Home Care Services in Richland
One of the things seniors hope to do is age at home, but their family members who love them worry about falls. This fear is not unfounded. Our risk of falling does increase greatly with age, as does the likelihood of serious injury or worse. Thankfully, most falls are actually preventable, if all the proper precautions are put in place. In fact, our professional home care services for Richland area seniors can help keep your loved one living safely at home for years to come.
To get started on a good fall prevention program, Visiting Angels® in the Tri-Cities and Walla Walla recommends taking the following steps:
- Make an appointment with your loved one’s doctor. Ask him/her to fully evaluate them for their risk. Don’t forget to ask about medications that might cause or contribute to balance issues or level of alertness.
- Convince your loved one to keep using the muscles in their legs and arms. Even if they have to start from a sitting position, there are many exercises they can do to improve strength.
- Call us for a free, in-home consultation for home care services that includes a thorough fall-risk assessment of your loved one’s home environment.
At Visiting Angels in the Tri-Cities and Walla Walla, we take fall prevention seriously. Our Safe and Steady program is comprehensive and integrated into all our Richland-area home care services. Beside the many recommendations we can make for keeping your loved one’s home safer, our caretakers will assist with activities and tasks that pose the greatest risks.
Our Companion Care services offer help with everyday things like meal preparation, light housework, laundry, linen changes, and much more. With our Personal Care option, our caretakers can help with things like gentle bathing, dressing and grooming assistance, and walking assistance. By taking over tasks that require excessive reaching, bending, stair climbing, or standing, our home care services help your loved one age in place safely, in the comfort of their Richland area home.
Of course, that’s not all. We also transport and accompany our clients to appointments, on errands, and to social events. Your loved one will not only enjoy upbeat and joyful companionship with their caretaker, but your family can rest peacefully knowing they are right by their side as they venture out into the world.
