If you have been told you have arthritis or maladies that affect movement, a mobility device is vital to managing your independence. Blackhawk retirement homes understand this and for this reason allow access for crutches, zimmerframes, walking sticks, lift chairs or wheelchairs that assist movement. Many retirement homes will be adapted for people who use wheelchairs and lift chairs with cushioning will be available to assist those who find it hard to stand up from a seated position. Making your individual needs clear is always advised because every retirement home varies in its operation, however most facilities will be happy to oblige in the main.
It is tough, hard work and tiring to care for a member of the family who is suffering with health issues over a successive period of time. Although it can be disturbing to hand over the reigns and allow someone else to look after your elderly relative, you should take a break when you can to fill up your batteries - Blackhawk respite care is the best option. Convenient and practical, this service can be set up within your home for a few hours or you can adopt residential respite care where your loved one can stay overnight. If you are looking to go on holiday or make a business trip you can have the peace of mind that your elderly parents or indeed any senior in your family set up is being looked after with due respect and attention.
