Timely Tip: How Mobility Consultants Can Help

"Mobility consultant" may be a new term for you, but as a caregiver for an elderly parent, you'll be surprised how important they can be in helping help Mom and Dad continue to live in their own home. Here are some of the ways they can help:

  • Assessing your loved ones needs when their mobility has been impaired
  • Helping you select the right adaptive equipment such as wheelchairs and walkers
  • Assessing a home for accessibility and recommending changes
  • Designing plans to remodel existing homes to make them more accessible
  • Building a new home that is accessible
  • Helping you purchase or rent a property that is accessible or can be modified to be more accessible

Learn all about mobility consultants and how they can help you with your loved one in the feature article Aging in Place -- Mobility Consultants Help Elderly Stay in Their Home in the August 2008 edition of Caregiver's Home Companion.
