Many individuals who are in a hospital or at home following a prolonged illness or injury that impacts mobility become frustrated when they cannot move around as they desire. Mobility and ambulation are important to overall health and recovery from illness and injury. Often, this recovery includes the support of care providers skilled in lifting, moving, and supporting an individual with limited mobility. Some patients also need help with their basic needs because they not longer possess enough movement control to complete hygiene or other daily tasks without assistance. This course discusses how care providers can offer support to individuals with mobility and ambulation issues, whether that includes minimal support or more extensive lifting and transferring needs.

The mainstream health care commonly seen in western cultures is focused on medical, surgical, pharmaceutical, and technological treatment; much of the Direct Support Professional's training is based on mainstream health care treatment. There are, however, other forms of health care that are seen as alternatives to mainstream health care. Some of these are ancient practices that have been revived in modern times, while others were more recently developed.

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.

Community Health Care is the medical, personal, and social care that a patient or client receives from others.  It might be given in a wide variety of medical facilities or it can happen in the patient's home.  People receiving this care might only need it for a short time, or they may need help for a very long time.  Patients, also called clients, are referred to a facility or in-home service after they receive primary treatment for their illness or injury.  A care team works together to make sure the client's needs are met by following the client's care plan.  Direct Support Professionals are an important part of the care team, as they normally have the most contact with each patient and client.
