Provider of elderly care services in Longview with elderly patient

For seniors in Longview Gladewater, Overton, Kilgore, Tyler, Gilmer, Marshall, Henderson, and Carthage, the riskiest place of all is not somewhere unfamiliar, but right inside their very own homes. It's at home where the majority of accidents occur, primarily slips and falls which can result in serious injuries. Sometimes it's external factors like slippery or uneven flooring which can lead to an accident. Other times, it is simply a senior's own fragility, moving too quickly, or losing their balance. Elderly care services from Visiting Angels® Longview can help them to overcome these dangers by giving them the stability and support that they need at home. 

Preventing Slips and Falls with Elderly Care Services in Longview

Since more slips and falls occur within a senior's home than anywhere else, it stands to reason that it's there that they will need the most support. That's why many families in Longview choose elderly care services for their loved one. The presence of a companion caregiver within a senior's home can help them to avoid the common pitfalls that lead to accidents and injury within the home. 

Some of the ways that home care services can help keep your loved one in Longview safer include:

  • Preparing nutritious meals that are rich in nutrients that promote bone density 
  • Encouraging a safe level of physical activity to help build physical strength and improve balance
