Mobility is an important part of human activity. From an early age, people have a need to move from place to place, and they learn ways to do this regardless of their physical condition. Most patients, clients, and residents are used to an active lifestyle, so they can become frustrated when they cannot move around like they did before an illness, injury, or old age set in. The Direct Support Professional should understand this frustration, and learn to help patients, clients, and residents with ambulation. Sometimes this means understanding their limitations and setting boundaries, while at other times it means helping them use devices like walkers and wheelchairs. This course will teach current and future Direct Support Professionals several ways to assist a patient, client, or resident with ambulation.
