Factors That Limit Mobility

  • Loss of muscles mass (less strength)
  • Stiff joints (less flexibility)
  • Change in gait (less balance)
  • Medical related injury or illness
  • Side effects of medications
  • Dietary issues
  • Fear of falling
  • Pain or discomfort while moving
  • General lack of physical activity

Whatever the cause, our team of caregivers can assist your loved one in completing their activities for daily living (ADLs) so they can remain independent at home. We can also help them work on maintaining their mobility or increase the chances of reclaiming mobility that has been lost.

Mobility Effects the Body & Mind

When loved ones live a sedentary lifestyle, they increase their risk of developing a serious disease or sustaining an injury. Memory, critical thinking, and comprehension can also diminish. Our team will work closely with your senior loved one to evaluate their current physical abilities and identify any impeding factors. We’ll then personalize their care plan with family home care services that encourage healthy movement.

Help Around the Home

Seniors can receive mobility assistance as soon as they wake up. We can help them start their day by assisting them with getting out of bed, bathing, and dressing. The rest of the day can then be filled with activities that encourage movement and productivity. This can include going to the grocery store and making meals, cleaning the home, doing laundry, or even dancing! Seniors with limited mobility can also receive assistance with transferring and positioning throughout the home.

Mindful Motivations

A negative state of mind can be both the determining factor and result of limited physical activity. Seniors may opt to remain still because they are anxious about things in their life, they are lonely, they have fears that they may fall and injure themselves, or they have nothing to motivate them. Know that our family home care services team isn’t just here to check off a to-do list. We’re here to listen to their worries, be a great companion, and give them the confidence they need to make each step.
