A loss of mobility can be a challenge for both you and your loved one. When your loved one can no longer get in and out of bed with ease, or when they become dependent on a walker or wheelchair for mobility, it’s time to consider their options for lifts and transfers. While a loss of mobility may seem devastating at first, it doesn’t have to be. There are many options and devices available to help your loved one retain a sense of freedom in their home – even if that freedom looks different than before.
That being said lifts and transfers shouldn’t be taken lightly. They pose a serious risk of injury for yourself and your loved one if done incorrectly. In fact, many care settings consider lifts and transfers a high risk activity.
