Workers’ Compensation Claims For Elder Care Professionals
As the baby boomer generation enters its senior years, the need for elder care professionals such as nurses, home health care aides, physical therapists and others is growing. Nursing homes may require more staff, and more people are looking to have care provided to them in their homes.
This increase in need is resulting in growth in the industry. One result of that growth is the increase in elder care professionals suffering work injuries.
Elder Care Is A Physically Demanding Profession
Many people do not realize how physically demanding it can be to provide care for our aging seniors. A key task can be the moving of bedridden seniors or helping those with limited mobility. Bedridden seniors need to be moved regularly to avoid bedsores. Seniors with limited mobility may need help getting in and out of bed or going to the bathroom, for example.
Moving and lifting these patients on a regular basis can cause back injuries and other types of injuries that can interfere with or limit a worker’s ability to perform his or her duties.
If you have suffered an injury related to your job, we can help you pursue all available benefits through the workers’ compensation system.
