If you have a loved one that has limited mobility or suffers from a stroke, it is important that there is an assistant, preferably a physical therapist, to help with daily activities. After periods of illness or immobilization, you may find that it becomes difficult to move around. Even small movements like moving in and out of a bed or a chair can become a hassle and require the assistance of another person.
You might also require the use of walking aids like a walker or a cane to help you maintain balance when moving about.
