Mobility

Enhancing and maintaining mobility as a part of daily care helps to maintain a person’s function as well as physical and psychological well-being. Working on this goal will help long-term care staff address mobility and related issues including range of motion, bed mobility, transferring, walking, eliminating physical restraints, wheelchair mobility, and reducing fall risk. Residents’ health and quality of life will improve with added freedom of movement and increased activity.
