Description

Lift Program for Family Caregivers

Does your loved one have trouble with mobility? Are you worried about how to help them out of bed or out of a car? Or, do you just want to be prepared for what may lie ahead?

During this hour and a half program, two physical therapists will lead you through the proper and safe techniques to transfer your loved one who has mobility issues due to Parkinson’s disease. This program is intended for family care partners only. There will be 5 interactive stations 1) Sit to stand 2) Transfer in and out of bed 3) Transfer in the bathroom 4) Transfers in and out of the car 5) Lastly, how to get up off the floor. Each caregiver will participate, rotating to each station and practicing with other caregivers. You will also learn when it is necessary to seek help.

Led by JJ Flentke PT, DPT, CEEAA, clinical director of Boomerange Therapy Works and Mike Colburn.

If you have physical limitation, please let the instructors know before class.

This is a program, adopted from the National Parkinson’s Foundation Ohio that we are happy to bring to Vacouver and our Parkinson's community
