Falls are one of the biggest health and safety concerns for seniors. They can impact an older adult’s life in more ways than one, often leading to prolonged periods of hospitalization and reduced independence. Seniors are often afraid to leave their home due to the fear of falling, which can negatively affect their physical and mental health as well as social life. All of this can result in increased feelings of helplessness, anxiety, sadness, isolation and depression.

That's why Visiting Angels offers fall prevention services for seniors throughout Southeast Central Texas. We help seniors stay safe and avoid being injured in a fall through comprehensive in-home elderly care services.

The Risks of Fall-Related Injuries for Seniors

According to senior care experts:

  • One in three seniors falls every year
  • One in five seniors sustains a serious injury as a result of a fall, including a broken hip, fractured bones, head trauma, and other injuries
  • Seniors who fall once are more likely to fall again
  • 800,000+ older adults are hospitalized due to fall-related injuries each year
  • Recovery from a fall-related injury can take up to 12 months in a rehabilitation facility
  • Many seniors never return home from a rehabilitation facility

While it is important for seniors to educate themselves on how to prevent falls, they should not be afraid to lead normal, active lives as they age. While many think that falls just randomly happen for older adults, the reality is that falls are caused by one or more risk factors. Risk factors for falls include medical conditions, unsafe home environment, poor eyesight, use of multiple medications and dehydration, to name a few. If your loved one knows these risk factors, they can prevent falls.
