Limited mobility, whether temporary or permanent, can bring a host of different challenges. There are the practical and logistical difficulties of managing daily living activities, like getting dressed, using the restroom, and even feeding one’s self.
There are also the mental challenges that can arise. It’s difficult to lose some or all of your independence. You may have to rely on others for basic tasks. You may grow bored or even depressed by your inability to leave the house or even your bed. If you’re caring for a loved one with limited mobility, you might notice them becoming more withdrawn.
