Our In Home Care Providers Help Prevent Falls in Greater Schererville, IN
Visiting Angels' In Home Care Providers Strive to Eliminate Falls Among Seniors in Schererville, Crown Point, Valparaiso, and Surrounding Areas
Stability and mobility tend to decrease as seniors age. According to the United States Center for Disease Control, one in four people over 65 falls each year. Every 11 seconds, an older person is treated in the ER for a fall. Bones become more porous as they grow older, leading to a greater risk of seniors breaking or injuring themselves. To sum it up, older people are at a much higher risk of falling and being injured.
Keeping an eye on seniors and securing their homes to ensure their safety are a couple of ways to prevent elderly adults from falling. However, it is not always possible for a family member to watch over an elderly loved one at all times. When you are unavailable, this is where Visiting Angels step in. We strive to assist seniors in getting around and making their living spaces safe so that they can remain at home comfortably and safely while still navigating around.
The adverse effects of falling
Physical injuries can negatively impact emotional well-being. Frequently, people who sustain injuries become terrified of getting hurt. It often prevents them from going out and socializing. This self-isolation can result in loneliness, anxiety, and depression. Therefore, Your family member must address problems with falling immediately to help make sure that the senior is well both mentally and physically.
There are a variety of factors that can cause falls. Some of these are physical conditions, medical issues, and the environment. Dehydration, arthritis, and poor eyesight are all everyday things that put a person at a higher risk of falling.
At Visiting Angels, our one-on-one care includes education and in-home care for seniors and their families. We will work to educate you and your loved one about securing your living space so that it is safe to be navigated. We will also teach you about the common causes and effects of falling and how to prevent them. We hope to minimize the potential for a fall by educating you and helping you secure your living space.
