Get to Know Visiting Angels' In Home Supportive Services for Fall Prevention in Fremont, Newark, Union City, and Surrounding Areas
We often think about bigger concerns as we age: chronic health problems, savings on retirement, and proximity to family or grand-kids. But other factors can also have a significant effect. A fall can have long-lasting health consequences for many seniors. Preventing falls can mean taking only a few small steps, but to protect the health of your elderly loved one, those steps are extremely necessary. A caregiver from Visiting Angels of Fremont can help recognize your loved one's risk factors and help them stay healthy in their home. Our agency offers a wide range of in home supportive services to help seniors avoid costly and dangerous falls.
What Are Fall Risk Factors?
Trip and fall hazards in the home might include:
- Loose edges of rugs or carpets
- Rugs that slide on hardwood or tile surfaces
- Tightly clustered furniture
- Cluster in walkways
- Wet floors in the kitchen or bathrooms
- Dim lighting throughout the house
Caregivers know how to look for these factors and any others that might make a home unsafe. A home care provider from Visiting Angels of Fremont might recommend non-slip pads on floors, grab bars in bathrooms, or other tools that can make mobility easier.
There are other health conditions that can increase the risk of a fall, too. Seniors should pay close attention to their eye health in case any vision assistance is needed as they age. Mobility devices can help seniors avoid trips and falls and should be used continually when recommended by a doctor. Maintaining the same medication regimen every day can also reduce side effects that might cause changes in vision, blood pressure, fatigue, and other health conditions that contribute to falls.
