Group and Care Homes

Group and Care Homes for adults and elderly

Those living at group and care homes all have one thing in common: for different reasons they can’t or won’t live at home. However, their needs for everyday help and transferring can vary considerably.

Just within the group of patients in a care home, we see persons with different degrees of functionality and mobility. For those who need help to manage transfers, it is a question of finding the best aid to enable the individual patient to be as active as possible, which simultaneously is functional and safe for the staff.
 
Group homes can be homes for people with both psychic and physic disabilities; some are completely independent in their transfers, whereas multi-handicapped patients, for instance, can have a very big and specific need for help. For these patients, who cannot themselves participate in the transfers, the choice of sling fabric and fit is extremely important in order to handle the task in the best possible way.
