Offering at home care services, to which can help you avoid harmful falls, in the Inver Grove Heights, MN area
Falls are dangerous for everybody, but they can be especially bad for seniors. Falls are one of the most common causes of serious injury, and the fear of falling can impede your daily life. Seniors who fear falling often find themselves isolated, lonely, and depressed. Since most falls occur in the home, you may feel that you are unable to age in place safely and might even consider moving into an assisted living community or nursing home. Comfort Keepers understands your need for safety, but they also know that most seniors want to remain in the comfort and convenience of their own home, surrounded by the people and things that they love. Comfort Keepers’ at home care services can improve safety, independence, and quality of life by providing fall risk reduction.
How Does Fall Risk Reduction Work?
A fall risk analysis of the home can identify areas of potential hazard and risk. Comfort Keepers will suggest changes, alterations, and modifications to make the home safer and more secure. Some changes are relatively easy and inexpensive, such as keeping walkways clear of debris, clothing, rugs, and cords. Other simple fixes include motion activated lighting, grab bars, railings, and so forth. More in-depth changes range from new flooring to a change in the tub or shower. Comfort Keepers can help coordinate changes as part of our at home care services if desired.
What Can You Do To Prevent Falls?
Strength and balance are important when it comes to reducing fall risk, and these can both be improved by exercise and proper nutrition. Seniors who are afraid of falling or have mobility challenges will likely need exercise and nutritional support. Comfort Keepers provides these and a plethora of other at home care services to help reduce fall risks and improve your overall quality of life. In addition to helping with strength, flexibility, and balance, caregivers can help plan, shop for, and prepare healthy, nutritious, and fine tasting meals that promote health and wellness.
In case of an accident, Comfort Keepers trusts SafetyChoice to get emergency medical help to you right away. SafetyChoice medic alert consoles are activated with the push of a button and activate immediate, real-time communication with emergency personnel. With SafetyChoice, you are never really alone, and help is just a button push away.
In short, fall risk reduction is important for all of us, but it becomes increasingly necessary as we age. Comfort Keepers’ fall risk reduction services will help maximize your safety, independence, and quality of life while enabling you to enjoy the freedoms that come from enjoying the comforts of your own home.
