Mobility issues are the most common disability, accounting for 57% of all disabilities and are particularly prevalent within the older population. At SuperCarers, we understand how effective mobility care can transform a client’s life.
The reduced ability to move round can lead to unsteadiness while walking, difficulty getting in and out of chairs, or increase the risk of falls, as well as reducing the overall quality of life. Lots of different factors can reduce mobility - from muscle weakness, joint problems, pain, disease, and neurological problems, sometimes, it can even be caused by a combination of several mild problems.
How mobility care can help
Reduced mobility can affect numerous areas of life, reducing independence and making everyday activities difficult. Effective mobility care can truly transform lives and SuperCarers ensures that all clients and their families supporting them can live safely, with confidence and independence.
We have carers on the platform with experience in working with people with all kinds of mobility issues, from people recovering from broken bones and falls to those with arthritis and neuropathy. Furthermore, we can help you find a carer(s) with training and experience in moving and handling and working with different mobility aids and assistive technology.
