Mobility issues not only affect the ability to get from one place to another, they can have a huge impact a loved one’s ability to safely and effectively complete everyday chores and tasks like vacuuming, making beds, cooking and even bathing. If your loved one is struggling with mobility beyond the capacity in which you and your family are able to assist, Alliance Home Health Care can be there to help your St. Joseph area senior get around.
During your initial care period, a member of our home care staff will do a walk-through of your home to determine if there are any specific improvements that can be made to better accommodate your loved one with mobility issues. This may include recommendations to install handrails and grab bars in the bathrooms and staircase areas of the house, tack down loose rugs, rearrange furniture, install a ramp or stair lift and improve lighting where necessary. Our loving care specialists will also provide injury-specific positioning assistance so as not to inflict further pain or damage when helping your loved one into and out of a seated or reclined position or up and down stairs.
Our mobility assistance services extend beyond the home as well. Our home care aides are able to provide transportation and assistance for your loved one when attending doctor’s appointments, physical therapy sessions or other activities and errands in St. Joseph and surrounding communities. We will help your loved one get into and out of the car, fold and stow any walking devices or wheel chairs as needed, help your loved one into and out of the appointment and accompany them throughout the engagement as necessary or requested.
One of the most difficult parts of struggling with mobility is simply not being able to perform normal household tasks in the amount of time or with the amount of effort your loved one once did. For some, tasks like standing for long periods to make a bed or walking up a flight of stairs with a laundry basket simply are not feasible anymore. We understand how difficult and discouraging this can be. Our St. Joseph home care providers can provide light housekeeping services, meal preparation and other household chores to ease this burden and stress and allow your loved one to focus on more important tasks.
