ArjoHuntleigh Knowledge Mobility Gallery Barbara Long

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. This assistance can be provided in combination with minor aids (walking aids, support or grips and handles) or resident/patient environment adaptation. Barbara’s remaining capacity should be stimulated.

Characteristics: 

  • Can support herself to some degree and uses walking frame or similar
  • Dependent on caregiver in some situations
  • Usually no risk of dynamic overload for staff. A risk of static overload can occur if not using proper aids
  • Stimulation of functional mobility is very important
