Home Care Solutions: Fall Prevention

Falls are the second leading cause of accidental death. The older adult population accounts for 75% of falls that result in accidental death. One-third of the older adults who experience a fall that results in a hip fracture will die within a year. Falls not only affect the quality of life of the individual but also influence the caregiver and family. Health care costs for falls and rehabilitation average billions every year! Even if the fall does not result in hospitalization, fear of falling becomes a major factor in how seniors live their daily lives. Fear of falling often leads to inactivity and loss of confidence. This, in turn, produces a cycle of fear, loss of self-confidence, and inactivity, thereby decreasing the quality of life and increasing the risk of falls.

Senior Homecare by Angels can identify points of interest and vulnerability in everyday life and provide home care solutions - making it easier to navigate through one's home. We can show you ways to prevent falls during our free in-home consultation process too!
