Do mobility limitations keep you or a loved one confined to your house most of the time? You may even have difficulty moving from your room to other areas of the house. When that is the case, your quality of life can be affected and social isolation can creep in. When you make the move to a senior living community that provides ambulation and transfer assistance like Mariposa, you can start living life to the fullest.
About Our Ambulation and Transfer Assistance
Residents with mobility limitations will require assistance to get from place to place. This includes from their apartment home to common areas within the campus, as well as from their bedroom to the kitchen, bathroom, and living space. Residents who require assistance to walk or transfer themselves are at high risk of falling and sustaining injuries if they are not afforded the proper help.
At Mariposa, our professional caregivers are well-versed in the right techniques for wheelchair transfer and selecting the most suitable safety devices to suit residents’ needs. This allows residents to live a full and engaging life, a life where what they can do and where they can go are not limited by their mobility restrictions.
Benefits of Having Ambulation And Transfer Assistance in Your Retirement Community
Our assisted living residents can benefit from ambulation and transfer assistance in numerous ways:
- Significantly reduce the chances of falling and hurting themselves when someone is on hand to provide assistance
- Become aware of the right techniques for transferring themselves, reducing the chances of injury happening due to improper techniques
- Allow them to live a happy and healthy life where they can get where they need to for socialization and other activities
- … and more!
When Should You Consider Moving into a Retirement Community?
Being stuck at home is no fun for anyone of any age. However, when you or a loved one have no means of getting out of the house, or even from the bedroom to the kitchen, you can be virtually stuck. The effects of this are more than just physical; social isolation can set in and wreak havoc on mental health as well. This, in turn, puts you at greater risk of developing certain conditions such as dementia. When you make the move to a senior living community that provides ambulation and transfer assistance, you no longer have to worry about getting where you need to be in order to live your best life.
