After a fall, a long period of immobility, or just simply the “creakiness” that comes with old age.
Many seniors need assistance walking, keeping their balance, moving from room to room, or transferring from bed to wheelchair.
Understanding how to transfer or ambulate for a variety of mobility needs requires great care and training and is a job for a skilled caregiver.
Sometimes families don’t understand the risk associated with in-home care. If the caregiver is not correctly trained, your loved one could get hurt and/or the caregiver could be injured. If this happens, the emotional and physical trauma can be deep. Under some circumstances, there could even be grounds for a lawsuit.
Not if you hire Seniors In Pace.

Our Registered Nurses assess not only the client but also the environment in which care is being rendered to prioritize safety.
We train our Certified Home Health Aides on proper body mechanics and exactly how to transfer and ambulate your mom or dad in our state-of-the-art continuing education center. Overseen by a team of Seniors In Place Registered Nurses, every caregiver learns how to lift, transfer, and assist with walking, and then are periodically re-evaluated in order to provide families with the most compassionate and safe care possible.
