One in four seniors experience a fall annually, an event that can have a major impact on not only their physical health, but also their emotional well-being and independence. Personalized home care services can help seniors avoid falls while living at home. If you have a loved one living in Brick Township who is dealing with limited mobility or changes in balance or vision, our caregivers at Visiting Angels® Ocean County can be of assistance.

Helping Families in Brick Township Understand the Causes of Falls

In order to determine the best fall prevention strategy for your loved one, it’s important to understand the most common causes of falls. The more risk factors an individual faces, the more likely they are to fall or slip and become injured.

Changes in a senior’s senses and physical abilities can significantly contribute to their fall risk. Here are some examples of those factors:

  • Balance concerns
  • Medical conditions
  • Issues with vision
  • Lack of strength
  • Decreased coordination
  • Slower gait

Of course, falls don’t only occur because of physical conditions or the aging process. They can also result from environmental factors, especially hidden hazards within the home. These include:

  • Clutter around the house
  • Poor lighting
  • Lack of railings on stairs
  • Unsafe cane or walker usage
  • Floppy or slippery shoes
  • Loose clothing

About Our Home Care Services in Brick Township 

Our customizable home care services can help seniors reduce their fall risk in a number of ways. For example, we can assist seniors with making lifestyle changes to increase their mobility and strength. Our caregivers are able to go on walks with seniors and support them with incorporating more physical activity into their day-to-day lives in a safe and enjoyable manner.

We can also assess a care recipient’s home to identify different hazards that could lead to a fall. As a family caregiver, you may not be aware of how you could make simple changes to reduce your loved one’s fall risk at home. You can rely on us to point out areas where reflective tape or night lights could be beneficial. We can also suggest modifications for the bathroom and other areas of your loved one’s home to make daily routines safer and easier.
