Protecting Your Loved One in Lufkin with Elderly Care Services

provider of elderly care services in Lufkin with elderly patient

For Lufkin area seniors, there is nothing more dangerous than a fall. The resulting injuries can steal the joy from what should be their golden years by landing them in a wheelchair, a hospital, or an assisted living facility. Slips and falls are the leading cause of hip fractures for seniors which themselves are a death sentence for 20-30% of those who suffer one. So what can you do to ensure that your loved one doesn't fall victim to a preventable accident? Families across our community turn to Visiting Angels® Lufkin to provide elderly care services which safeguard their loved one at home by spotting dangerous situations and helping them navigate safely around them.

The Dangers of Life Without Elderly Care Services in Lufkin

For seniors living on their own in Lufkin and without the aid of elderly care services, each day can bring new challenges. Without assistance, those challenges can quickly become struggles and may lead to in-home accidents with significant consequences physically, emotionally, and financially.

Some of the consequences of an in-home accident can include:

  • Hospitalization
  • Hip fractures
  • Head trauma
  • Shattered joints
  • Broken bones
  • Permanent disability
  • Chronic pain
  • Isolation
  • Depression
  • Loss of independence
  • Death

Prevention is the key to ensuring that these accidents don't occur in the first place. For seniors in Lufkin, Nacogdoches, Livingston, Center, Rusk, and Huntington that may mean having monitoring or mobility assistance as a part of their elderly care services to ensure that they have the support they need to avoid encountering potentially dangerous situations. 

Preserving the Independence of Lufkin Area Seniors with Elderly Care Services

At Visiting Angels Lufkin, we offer a slip and fall prevention program with elderly care services developed especially to help seniors avoid in-home accidents. To do that, we assess the potential risk factors at play, including their physical condition and their home environment and design a plan for care services that address each one. For some, that may mean one-on-one assistance when getting in and out of beds and bathtubs. For others, it might mean encouraging a safe level of physical activity, like taking walks, to help them build strength and improve their balance. Whatever your loved one needs to stay safer at home, our companion caregivers can be there to provide it with our signature compassionate touch.
