This service involves matching a carefully selected Companion with a Client who is living with issues related to movement and functionality. Sometimes the “small stuff” in life can become very difficult for seniors, as abilities such as standing up, holding and gripping, or reaching and stretching have become less easy to accomplish. By working in conjunction with other professionals such as Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Speech Pathologists, and/or Recreational Therapists, specific programs can be carried out in the Client's home, care facility, local gym, or even outdoors. This service may also include walking assistance or mobility supports, and balanced exercises relating to pre- or post-operative recuperation. Paradigm Home Health Services will work towards the goals of you and your loved one, whatever they may be, and will support you every step of the way.
Here are some real-life examples of Paradigm’s Recover & Rehabilitation Service:
· Blaine, who was recovering from a serious brain injury, would often go with his Paradigm Companion to the YMCA to use the weights and cardio equipment in the exercise room as part of his rehabilitation.
· Helga was regularly assisted by her Companion in staying motivated. Through encouragement, friendship and “counting reps”, Helga was able to achieve a fuller range of body motion while staying active in between her regular appointments with her physiotherapist.
