Do mobility issues keep your loved one confined to the house for the majority of the time? For some older adults, they can even have trouble getting from one room to the other parts of the house. When this happens, the quality of life suffers and social isolation sets in. When you relocate to a senior living community that offers ambulation and transfer help, such as Rittenhouse Village At Valparaiso, you can begin enjoying your life to the fullest.
About Our Ambulation and Transfer Assistance
Residents with limited mobility will require assistance getting about. This includes walking from their apartment to common spaces in the community, as well as from their bedroom to the living room, bathroom, and kitchen. Residents who require assistance to walk or transfer themselves are at significant danger of falling and injuring themselves if they are not provided with the necessary support.
At Rittenhouse Village At Valparaiso, our trained caregivers are well-versed in the proper procedures for wheelchair transfer and the selection of the most appropriate safety gear to meet the requirements of our residents. This enables individuals to enjoy a full and interesting life, one in which their mobility issues do not limit where they can go or what they can do.
Benefits of Having Ambulation and Transfer Assistance in Your Senior Living Community
In a variety of ways, our assisted living residents can benefit from ambulation and transfer assistance:
- Allow them to have a happy and healthy life in which they may get to socializing and other activities
- Learn the appropriate ways for transporting yourself to reduce the likelihood of injuries due to wrong practices
- When someone is around to help, they have a far lower likelihood of falling and injuring themselves
- …and more!
When Should You Consider Moving into a Senior Living Community?
Being cooped up at home is never fun for anyone, regardless of age. However, if your loved one cannot go out of the house, or move from the kitchen to the bedroom, he or she may be effectively trapped at home. The consequences are not only physical; social isolation can creep in and wreak havoc on mental health as well. As a result, your loved one is more likely to acquire certain illnesses such as dementia. When your loved one moves into a senior living community that offers ambulation and transfer services, you no longer have to be concerned about moving around and can go about enjoying the best life.
