In Home Care in Bailey's Crossroads
One of the many benefits to in home care is that it can help prevent falls. Sadly, unexpected falls are one of the major causes of fatal and nonfatal injuries for aging adults. Having an experienced care provider like Visiting Angels® Springfield VA can actually help prevent senior falls. If you’re concerned about keeping your loved one in Bailey’s Crossroads safe from falls, consider our in home care services with a built-in, integrated fall prevention program.
In general, there are a few things you can and should do to prevent your loved one from falling:
- Talk to their doctor. Ask him/her to evaluate their condition and any medications that might contribute to falling. Tell them if there has already been a fall--be honest! Aging adults sometimes try to hide or minimize falls out of fear that it will lead to placement in a nursing home. Reassure them that your goal is to keep them safe, so they can stay in their home.
- Keep them moving! Even if your loved one starts with resistance exercises in a sitting position, it’s important to try and maintain some muscle strength and balance. So start small and increase very slowly.
- Contact a professional, home care service provider like Visiting Angels Springfield VA to provide a free consultation and thorough fall risk assessment of your loved one’s home.
