How Senior Care Services in Ogden Can Help Prevent Falls

As your parent or loved one ages, they are at a greater risk of injuring themselves due to a fall. This is because seniors' bodies can be more delicate; meaning a fall has the potential to lead to serious or even life-threatening injuries. With the danger of falls being so great, at Visiting Angels® Davis-Weber, we are committed to providing senior care services that help reduce the risk of injury due to falls. Below, we've listed just a few of the ways our senior care service can help seniors throughout the Ogden area prevent falls.

Help with Daily Tasks and Activities. Our senior care services can help your loved one in the Ogden area by providing assistance with day-to-day tasks and activities such as light housekeeping and meal preparation. With this assistance, your loved one can reduce the risk of fallling while performing more dangerous tasks such as reaching high shelves or climbing stairs with items in hand. Additionally, if your loved one suffers from strength or mobility issues, our compassionate caregivers can help reduce the risk of falls by providing bathing and dressing assistance.

Care Services Come with Monitoring. Our care services help reduce the risk of falls by providing seniors in the Ogden area with the monitoring they need to remain safe. Our care also provides a respite for the family caregivers. Whether our caregivers visit a few times a week or we assemble a team of caregivers to provide 24-hour monitoring, we'll be there to make sure your loved one stays safe and avoids unnecessary risks.

Medication Reminders. Occasionally, seniors are prescribed medication that can cause dizziness or affect their balance. These side-effects can increase a senior's risk of falling and injuring themselves. While it is important your loved one reviews their medications with their doctor, our senior care services providers can keep an eye on your loved one as they become familiar with side-effects from new medications. We can also provide reminders so your loved one doesn't miss or repeat a dosage by accident.
