Senior Care Services in Kansas City Help Prevent Falls

As your parent or loved one ages, their body may become more fragile, increasing the risk of injuries due to falls. In fact, in America alone, a senior is hospitalized for injuries due to a fall every 13 seconds. Additionally, more than 30% of all seniors suffer a fall every year. At Visiting Angels® Kansas City, we are committed to providing senior care services that help keep seniors safe and prevent the risk of injuries due to falls. Below, we've listed just a few of the many ways our care services help prevent falls.

Providing Medication Reminders. One way our care services help seniors throughout the Kansas City area live safely and comfortably at home is by helping our clients keep their medication in order. We provide medication reminders to help our clients remember to take their medication at the right time, reducing the risk of unnecessary side-effects, such as dizziness and balance problems, that may lead to falls.

Senior Care Services with Monitoring. With our flexible care schedules, our compassionate caregivers can help prevent the risk of falls by monitoring your loved one on an as-needed basis. We can provide a respite for the family caregiver a few hours a week or provide around-the-clock monitoring for your loved one. With our experience providing compassionate and knowledgeable senior care services in the Kansas City area, we're often able to spot fall hazards that others may miss.

Help with Daily Tasks. Our care services help seniors in the Kansas City area with a variety of day-to-day tasks and activities such as light housekeeping and meal preparation. With this assistance, our caregivers prevent our clients from having to engage in activities that lead to a higher risk of falls, such as climbing on step stools. Additionally, our compassionate caregivers help prevent falls for seniors with mobility issues and strength concerns by providing assistance with bathing and dressing.
