Taking Stock of the Situation

It can be difficult for primary caregivers to recognize all potential hazards that could cause a fall. When stumbling on a threshold or an uneven surface, for example, a person can easily fall. Even loose rugs and unattached telephone or computer cables can be dangerous. Our expert professionals at Comfort Keepers of Salisbury are trained to do extensive home assessments, check house features, and recommend specific home modifications and other preventative measures that can significantly reduce fall hazards in your loved one's home.

Injuries and Risks of Falling

We need to put ourselves in the shoes of an aged person when it comes to adequately recognizing fall dangers. Due to a variety of age-related issues, such as decreased mobility, debilitating and frequently chronic medical conditions, adverse effects from prescription medicine, poor vision, and more, seniors are more prone to fall and experience a major injury.

When accidents do occur, older folks require far more time to recuperate than younger adults. Not to mention lengthy and expensive hospital stays for injuries and fractures, which can deplete a family's financial resources. One of the key reasons why fall risk assessments performed by at home senior care specialists are so important in reducing falls and fall-related injuries is because of this.

Increasing Senior Bathroom Safety

The bathroom, along with the kitchen, is one of the most dangerous areas in the house for senior citizens. It can be damp and slick, and some of its features can put you at risk of falling. Consider the following to improve safety in your loved one's bathroom:

  • Installing non-slip mats in the bathtub and just beneath it
  • Obtaining a shower safety seat for your parent's use when bathing
  • Installing grab bars in the shower and next to the toilet seat is a good idea.
  • Reminding your loved one to keep hairdryers and curling irons away from the sink and faucets is a good idea.
