Most people value being able to take care of themselves. It is important that home health care staff and informal caregivers encourage you to do as much as you can for yourself. If you can get in and out of bed with little help, you may be more independent, feel better about yourself, and stay more active. This can affect your health in a good way. Your home health staff will evaluate your need for, and teach you how to use any special devices or equipment that you may need to help you increase you ability to perform some activities without the assistance of another person. Your ability to get in and out of bed yourself may help you live independently as long as possible in your own home.
