One of the most common reasons that elderly patients visit the hospital is due to a fall. The riskiest part of a fall is that if your loved one hits his or her head, it could mean a traumatic brain injury occurs. Unfortunately, TBI is very serious and can lead to extensive health problems or even death, which is not something you want to think about. In home care for seniors is provided to those elderly individuals who live at home and need some help to complete daily tasks. These tasks can include exercises to increase mobility or fall risk assessments in the home.
Below, our in home care for seniors team will discuss some tips that can help you prevent falls in your loved one’s home, especially when no one is around.
It is important that you never leave your loved one alone if he or she is a fall risk. In home care for seniors is provided by Comfort Keepers and we will do all that we can to assist your loved one and prevent falls within the home.
