Fall Prevention for Seniors
It's unfortunate to know that falls are the primary cause of serious injuries among seniors. We understand how much their independence means to them, which is why fall prevention is crucial. At Visiting Angels Catawba Valley, we’ve developed a Safe and Steady fall prevention program tailored to the needs of the elderly living at home. Our program aims to minimize the risk of slips, trips, and falls, ensuring they can enjoy their lives without fear.
We provide fall prevention in Caldwell, Burke, Catawba, and Alexander Counties and can help at individual homes and assisted living. Our senior care team understands the importance of making seniors feel loved, valued, and secure as they age. That's why our compassionate caregivers are committed to ensuring that your loved one can age where they feel happiest, safest, and most comfortable.
With fall prevention as one of our top priorities, we work hard to reduce the risk of serious injuries, hospitalization, or even mortality. Each client receives an individualized program where we'll work to maintain their independence and decrease any potential risk factors that we see.
What Fall Prevention Care Can Provide
Older adults are prone to experiencing falls, and every year, around one in three seniors suffers from severe falls.
The following are common risk factors for falling:
- Hearing loss
- Stiff or painful joints
- Health complications
- Decreased strength
- Poor coordination
- Limited mobility
- Reduced eyesight
- Cognitive disorders
- Taking multiple medications
As we age, the likelihood of experiencing a fall and getting seriously injured increases, and seniors can suffer from injuries that can have life-altering or even life-threatening consequences. Hip fractures are one of the most severe injuries that seniors can experience, and the recovery period for a hip fracture can be lengthy and may require transitional care at home.
Some seniors won't fully recover from a hip fracture, decreasing their independence overnight. However, our senior fall prevention professionals are here to create a personalized plan so we can help them maintain as much freedom as possible. We'll also work to reduce their chance of having an additional fall.
We can also help with the following home care tasks:
And much more, so get in touch with us to discuss what services you’re interested in. We’ll spend time going over all your concerns and questions and come up with a program tailored to exactly what your loved one needs. This will decrease everyone’s stress, and you’ll feel relieved knowing your senior is in good hands.
