Fall Prevention for Seniors

Fall prevention and safety care for Eagle County towns such as Gypsum, Vail, Beaver Creek, Edwards, Avon, Glenwood Springs, Aspen, and surrounding areas.

Do you ever worry about your senior loved one falling and getting hurt? Have they recently experienced a fall? If so, you’re in the right place, and we’re here to be a central part of your loved one’s care team to reduce the risk of falls and maximize their safety at home.

Visiting Angels of Eagle is a non-medical home care agency. With our reliable homecare professionals by their side, seniors across the mountain region can enjoy their golden years safely, while also experiencing everything this beautiful area has to offer.

How Our In-Home Fall Prevention Services Help Seniors

As a caregiving agency, we provide local seniors with in-home care services in their own homes. We offer a variety of in-home care services and fall prevention is integrated into all of them, as it plays such an important role in successfully aging at home. Fall prevention involves identifying and remedying fall hazards, something that as we age and our senses become less sharp, is vitally needed to avoid missteps.

Feel Safe at Home with Trained Caregivers

Specific ways that our caregivers provide fall prevention services depends on the type of home care your loved one receives. 

  • Companion care services keep seniors’ homes neat and organized, which reduces the risks of falls and trips. Older adults also risk accidentally injuring themselves trying to take on home upkeep, which as we know turns into a lot of work day in and day out. A companion caregiver will happily take on this role with respect and compassion and can help with things like light housekeeping, laundry, meal prepping and planning, and errand running, all while providing joyful companionship.
  • Personal care services are for seniors who need mobility assistance with physical activities of daily living like morning routines, safely showering, toileting, and grooming, and moving in and outside of the house. Clients who receive our personal care services would most likely be unable to live at home without that added support.

Receive a Home Safety Assessment

We also offer home safety assessments, after your free, no-obligation consultation. This assessment helps us get a 360 degree view of your loved one’s life so that we can develop the perfect custom care plan to match their situation with their needs. During this assessment, we will:

  • Perform a thorough walkthrough of your loved one’s home to identify potential safety hazards and fall risks. 
  • Discuss our findings with you and make recommendations for improving the home’s, and your loved one’s, safety.

Why is Fall Prevention Important for Eagle Seniors?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 25% of seniors experience falls annually. Unfortunately, not even half of the people who fall will let their care team know. This makes it a leading cause of injury, hospitalizations, and sometimes even death. However, slips, trips, and falls can result in more than just physical injuries. They can also have a drastic negative affect on your loved ones confidence, causing emotional and social stress which can affect their overall quality of life.
