Barbara

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 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 resident/patients environment. Barbara’s remaining capability 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 the caregiver.
  • A risk of static overload may occur for example during assistance with daily hygiene activities.
  • Stimulation of functional mobility is very important.
