Sometimes moving around safely becomes difficult when a person is sick. If you are caring for someone who is ill, you may have to help them move around safely. The written material and videos below show some examples of how this may be done. Sometimes your health care provider may suggest a review by an occupational therapist or a physiotherapist to help you move safely. Please contact your case manager for more details if you would like more information.
