Doris (D)


The resident is not capable of performing daily activities independently or to contribute to this actively in any substantial or reliable way. The assistance in this case will, without special precautions, result in a risk of physically overloading the carer. It is necessary to use equipment that eliminates this risk of overloading. The resident, in this case, can not contribute substantially to the movement. In spite of this, wherever, and whenever, possible, it remains important to activate these residents. The assistance provided in this case is, for example, transfers with a sling lift. An extra point to note is prevention of the risks associated with immobility, (e.g. provide good skin care). It is important to slow down deterioration of mobility.
