Home Care Solutions for Improved Mobility in Brentwood, TN and Nearby Areas
Mobility assistance from Comfort Keepers Brentwood can improve your loved one’s quality of life
You might know that seniors who live alone are at an increased risk of loneliness and social isolation, which can lead to poor physical and mental health outcomes. But did you know that reduced mobility can also be a cause of isolation? For seniors who are less able to walk, stand, or move around comfortably, it can be hard to navigate the home and spaces outside the home. The home care solutions at Comfort Keepers of Brentwood are designed to help your loved one continue enjoying a high quality of life and getting the most out of every day.
Many seniors begin to experience trouble walking, standing, or moving around as they age. Whether your loved one experiences mobility problems due to joint pain, balance issues, arthritis, osteoporosis, or another condition, these ailments can make it hard to cook, clean, care for a home, and care for oneself. If you have an aging loved one whose mobility issues have impacted their day-to-day choices, home care solutions from Comfort Keepers can help.
Properly addressing mobility concerns is integral to the ongoing health and wellness of your loved one. Seniors with reduced mobility may be at a greater risk of a trip or a fall, which can lead to painful and expensive medical care needs, and health outcomes that can last the rest of their life. That’s why our in-home caregivers will also help your family focus on safety in your loved one’s home.
Assessing your home for better mobility
Installing grab bars in bathrooms, hallways, and other tight spaces can mean the difference between a slight stumble and a catastrophic fall. Adequate lighting in hallways and doorways, tucking electrical cords or other hazards under furniture or carpeting, and other measures can help make it easier for your loved one to move around their own home.
Our home care solutions include help with mobility, repositioning, using mobility assistance devices, and even transportation. Repositioning is important for seniors with reduced mobility because it allows the muscles to receive renewed blood flow, increasing oxygen throughout the body. Repositioning relieves tension in joints and reduces muscle stiffness, which can reduce pain and discomfort overall.
