Transfer Assistance for Seniors in Santa Clara County
Our Bay Area Polaris Home Care Professionals Can Help
Mobility is a significant issue among many seniors. Loss of mobility can affect every aspect of an elderly person’s life, making it difficult to perform daily tasks and even leading to isolation or depression. Getting in and out of bed can be a frequent struggle that needs to be addressed.
At Polaris Home Care, transfer assistance is one of the many types of aid our home care professionals can provide. This addresses seniors’ difficulties related to transferring from one place to another, such as a wheelchair to a bed, a bed to a walker, and so on. Our caregivers are experienced and trained to properly use hoyer lifts and gait belts when necessary.
The following are some common causes of loss of mobility in seniors, for which we can provide transfer assistance:
- Recovery after falls or injuries
- Post-operative recovery
- Natural changes in muscles, joints, and bones that affect posture and mobility
Helping Seniors Move Safely
With the right support, a senior with limited mobility can continue with his or her normal routines. One of our home care professionals can offer physical support to get your loved one in and out of bed or a wheelchair using proper positioning and clear communication. We can also offer guidance related to assistive devices that can help a senior gain some independence in moving about. Our caregivers are trained on how to properly use gait belts and hoyer lifts to safely assist in transfers. By working with you and your loved one, we can create a tailor-made strategy that addresses the issues at hand while planning for the future.
