Chair Caddie Caregiving Situations
Assisting a person into the chair
With the Chair CADDIE, the person being seated is able to approach the table and remain standing, either supported by a walker, rollator or crutches. The caregiver releases the rear brakes and moves the chair directly behind the standing person.
When the front of the chair touches the back of the person’s legs and the rear brakes engaged, caregiver can assist the standing person get seated into the chair.
The Chair CADDIE eliminates the need for the person to shuffle backwards while attempting to align him/herself with the seat of the chair.
Assisting the seated person up-to the table
Once the person has been comfortably seated, the caregiver releases the rear brakes of the Chair CADDIE and guides the seated person up-to the table.
For safety, the rear brakes are engaged once the seated person is properly positioned at the table!
Assisting the seated person away-from the table
With the Chair CADDIE, the caregiver releases the brakes and gently moves the seated person away-from the table. Once the rear brakes are engaged and with the person still seated, the caregiver positions the rollator directly in front of the seated person.
The seated person rises from the chair, takes hold of the rollator and walks directly away from the table.
With the Chair CADDIE there is no need for the person being assisted to complete a series of “shuffle steps” when approaching or exiting the table.
