Albert can perform daily activities independently
This resident is able to perform daily activities independently without assistance from another person. The resident may require special aids or appliances to assist their independent function.
- Ambulatory, but may use a walking stick for support
- Independent – can clean and dress himself
- The green colour of his book indicates that he presents a low risk of static or dynamic overload for the caregiver
- Stimulation of functional mobility is very important to maintain independence
The mobility gallery plays a key role in empowering movement in both acute and long-term care, by enabling an assessment of an individual’s level of mobility, and how this will impact the quality of care.
