Are Jacksonville Seniors Without Elderly Care Services at Risk?

If you have an elderly loved one living alone in Jacksonville and without the assistance of elderly care services, it's only natural that you would worry about their safety. Given the high degree of risks that seniors face within their own homes, your concerns are certainly justified. In fact, the statistics can be quite harrowing. Of the seniors hospitalized due to slips and falls, only about 40% will be able to return home, and 20% will die within the year. So how can you ensure that your loved one doesn't become a part of those statistics? For many families, home care services from Visiting Angels® Jacksonville are the answer.
