Sadly many of our nation's elderly have mobility restrictions due to, medical problems, Alzheimer's disease, injuries, and the effects of aging. Many people are unaware that Alzheimer's disease and dementia can affect our loved one's ability to walk, but as these diseases progress they affect areas of the brain that are responsible for not only movement, but also balance.
You may notice your loved one walking more slowly, or needing a cane or a walker for mobility. During this time, he or she may also begin to appear extremely uncoordinated. This is usually accompanied by symptoms, such as tremors, slowness of movement, muscle stiffness or rigidity, and the tendency to fall or look off balance.
If your loved one is experiencing these symptoms, you're probably nervous about them living at home because they may struggle with simple tasks, such as doing the laundry, washing dishes, bathing, and taking out the garbage. Unfortunately, many senior citizens live in fear of being forced out of their home and relocated into a long-term care facility. Fortunately in-home care allows seniors with mobility restrictions the opportunity to get the assistance they need without having to leave the comfort of their own home.
