The effects of a fall can be devastating for older adults. Not only can falls cause injuries that can require long-term care, it can also cause seniors to become more withdrawn and isolated because they fear falling again. With older adults accounting for 75 percent of fall-related deaths, it’s understandable that seniors who experience a fall will do what they can to prevent it from happening again.
Your loved one shouldn’t have to live in fear. With fall prevention solutions from Senior Homecare by Angels, seniors can feel safe and comfortable in their own homes. Our caregivers are committed to reducing fall-related risks through a combination of educating seniors and families about risks that can lead to falls, making living spaces safe and monitoring your loved one’s safety and well-being.
Falls Can be Prevented
Many people assume that falls are an unpreventable issue when it comes to seniors. However, the reality is that many falls can be prevented.
When an elderly adult falls, it can be caused by many different factors, including chronic conditions and mobility issues, side effects of certain medications, hazardous surroundings, lack of assistive devices and more. With comprehensive home care services, many of these risk factors can be mitigated, allowing seniors to feel confident and comfortable in their own homes without worrying about falls.
How Fall Prevention Works
Senior Homecare by Angels can help your loved one stay safe in their own home, giving you peace of mind about their well-being. Our caregivers will point out any factors in your loved one’s home that could be a fall-related risk and make sure their surroundings are safe. We can also recommend the use of assistive devices such as grab bars to minimize mobility-related issues. We also provide personal care services to help seniors manage symptoms from chronic conditions to maintain good quality of life and avoid any health issues that could lead to a fall.
Additionally, Senior Homecare by Angels is committed to increasing public awareness of falls among seniors. We can work with you to help you and your loved one understand the effects of a fall and why it’s important to consider professional fall prevention services. We also conduct free seminars for those interested in learning about the issue and making a difference in someone’s life.
With our fall prevention solutions, we can help seniors stay safe and live independently in their own homes for as long as they wish.
