Home Care in Lemon Grove
If you care for an elderly loved one who wants to remain at home, no doubt you’ve worried once or twice--or constantly--about falling. Sadly, you have good reason to be concerned. Falling is actually the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries in senior adults. The good news is, most senior falls are largely preventable. By utilizing our home care services in Lemon Grove, you can rest easy knowing your loved one will be much less likely to suffer a fall.
Fall prevention needs a multi-faceted approach. At Visiting Angels® La Mesa, we recommend the following basic steps:
- Make an appointment with your loved one’s doctor. Ask them to perform a comprehensive, medical evaluation for fall risk. Be sure to ask about any specialists they recommend such as an eye doctor or podiatrist and follow through. Also, check on medications that might affect balance or alertness.
- Suggest, prod, or beg your loved one to maintain muscle strength. An inexpensive set of resistance bands can go a long way to keeping muscles ready to bear weight.
- Call us! Schedule an appointment for a free consultation for home care services in Lemon Grove. Care at home is one of the best ways to keep seniors safe from falls without having to enter a nursing home. Every consultation includes a thorough fall-risk evaluation of your loved one’s home.
At Visiting Angels La Mesa we integrate fall prevention into all our care services. Our Safe and Steady program ensures that fall safety remains paramount. Our fully trained caregivers know everything there is to know about how to keep your loved one living safely at home.
