Long-term Care Mobility Gallery

Long-term residents are mainly in the facility to meet their needs for safety and care. The primary goals for caregivers in the long-term care setting are usually maintenance of a resident’s functional mobility, maintaining resident wellbeing over long periods of time, and preventing the negative effects of immobility, such as falls, pressure injuries and functional incontinence.¹

Meet the residents

Residents in long-term care, especially the more elderly, can often be frail and sometimes disoriented with deteriorating mental capacity and/or functional mobility. While many residents have a mobility level of A or B, Arjo’s experience has shown that the majority of long term care populations are made up of residents in the C, D and E mobility levels.
