How Senior Care Services Can Prevent Falls in Longview

As your parent or loved one ages, their body may become more fragile, making them more susceptible to injuries due to falls. In the United States alone, a senior is hospitalized due to injuries from a fall every 13 seconds. In fact, falls represent one of the biggest dangers to American seniors. At Visiting Angels® Longview, we recognize this danger and are committed to providing senior care services that help prevent falls from happening. Below, are just a few of the ways our care services help seniors reduce the risk of falling. 

Medication Reminders. If your loved one has been prescribed medication that has side-effects such as dizziness or balance issues, their chance of falling may be increased. While we encourage regular review of medications with a doctor, our care services can help seniors in the Longview area avoid falls related to dizziness by providing reminders to take medications on schedule. If your loved one is getting used to a new medication that can cause dizziness, we can keep a close eye on them as they become accustomed to the new medicine. 

Help with Day-to-Day Tasks and Activities. At Visiting Angels Longview, our senior care services can help your loved one with a variety of daily tasks and activities to help reduce their risk of falling. We can help with meal preparation, light housekeeping, and transferring so your loved one can avoid higher risk activities. If your loved one suffers from mobility issues or strength concerns, bathing, dressing, and walking assistance can also help prevent falls.

Careful Monitoring. With our flexible senior care services, we're able to help prevent falls by carefully monitoring our clients in their Longview-area homes. Caregivers are available 24/7 so your loved one will never need to be without someone to monitor them and make sure they remain safe.
