Visiting Angels' Care Services in St. Charles, MO Are Here To Help You Support an Immobile Parent

Visiting Angels of Bangor Can Help Prevent Falls with Our Care Services

It can be a tremendous challenge once an aging parent is no longer mobile, preventing him or her to move around or to get places without assistance. Limited mobility often becomes a problem, catching most family caregivers off guard. This can be quite demanding, as daily routines become a struggle.

Your natural inclination as a caring son or daughter is to step in and do what you can, but that often isn’t enough. Care services are often required to prevent your parent’s quality of life from declining significantly. At Visiting Angels of St. Charles, we are here to help your loved one live comfortably within their home.

Reasons for Limited Mobility

Knowing the reasons for limited mobility can help you deal with the effects, if not prevent it altogether. These reasons include an inactive lifestyle, obesity, arthritis, diabetes, depression, and recent hospital stays, among others. Once mobility is limited, your parent may be at risk of becoming bedridden, which presents even more challenges. This makes it all the more important to know the reasons beforehand, so you can possibly catch them early.

Staying on top of all of this can be exhausting for one person, often leading to growing impatience and caregiver burnout. It can even lead to anxiety and depression. Our care services can help ease the burden and keep you in a healthy place.

Services for Those With Limited Mobility

While your parent’s life will undoubtedly change due to their limited mobility, his or her quality of life doesn’t have to suffer because of it. We will provide your parent with the help they need to live a full life.

This includes providing services like meal prep, medication reminders, personal care, and transportation. Not only that but our professional caregivers are also trustworthy companions, ensuring that your parent doesn’t feel alone.

All of our services have one goal, which is to allow your parent to age in place. This is the preference for most elderly Americans, and your parent most likely shares that preference. For this reason, care services should be considered as they are a much better option than a nursing home or assisted living facility.

Avoiding Falls in the Home

Falling in the home is an even bigger concern when your parent has limited mobility. Luckily, there are some easy solutions, many of which can be pointed out and taken care of with the help of our care services. In the scenario that your parent does fall, there will be a caregiver available to provide immediate assistance.
