BED-BOUND PATIENT CARE
Patients who are bed-bound require special care, for when incapacity forces them to bed and limits their activities, their bodies reacts negatively.
These problems include muscles stiffening and contracting, skin breaking down and forming wounds known as bed sores and their lungs getting wetter and less able to breathe effectively. Sometimes small blood clots can form in their blood vessels and cause complications. Even the best mattress in the world becomes an uncomfortable prison if you can never escape from it.
Among other things, our caregivers change the patient’s position frequently; assist at mealtimes and when taking medication; perform daily skin checks; give bed baths and generally assist with grooming.
Our facilities are geared for patients with almost any disability, including bed-bound patients and patients in wheelchairs. We can assist them with movement and speech impairment and daily activities like ablution functions, feeding, dressing and general mobility.
