Carl (C)


The resident is not capable of performing daily activities without assistance, but is able to contribute to the action or perform part of the action independently. The assistance would, if given without special precautions, lead to the risk of physically overloading the carer. The resulting load for the carer would be in excess of safe limits for manual handling or static loads. In these cases it is necessary to use equipment that will reduce the exposure of the carer to safe levels. At the same time, these residents are able to actively contribute to the movement and it is important for the resident to maintain or improve this capacity as much as possible. The assistance given in these instances is, for example, transfers using a standing and raising aid. It is important to stimulate remaining capacity and slow down deterioration of mobility.
