Fall Prevention

Home Support Services Golf,Senior Care Golf,Home Care GolfFalls are the second leading cause of accidental death in America. Seventy-five percent of these falls occur in the senior adult population. One third of senior adults, who sustain a hip fracture as a result of falling, die within a year. Even if the fall does not result in hospitalization, fear of falling becomes a major factor. Fear leads to inactivity and loss of confidence, which in turn decreases the quality of life and increases the risk of falls. Fear is not only associated with falling down but also with getting up once having fallen. Dispel this fear by making everyday living spaces easier to manage. Falls not only affect the quality of life for that loved one, it also influences the caregiver and family.
