BROOKWOOD PRIVATE CAREGIVING ASSOCIATION
Why Private Caregivers?
Many people choose to live with a disability or chronic illness. They make these life choices in an attempt to lead full and active lives. However, many people with disabilities or chronic illnesses have trouble managing their health needs on their own. Whether they have difficulty walking, eating, bathing or sleeping, they often have trouble staying healthy. Many times, family members are unable to provide the necessary care for their loved ones. That's where private caregivers come in. People need personal care when they are sick or injured. For instance, someone with a hip or joint problem may need help getting in and out of bed or standing up. Someone with MS may need help walking from room to room. Or a person with dementia may need help with daily tasks like eating and toileting. Basically, people need help when they can't perform manual tasks on their own. That's when private caregivers come in handy.
Caregiving Services In Transportation
The transportation of people with disabilities has become a major concern in the past few decades. Thanks to accessible vehicles, people with disabilities can now travel at their own pace without interference. However, some disabled citizens prefer not to have assistance when they’re driving. They might also request that their caretaker, such as someone from “ACC Medlink,” accompany them while they’re on the road. In this case, the caretaker would need specific training so they can assist their charge without hindering their progress.
People with disabilities often need assistance when traveling. Airports and railway stations are especially busy and noisy spaces that many with disabilities avoid at all costs. Wheelchairs and other mobility aids shove their way through the crowds, creating an overwhelming noise level for those who are audibly impaired. For example, some people with hearing impairments experience discomfort from the deafening noise produced by a throng of travelers. In addition, crowds at railway stations and airports can be hazardous for people in wheelchairs; stairwells can be inaccessible or insufficiently wide to accommodate chairs.
