Falls are the second leading cause of accidental death. The older adult population accounts for seventy-five percent of falls that result in accidental death. One third of the older adults who experience a fall that results in a hip fracture and are hospitalized 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.
From the most overlooked areas of the home, to making it easier to navigate through one’s home, Senior Homecare by Angels can identify points of interest and vulnerability in everyday life.
Our mission is to increase the public awareness and importance of this sometimes overlooked issue. Are you aware that falls can often times be prevented? Senior Homecare by Angels can help show you how with a free in-home assessment. We also conduct free seminars educating all interested individuals who want to make a difference in someone’s life.
