Did you know that more than 85% of individuals over 65 years old will suffer from some form of disability? That number is frighteningly high, and it only seems to be on the rise as time goes on.

When your loved one moves from their home to Discovery Village At Sarasota Bay, you are sure they are safe and comfortable. You can’t always be there to provide them with personal care or physical support at home. But when mobility transfer assistance is provided by our trained staff members who understand seniors, moving becomes less stressful—and safer—for both parties. One of our caregivers will gladly provide mobility transfer assistance so your loved one can sit comfortably in wheelchairs or wheel-in beds.

About Our Transfer Assistance Services

Mobility transfer assistance services help aging family members and people with disabilities move in and out of bed, bathtubs, wheelchairs, walkers, sofas, or other locations. For seniors who live independently in private homes or assisted living facilities, these services are an important part of staying independent. We can also offer transfer assistance services on-site, provided by nurses or specially trained aides who come into residents’ rooms to assist them with transferring (especially if their condition requires that they do not get out of bed without help).

Benefits of Having Transfer Assistance in Your Retirement Community

A major concern for adults in their golden years is maintaining their independence, which is important both on an emotional level and on a practical level, as it can greatly affect one’s sense of self-worth and help one maintain a high quality of life. Aging family members often have to get in and out of bed each day, requiring them to move from their sitting position onto a standing position and then onto their feet before they begin moving about. Getting into and out of a wheelchair also requires that person to be transferred from a sitting position into a lying down or prone position. This activity places stress on muscles and joints, so transferring from place to place without pain is vital.

When Should You Consider Moving into a Retirement Community?

If you or a loved one is facing any mobility challenge, or you want to live a worry-free lifestyle, moving into a senior living community may be a great option. For many people, aging in place—or staying put—is ideal. But if your needs have changed and it’s time to move out of your home, Discovery Village At Sarasota Bay offers specialized services tailored to seniors’ unique needs as they age.
