Fall Prevention and Other Quality Home Care Options Available from Visiting Angels Littleton

Falls are the main reason why seniors in Littleton, CO and surrounding areas lose their independence, which is why at Visiting Angels, our home care options include helping seniors stay safe with fall prevention services

Most seniors these days wish to remain at home, and moving to a nursing home or an assisted living facility is not a suitable option for them. Luckily, even when an older adult needs help with some daily tasks, with various home care options available from Visiting Angels Littleton, they can age at home where they feel most comfortable.

If your loved one wishes to maintain their independence, reducing their risk of falls is an important step. After all, when it comes to seniors, falls cannot just cause physical injuries, but lead to various mental and emotional issues. Even a small fall can completely change one’s quality of life. Seniors who have experienced a fall become less willing to leave their home, they begin to decline invitations to social events, miss important family gatherings and spend their days inside, all due to their fear of falling again. This type of behavior can easily lead to anxiety, depression and loneliness. This is why at Visiting Angels Littleton, we offer our fall prevention program as one of our many senior care services.

How can a fall affect one’s life?

Research shows that one in three seniors fall every year, while one in five ends up with serious injuries due to falls. More than 800,000 people are hospitalized every year because of falls and what is even worse, seniors who fall once are more likely to fall again. With our fall prevention program, your loved one could age safely at home.

How Our Home Care Options Help Seniors in Littleton and Surrounding Areas Stay Safe

Falls are often caused by risk factors that have something to do with senior’s physical condition, a medical problem, or their home environment. Older adults who suffer from arthritis, poor eyesight, take several medications during the day or are often dehydrated are at higher risk of falling. By identifying risk factors and addressing them, most accidents can be avoided. For example, installing grab bars in your loved one’s bathroom can help them shower safely.

At Visiting Angels Littleton, we are committed to ensuring that our clients remain safe, comfortable and independent throughout their golden years. This is why we do everything in our power to educate seniors in our care, their families, as well as caregivers about fall prevention.
