Common Fall Risks for South Phoenix-Area Seniors
Did you know that according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, falls are the top cause of injury and death for seniors? One-third of all seniors will have a serious fall each year, making them more prone to damage from falls than younger people. In addition, seniors suffer significantly more serious injuries when they fall. Many of these injuries have the potential to be fatal or result in lifelong disability. This can impede their ability to remain independent — making fall prevention a vital part of aging in place.
Elderly adults in the South Phoenix area are at a greater risk of falling and injuring themselves, which can be caused by:
- Decreased strength
- Poor coordination
- Limited mobility
- Reduced eyesight
- Hearing loss
- Stiff or painful joints
- Health complications
- Cognitive disorders
- Side effects of multiple medications
The good news is you can reduce your loved one’s risk of falling. Professional home care provided by senior caregivers from Visiting Angels South Phoenix may help seniors avoid many fall-related risks.
