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.
