Do you assist with toileting?
Family members often want their loved one to be able to use their own toilet at home.

In order to assist a client to a toilet, we require that they are able to bear their own weight while standing. In this case, we can likely assist with transferring them from a wheelchair to a toilet.

As non-medical care partners, our staff cannot insert or remove catheters, but can clean discharge bags.
