Barbara

Barbara is able to look after herself and mobilise with a little support
This resident is partly capable of performing daily activities independently and the assistance she requires is not generally physically demanding for the caregiver.

Assistance may consist of verbal support, feedback or instructions, but light physical assistance may also be necessary. This assistance can be provided in combination with small aids (walking aids, support or grips and handles) or adaptation to the residents environment. Barbara’s remaining capability should be stimulated.

  • Can support herself and may use a walker
  • Dependent on the caregiver in some situations
  • The light green of her blouse indicates slight a risk of static overload for example during assistance with daily hygiene activities
  • Stimulation of functional mobility is very important

Empowering Movement

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.
