If your elderly family member is showing signs of difficulty in mobility the first port of call is always your trusted GP. Your doctor may be able to diagnose problems and prevent further deterioration. If mobility is likely to be an on-going concern they may well suggest such physical supports as a walking stick, a Zimmer frame or a mobility car. You can consider having adaptions added to your home, as well as reducing the amount of walking your loved one will have to do by ensuring every day needs are easily accessible. A Comfort Keepers® Home care worker can also often reduce the stress by offering hands-on support with personal care, meal preparation, shopping and general house work. Our staff are there to enhance independence and offer companionship.
