Helpline: Disabilities - Mobility Support
Functioning Disability and Health
Mobility issues result in severe outcomes for the disabled, including seniors and children. It can affect their quality of life, and if not taken proper care of, it may result in accidents, such as falls. Mental health problems, such as severe Alzheimer's, can also create mobility issues.
No matter what the cause of the mobility problem, functioning disability and health go hand in hand. A disabled person unable to walk is more susceptible to other health issues. Depending on your loved one's overall health conditions and the type of disability, they may require full-time or moderate caregiving. If the disability is temporary, you may choose to hire a home care service for assistance. In case of a permanent disability and mobility issue, you may decide to take the role of a full-time family caregiver.

They can give you tips about how to provide quality care to a disabled person and what type of precautionary measures to take regarding mobility.
