Home Care Services in Gladstone
At Visiting Angels® Southeast Portland we take fall prevention extremely seriously. We know that falls are the leading cause of both fatal and non-fatal injury in adults 65 and over. That’s why we designed our Safe and Steady fall prevention program and incorporated its tenets into all our home care services for Gladstone-area seniors.
If you’re helping care for an elderly loved one who is attempting to age in place safely, it’s helpful to think of fall prevention as being divided into two areas--medical and environmental. Our home care is designed to address and drastically reduce your loved one’s environmental risk, but you should make a special appointment with their doctor for a thorough medical fall-risk evaluation. Their doctor will consider all risk factors such as:
- Cognitive issues
- Vision and/or hearing loss
- Muscle strength
- Bone health
- Foot problems
Make sure you follow up with any and all specialists your doctor refers your loved one to, as well as any exercises he/she suggests.
At Visiting Angels Southeast Portland, we’re ready to help you tackle the environmental aspect of your fall safety plan. On our very first visit, during your initial, free consultation for home care services in Gladstone, we’ll conduct a thorough, complimentary fall-risk assessment of your loved one’s home environment.
Our compassionate and fully-vetted caregivers are thoroughly trained in our Safe and Steady fall prevention program and will bring their knowledge of fall safety with them to every visit. Our home care services for the Gladstone area provide another set of eyes and hands to help keep your loved one safe. We can assist with a wide variety of tasks and/or activities that require moving, standing, reaching, and bending, including:
- Mobility assistance
- Companionship and transportation to and from errands, appointments, and social visits
- Local errands
- Medication reminders
- Food and hydration reminders
- Light household chores like vacuuming, dishes, dusting, bed changes, laundry, and more
- And much more
