Senior Care Services in Charlottesville to Prevent Falls

As your loved one ages, they may be more susceptible to injuries from falls. Seniors’ bodies are often more fragile than younger bodies, meaning it's more likely a fall will lead to a serious or even life-threatening injury. At Visiting Angels® Charlottesville, we're committed to working with our clients and their families to provide senior care services that help prevent these dangerous falls.  Below, we've listed some of the ways our caregivers can work with you to help prevent your loved one from falling. 

Seniors are sometimes prescribed medication whose side-effects, like dizziness and balance problems, can increase their risk of falling. You can help lower your loved one's risk of falling by encouraging them to regularly review their medications with their doctor.

Our senior care services at Visiting Angels Charlottesville help to lower any unnecessary side-effects from medications by providing medication reminders to ensure our clients take the right dose at the right time.

Several day-to-day tasks that your loved one is used to performing may now put them at a higher risk of falling. Activities such as vacuuming where your loved one might trip over a loose cord, or meal preparation if your loved one has to climb a stepladder to reach a top shelf, put your loved one at a higher risk of falling. It's important to remove tripping hazards around your loved one's home, and educate family members about how to keep your loved one safe.

If your loved one requires help with day-to-day tasks, the senior care services we provide in the Charlotte area may be right for them. We offer assistance with a variety of activities, including light housekeeping and meal preparation to keep our clients from having to perform higher-risk activities. 

Care Services for Seniors in Charlottesville with Mobility Issues

If your loved one suffers from mobility issues or strength concerns, their chances of falling may be increased. By encouraging your loved one to enroll in a light exercise program, you can help them build up their strength and balance.

At Visiting Angels Charlottesville, our personal care services help keep seniors with strength concerns and mobility issues safe from falling by offering bathing and dressing assistance as well as monitoring and mobility assistance.
