Mobility Care

Mobility issues are the most common disability, accounting for 57% of all disabilities and are particularly prevalent within the older population. Mobility care is an important consideration when designing a care plan and at Starlight Healthcare we understand how effective mobility care can transform a client’s life.

The reduced ability to move round can lead to unsteadiness while walking, difficulty getting in and out of chairs, or increase the risk of falls, as well as reducing the overall quality of life. Lots of different factors can reduce mobility – from muscle weakness, joint problems, pain, disease, and neurological problems, sometimes, it can even be caused by a combination of several mild problems.

How mobility care can help

Reduced mobility can affect numerous areas of life, reducing independence and making everyday activities difficult. Effective mobility care can truly transform lives and Starlight Healthcare ensures that all clients and their families supporting them can live safely, with confidence and independence.

We have experience working with people with all kinds of mobility issues, from people recovering from broken bones and falls to those with arthritis and neuropathy. Furthermore, our carers have training and experience in moving and handling and working with different mobility aids and assistive technology.

We know it’s important to take a holistic approach in order to provide a personalised care service. To achieve this, our carers will routinely review their care plans and adapt them according to changing needs and abilities whilst always respecting the client’s wishes and dignity. We are confident that we will be able to find you a carer to meet the specific needs of you or your loved one.
