    • General

      The role that restorative care plays in the maintenance and/or return of functional ability is significant for a number of reasons. Firstly, patients that permanently lose the ability to perform activities of daily living on their own will become dependent on caregivers to do everything for them. Conversely, patients that are able to maintain the ability to complete activities of daily living experience a greatly minimized risk of falls, pressure ulcers, weight loss, dehydration, bowel and bladder incontinence, and other negative consequences. 

      For the most part, patients that manage to avoid the aforementioned problematic issues experience a substantially enriched quality of life compared to their more dependent counterparts. Restorative nursing assistants are the key members of the healthcare team that frequently help patients maintain their functional status and independence. By assisting patients to remain independent for as long as possible, restorative nursing assistants help people lead more dignified lifestyles.
