Elderly Fall Prevention Services in Berwick, NS and the Surrounding Areas of Annapolis Valley
With Elderly Fall Prevention from Senior Homecare by Angels, Seniors in the Annapolis Valley Can Get the Support They Need to Avoid Fall-Related Risks
Falls are a frequent concern among the senior population in the Annapolis Valley region of Nova Scotia. Seniors can be more susceptible to falls than other age groups due to age-related mobility and cognitive issues. Not only can it take a while for seniors to recover from a fall, but it can also make seniors worry that they’ll fall again. Even when a senior doesn’t require hospitalization after a fall, the fear of another fall happening can cause them to lose their self-confidence and isolate themselves, lowering their quality of life. This can also increase a senior’s risk of falling again. Help your aging loved one avoid costly falls by opting for Senior Homecare by Angels in the Annapolis Valley's elderly fall prevention program.
Here Are Some Additional Facts About the Impact of Falls for Seniors
- The senior population in Canada accounts for 75 percent of falls that result in accidental death
- Falls are the second-leading cause of accidental death among seniors
- One-third of seniors who experience a hip fracture after a fall and have to be hospitalized will die within a year
