Home Care Services in Lompoc
As we age, the risk of injury from a fall increases steadily. In fact, you may be surprised to learn that according to the CDC, the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injury for adults 65 and older is actually falling. At Visiting Angels® Santa Barbara County, our home care services in Lompoc can help assess and prevent the risk of your loved one falling.
There are many factors that can contribute to a fall-risk scenario. For example:
- Loose clothing or shoes
- Poor lighting
- Declining vision
- Hearing loss
- Painful or stiff joints
All these and many more can lead to serious injury. The first step in fall prevention is assessing your loved one’s overall risk. Here are some tips for getting started:
- First, visit your doctor and ask about your loved one’s fall risk. Your doctor can evaluate balance issues and medications and recommend any necessary referrals to specialists like podiatrists. Tell the doctor of any falls that have already occurred, even if they were minor.
- Encourage slow lifestyle changes that incorporate exercise and socialization. Start small and slowly increase over time. Maintaining flexibility, muscle strength and balance are important to fall prevention.
- Assess your loved one’s home for risks and make any necessary modifications. Enlist the help of a qualified home care provider like Visiting Angels Santa Barbara County to help.
