As we age and our bodies change, strength, eye site, hearing, and balance diminish and our risk of falling increases. By the time we are considered in our senior years, this risk not only goes up dramatically but so does the risk of a fall that might result in a dire outcome. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, falling is the number one reason for fatal and non-fatal injuries in senior adults. If you’re worried about the risk of your West Hartford area loved one falling, home care services from a trusted provider like Visiting Angels® Newington can help.

The first three steps on the road to an effective fall prevention program consist of the following:

  1. Talk to your loved one’s doctor. Ask him/her to evaluate them medically for fall risk. This should include a review of their medications and any potential side effects that might affect balance or alertness. 
  2. Keep them moving! As much as possible, encourage your loved one to maintain some muscle strength and balance. Start slow and build a tiny bit each day.
  3. Assess the home environment and consider lifestyle changes. Contact a professional home care service provider like us to help.

At Visiting Angels Newington, we integrate our Safe and Steady fall prevention program into all our home care services, and it all begins with the first visit. We offer clients in the West Hartford area a no-cost and no-obligation initial consultation that includes a thorough fall-risk assessment and recommendations.

Beyond helping you assess your loved one’s home for potential fall risks, our home care services help your loved one make the lifestyle changes necessary to keep them safe at home and out of the hospital. We provide an almost endless list of services because everything we do is customized to your loved one’s specific needs. 

However, we place a special emphasis on taking over tasks that pose the greatest risk--tasks that require light lifting, reaching, stair climbing, navigating tight spaces and more. We can also help with personal hygiene, bathing, dressing, and grooming. Our empathetic and professional caregivers can accompany your loved one to their appointments or on errands or social visits. They provide companionship and protection from any fall risks encountered along the way.
