Our At Home Care for the Elderly Includes Fall Prevention in Hot Springs, AR and the Surrounding Area

Visiting Angels Provides Comprehensive Fall Prevention in At Home Care for the Elderly Services in Hot Springs, Hot Springs Village, Benton, and the Nearby Cities

About 36 million seniors fall every year. While not every fall is serious, one in four seniors fall each year and one in five are seriously injured. Seniors who fall are more likely to lose their independence and feel alone and depressed. Unfortunately, falling can hurt seniors physically, emotionally, and socially, as many seniors who fall often decline attending social events for fear of falling again. At Visiting Angels in Hot Springs, we offer comprehensive at home care for the elderly to help keep seniors safe inside and outside the home.

Fall Statistics

Every year, seniors suffer from broken knees, hip fractures, and more due to falls. Sometimes, these injuries can take months to heal if they heal at all. Here are some grim statistics when it comes to seniors and falling:

  • Seniors who fall are more likely to fall in the future
  • Serious injuries such as hip fractures can take over a year to heal in long-term care facilities
  • Many seniors who sustain serious injuries due to falls must move into nursing homes or assisted living facilities
  • Over 800,000 seniors are hospitalized because of fall-related injuries

Fall Risks

At Visiting Angels in Hot Springs, we are dedicated to keeping seniors safe in their own homes with at home care for the elderly. Our caregivers can help you and your loved one identify risk factors that can cause a harmful fall. Risk factors include your loved one’s physical state, their mental state, or even their environment. The most common risk factors include:

  • Poorly lit staircases
  • Lack of handrails over stairs
  • Showers or baths without grab bars or non-stick mats
  • Dehydration
  • Taking more than one medication
  • Poor eyesight
  • Arthritis

When you can identify risk factors, it is easier to address them and prevent falls. Seniors who do not use a cane or a walker are at a higher risk of falling, and it is our goal to make sure they are safe.

Our Fall Prevention Program

Visiting Angels of Hot Springs offers a wide range of senior care services to ensure your aging loved one remains safe in their own home. Our at home care for the elderly agency can:

  • Recommend where to place more lighting, grab bars, and furniture to reduce fall risks
  • Assist with walking, mobility, and transferring
  • Transportation assistance
  • Hydration reminders
  • Medication reminders
  • Assistance with bathing, dressing, grooming, and toileting
