Learn more about how our personal care services can help prevent falls in your loved one’s home in Holland, MI
Studies show that seniors want to live the rest of their days in their homes. No one wants to go into an assisted living center or a nursing home, and we aim to help seniors that can stay home, stay home with the care that they need from our personal care services.
Our personal care services are designed to help understand their home while taking in measures necessary to keep seniors safe. With our full risk reduction services, we are able to indicate the risk of a fall, which grows increasingly dangerous as a person ages. Falls can lead to:
- Trips to the emergency room
- Broken hips
- Premature death
Statistically, seniors that break their hips from a fall will die much faster and within just a few months of their fall. There is also the risk of head injuries, concussions, broken bones, and other significant injuries from a fall no matter how simple it may seem.
Proven Fall Risk Reduction Services
If you or a loved one is at risk of falling, the sooner you get assistance, the better. With our personal care services, we’re able to first fall proof your home the right way. First, we’ll conduct a full assessment of your home and all of the unsafe or problematic areas that you may not realize exist.
We’ll work to assess all of these high-risk areas, and then we will work to eliminate these risks one by one. Oftentimes, our services include:
- Changing furniture
- Clearing out clutter
- Repositioning or securing rugs
We can also provide further assistance in the form of exercise. As you or your loved one get stronger, you'll be able to regain some of your balance and reduce your risk of falling. Doctors recommend that we help seniors perform a light exercise for at least 30 minutes per day.
