Elder Care Services to Help Prevent Falls and Injuries in Greater Fairfield, CT

Essential Elder Care Services Can Help Seniors Avoid Unnecessary Falls in Fairfield, Trumbull, Westport, and Surrounding Areas

Many of us feel most safe in our homes; we feel in control of our environment and have been able to customize the space to meet our individual needs and preferences. But for many seniors, trip and fall hazards in the home can be very common and dangerously life-changing.

Falls can impact a senior’s quality of life physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. Extended recuperation in the hospital, a live-in facility, or physical therapy can be draining on the mind, body, and bank account. Loss of mobility or an increase in physical pain and discomfort can also lead to increased isolation and loneliness.

Common Fall Risks 

Elder care services can help prevent falls by identifying hazards in the home or habits that need to be modified as your loved one ages. Our home caregivers in Fairfield, Trumbull, Westport, Shelton, and the surrounding area can help those who have experienced a fall to keep up with their physical therapy, medication regimens, and activity or dietary recommendations from doctors, leading to a faster and more complete recovery.

Common fall hazards for seniors include:

  • Loose edges of rugs, carpeting, or doorways
  • Tight hallways or furniture and clutter in walkways
  • Mobility devices not used effectively or continually
  • No grab bars or non-slip pads in the bathroom or kitchen

Elder care services like Visiting Angels of Fairfield know what to look for in the home to keep your loved one safe from harm. Falls can also be the result of pain and discomfort that comes from not adhering to medication regimens or not reporting side effects to the doctor. Our home care providers understand that many seniors have complex medical needs; our job is to help your loved one access the right medical care and facilitate any daily needs that may result from their care.
