Comfort Keepers In La Miranda, CA
Expert at-home transferring and positioning assistance
Moving around the house is one of the most common problems of aging - one that many seniors face when living independently. If your loved one is eager to continue aging in their own home but struggles to move around properly, Comfort Keepers can help. We can provide customized transferring and positioning services where our home care providers physically assist Mom or Dad whenever they need to move or reposition themselves.
Safely Getting Around the House
On a daily level, seniors who continue to live independently at home need to be able to move from one place to another without much risk. For example, during the course of the day, your loved one will likely have to move several times from the bed to the bathroom, go to the kitchen to get some food, or get to the living room to watch TV, and so on. With the help of our trained care aide, your parent can safely move throughout their home as needed.
Furthermore, transferring and positioning assistance brings a range of benefits, including:
- Expert help that reduces the likelihood of falls and accidents
- Keeping up with basic tasks that might otherwise be postponed or avoided, such as going to the toilet or getting to the kitchen
- Comfort in having a reliable companion to assist with mobility, complete chores, and provide much-needed companionship
- And more
Preventing Bed Sores
Bedsores, also known as pressure ulcers, are lesions caused by spending extended periods of time in bed. These ulcers are common in seniors who are bedridden, especially those who have difficulties repositioning themselves. When left untreated, bedsores can pose a significant health risk and lead to further complications and infections.
Our senior home care professionals have been extensively trained to provide expert positioning services, helping your loved one frequently change positions throughout the day to avoid discomfort, chronic pain, inflammation, and the formation of bedsores.
If your loved one is struggling with physical limitations or mobility issues, working with a professional senior care agency might be a better solution than moving them to the nearest assisted living facility. At Comfort Keepers of La Miranda, our focus is on providing the best possible care and allowing seniors to maintain independence and quality of life at home. Our compassionate caregivers assist with transferring and positioning, incontinence, personal hygiene, and much more.
