Senior Care Services in Highland Lakes Help Prevent Falls

As your parent or loved one ages, their risk of being injured from a fall is increased. Seniors' bodies are often more fragile than younger bodies, which means falls can lead to serious and sometimes life-threatening injuries. In fact, in America alone, a senior receives hospital attention due to a fall every 13 seconds. With falls being so dangerous, at Visiting Angels® Highland Lakes, we are dedicated to providing senior care services that help prevent these falls from happening. Below, we've listed a few of the ways our services can help keep your loved one safe and prevent serious injuries due to falls.

Help with Medication Reminders. According to the National Council on Aging, one of the best ways to reduce the chance of a fall is to regularly review your loved one's medication to ensure side-effects, such as dizziness or loss of balance, won't increase the risk of falls. At Visiting Angels Highland Lakes, our senior care services help seniors avoid unnecessary side effects by reminding our clients to take the right dose at the right time. 

Regular Monitoring. Our caregivers can be scheduled for visits that range from a few times a week all the way up to and including 24 hours a day. Regular visits and monitoring can help limit the risk of a fall by providing a watchful eye over your loved one. Thanks to our experience providing professional senior care services in the Highland Lakes area, we're often able to spot fall hazards that others may overlook.

Help with Daily Tasks Around the House. Another way our senior care services help prevent falls is by providing seniors in the Highland Lakes area with a helping hand around the house. We can help your loved one with a variety of day-to-day tasks such as light housekeeping and meal preparation. This assistance prevents your loved one from having to perform higher-risk activities such as climbing step stools. Furthermore, if your loved one has strength concerns or mobility issues, we can assist with personal needs including bathing and dressing, and with mobility assistance.
