Why Fall Prevention for Seniors is Important
At Visiting Angels of North Port, we're committed to helping seniors remain at home, keeping them where they feel safest, happiest, and most comfortable. That makes fall prevention an essential part of our DNA.
Seniors are more likely to suffer falls than younger adults, with 1 in 3 seniors experiencing a serious fall every year. Falls are due to several risk factors that are more common among elderly adults, including:
- Decreased strength
- Poor coordination
- Limited mobility
- Reduced eyesight
- Hearing loss
- Stiff or painful joints
- Health complications
- Cognitive disorders
- Multiple medications
Seniors are more likely to suffer a severe injury when falls occur. In many cases, these injuries can have life-altering or life-threatening side effects.
Hip fractures are a particular danger. The recovery period can take up to 12 months, needs transitional care, and comes with a significant risk of life-threatening complications. Many seniors never fully recover from a hip fracture.
