It is common for family members and caretakers to face challenges when it comes to the transfer and repositioning of retirees who have mobility difficulties. There is also the risk of the caretaker themselves sustaining damage such as back injuries, falls, or chronic pain. This is why Country Club At Woodland Hills employs specially trained staff and equipment to provide transfer assistance to members that need it.
About Our Transfer Assistance Services
There are a variety of transfer assistance devices available on the market, but we’ve found that the mechanical lift is the best, as it can help everyone especially those whose mobility is impaired. Retirees that are recovering from an injury or illness may have trouble with their balance, strength, or ability to bear weight. As a consequence, the mechanical lift will make it easier for them to be transferred from one place to another.
Benefits of Having Transfer Assistance in Your Senior Living Community
Aside from the ability to safely move retirees who are mobility challenged, the mechanical lifts that we employ at the Country Club At Woodland Hills also protect the caretakers themselves. It isn’t uncommon for those who are single-handedly caring for aging loved ones to accidentally injure themselves. The most common injury is overexertion which can lead to chronic pain.
Additionally, aging retirees who are improperly moved or repositioned may suffer from falls and accompanying injuries which can lead to bone fractures. It is for this reason that we take the process of moving our members so seriously, as it isn’t a job that should be done haphazardly. The equipment we use is handled by personnel who are trained to handle it and they know how to safely lift aging retirees without injuring them or themselves.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Senior Living Community?
Unlike past generations where extended family members tended to live in the same area, today many families are spread out all over the country. This has created a society where many retirees are living alone since their children and grandchildren may live on the other side of the nation due to work or academic concerns.
While many retirees wish to remain independent for as long as possible, the reality is that aging comes with an increased risk of ailments and injuries that can appear suddenly, and if there is no one nearby who can quickly come to their aid, the survival of the retiree may be at stake. By joining our community, members can continue to live the way they want while having access to caretakers who are available 24/7.
