Many seniors and other individuals struggle with a reduction of mobility due to injury, arthritis, and other diagnoses. This reduction may have a profound effect on their ability to get things done in a timely manner without pain or frustration. At Comfort Keepers in Akron, OH we understand this challenge and can work with your loved one to find the right in-home care solutions that will help your loved one regain independence and happiness through mobility assistance.
When you are first assigned a home care aide from our agency, he or she will work to determine ways in which your loved one’s living environment can be adjusted in order to improve mobility and reduce the risk of falls and further injury. Some changes your caregiver may suggest include installation of handrails and grab bars on stairs and in bathrooms, removal or securing of loose or damaged carpet and rugs, installation of additional lighting in dimly lit areas of the house, rearrangement of furniture for improved walkability and other suggestions as required.
In-home care aides are also specially trained to provide injury-specific mobility assistance and positioning to ensure that your loved one does not experience additional pain or injury. Elderly care providers can help ensure your loved one is safe during showers and bathing and can assist with this as well as dressing and grooming.
We are also able to assist with chores and tasks around the house. Caregivers offer light housekeeping services that can provide help with laundry, vacuuming, dusting, putting away clothes, changing sheets, and much more. Not only does this improve overall safety and reduce the risk of falls or injury, but it also shaves significant time off of a senior’s day doing routine or unpleasant tasks. This allows seniors to focus on enjoyable activities while still having a clean and organized home.
Seniors with mobility problems may also benefit from assisted transportation services. Our care providers can drive your loved one to and from appointments, activities, errands, and other engagements while also providing help with stowing and reassembling assistive walking devices, finding handicap accessible parking and entrances, and providing stability and support throughout the day.
