This resident/patient 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 indications, but light physical assistance may also be necessary.

Barbara’s remaining capacity should be stimulated.Mobility Gallery Barbara
