How Companion Care Can Help with Fall Prevention

Knowing that an elderly loved one is alone at home can be extremely stressful for family caregivers, especially if that elder has been struggling with mobility. Their treasured family home can begin to seem like a minefield of steep staircases and slippery floors. Even getting out of bed can pose a danger to a fragile senior. At this point, many families begin to think about moving their loved one into an assisted living facility option for their safety. Companion care from Visiting Angels® Hartford provides an alternative that both you and your senior will love. Our caregivers can be there when you can’t to look after your loved one and ensure their safety at home.

The Difference a Caregiver Companion Can Make

For an advanced age individual, there are few things worse than feeling unsafe in their own home. Many have a fear of falling, which is a common occurrence in the elderly. Slips and falls are the second leading cause of death in the United States, the vast majority of which are senior citizens. Even if the fall isn’t fatal, it can result in prolonged hospitalization and cause permanent physical damage. Luckily, there’s an answer. Companion care from Visiting Angels can prevent all of that by providing monitoring and assistance to seniors in the comfort of their very own homes.
