Everyone knows the risk of injury from a fall and the risk of falling itself, greatly increases with age. We are all familiar with the story of the aging aunt, uncle, or parent, who has broken a hip and went on a steady decline thereafter. But did you know that according to the CDC, most senior falls are “largely preventable?” At Visiting Angels® Springfield VA our in home care services for Annandale area seniors can be an important part of a successful fall prevention plan.

First Steps

To get started with your own fall prevention steps, start with the following:

  1. Make an appointment with your loved one’s physician. Ask them for their professional opinion. Ask about any medications that might affect balance or alertness. What about their eyesight or gait? Are there any foot problems or any specialists your loved one should see for further evaluation? Tell them about any falls that have already occurred (even if your loved one doesn’t want to mention it).
  2. Maintain or improve your loved one’s balance and strength. Start small and slow, even from a sitting position, or using resistance bands. Walk for five minutes or ten and then rest. Increase slowly, over time.
  3. Reach out to a trusted local Annandale-area in home care service provider like Visiting Angels Springfield VA.
