Transfer assistance refers to a service offered in assisted living communities designed to help individuals move from one place to another. There are a number of reasons why people may find mobility difficult. Conditions such as arthritis can make movement painful for patients or even sometimes impossible. Using this service ensures that your loved one still enjoys a certain degree of mobility.
About Our Transfer Assistance
Transfer assistance focuses not just on the movement of the individual from one point to another but also on the overall safety of all the people involved. Done professionally, transfer assistance is also as comfortable as possible for the individual being moved. Transfer assistance techniques are grouped into four main approaches namely lateral transfer where the individual is moved from one surface to the next. There is the pivotal transfer where there is a vertical movement from one surface to another. The third is the sit-to-stand transfer that moves the individual from a sitting position to a standing position. Finally, there is the horizontal transfer which moves an individual from one surface to another while they remain lying down.
Benefits of Having Transfer Assistance in Your Senior Living Community
Transfer assistance is critical for individuals who are unable to move on their own. For example, individuals with bone or spine problems may find it difficult to get out of their beds in the morning. Transfer assistance makes it easier for such individuals to do this without strain.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Senior Living Community?
Due to a variety of medical conditions, it sometimes becomes impossible for an individual to move around. For example, getting into bed and out of it in the morning may pose a challenge to your loved one. Even if they have caregivers, it is not always true that caregivers know how to help their wards move around. Incorrect transfer techniques can lead to injuries for both the individual and the caregiver. It is common for example, for caregivers to suffer from back problems due to incorrectly lifting the people they are trying to help. At an assisted living community, this is unlikely to happen as we have professionals in our team. They have the right training to help your loved one with day-to-day mobility thus helping them to get the most out of their day.
