If you are caring for an aging loved one and have not already done so, you need to give some serious thought to fall prevention. Falls are the number one cause of non-fatal and fatal injury in adults 65 and over. Many of these falls can be prevented through proper prevention strategies. Our home care services in New London can actually be a major component of a comprehensive fall prevention program. 

The three most helpful and effective ways you can help prevent falls for your loved one are:

  1. Have a medical fall-risk evaluation. Bring your loved one to their doctor and ask for a medical evaluation of their fall risk. Tell them about any prior falls, even if they didn’t lead to injury. Ask about their medications and their side effects, either alone or in combination with one another. Finally, follow up with any specialist referrals--especially optometry, hearing, and podiatry.
  2. Maintain their muscle strength. Even if you have to plead, stress the importance of maintaining muscle strength to your loved one and the critical role it can play in fall prevention.
  3. Consider home care from a local, trusted provider like Visiting Angels® Groton. Why? Because in addition to all the things we can provide to keep them safe, we’ve integrated fall prevention into all our home care services, beginning with your initial, free consultation. During the consultation, we conduct a thorough fall-risk assessment of your loved one’s living environment and make any and all suggestions necessary.

By helping lighten the load at home, as well as providing assistance with local trips outside in the New London area, we can help your loved one remain living safely at home for years to come. We’ll customize our services and schedule to your needs of course, but as an example, here are some things we can assist your loved one with that directly relate to fall prevention:

  • Safe and Steady fall prevention program (integrated into all services)
  • Mobility in home and out
  • Transportation to and from doctor visits, errands, and social events
  • Running errands for them
  • Meal preparation
  • Medication reminders
  • Food and water intake reminders
  • Respectful bathing, dressing, and grooming assistance
  • Light housekeeping chores like vacuuming, dusting, linen changes, dishes, and more
  • And many more
