Home Care Assistance for Fall Prevention in Glendale, AZ and the Surrounding Area

Visiting Angels Offers Excellent Fall Prevention Home Care Assistance for Seniors in Glendale, Peoria, Phoenix, and Nearby Cities

While it is common knowledge that falls can cause severe physical injuries to seniors, it is far less well-known that falls can damage a person’s emotional well-being as well as their social life. Falling can drastically impact your loved one’s quality of life and make them fearful of leaving the house or doing the things they love. This can lead to loneliness, anxiety, depression, and social isolation. To combat this, Visiting Angels of Glendale offers home care assistance to help your loved one prevent falls as well as improve their quality of life.

How Falls Impact Your Loved One’s Life

Every year, one in five seniors suffers a serious or lasting injury from a fall such as a concussion, broken hip, or fracture. In general, it takes a lot longer for injuries in seniors to heal than in younger adults, which can drastically increase the time your loved one has to spend in a long-term senior care facility. Though oftentimes, seniors who go to long-term care facilities for a fall-induced injury never return home again for fear of falling or inability to heal completely. Over 800,000 seniors are admitted to the hospital every year due to falls, and most seniors who fall once are likely to fall again. Other important statistics about falls in the elderly community:

  • Every 19 minutes a senior dies from a fall
  • Falls are the leading cause of fatal injury in seniors
  • One in four senior Americans experience a fall each year
  • The average cost of treating a fall is $30,000

At Visiting Angels of Glendale, we want to help you prevent this from happening to your aging loved one, which is why we offer home care assistance that is specifically made to prevent falls.
