When a patient becomes unable to feed themselves or get themselves to the bathroom it is time to bring in some help. We refer caregivers who treat your loved one with respect and dignity.
Patients that are heavier than their family member caregiver are a unique challenge. In many cases a daughter is caring for her elderly father and cannot lift him to get him in a wheelchair or on and off the toilet. At this point it is time to bring in help that has the ability to manage obese patients so injury does not occur.
In some cases special equipment is used to assist with lifting a patient. We have all types of caregivers with the skills necessary to assist with most patient care.
