Home Care Services in Chino Valley
If you’re helping care for an aging loved one, you’ve no doubt given some amount of thought to the frightening possibility of an unexpected fall. Sadly, this worry is not unfounded. Falling is the number one reason seniors wind up in the hospital and afterward, a nursing home. We’re all familiar with stories of an aging relative or friend who took a spill, broke a hip, and then went rapidly downhill. The good news is that most senior falls are largely preventable. Our home care services in the Chino Valley area are one of the most effective fall prevention measures you can take.
Every individual senior has varying degrees of risk for falling. Contributing factors can largely be divided into two categories--medical and environmental. Medical risk factors include:
- Poor hearing and/or vision
- Cognitive issues
- Balance & coordination
- Muscle strength
- Foot problems
- Alcohol consumption (especially mixed with medications)
- And more
We recommend making an appointment with your loved one’s doctor for a full medical evaluation. They can identify any potential medical risk factors and make suggestions and referrals accordingly. Of course, make sure you follow up with any specialists.
