In Home Supportive Services & Senior Safety In Fargo, ND
Senior safety and preparedness education is an important part of our in home supportive services programs at Comfort Keepers
Here at Comfort Keepers of Fargo, ND we know all about the many benefits of having one of our expert caregivers coming to your loved one's home as part of our comprehensive in home supportive services. But at the same time, there are a number of risks associated with continuing to live at home as a senior citizen, even when you spend time with your loved one and have one of our caregivers assisting in their care. With this in mind, we have the safety of your loved ones built into our care programs, even when they must be alone.
The risk of a heart attack, stroke, a fall with injuries, or any one of numerous other emergencies goes up with every year past the age of 65. More importantly, the risk of an emergency like this is even higher during those times when an elderly person is at home alone. Speaking of numbers, statistics show that in a large percentage of these incidents, the person affected is left unable to reach a telephone to call for help. A person could be left lying alone for hours or even days before someone notices them and calls for help.
Continuing on with this thought process, our caregivers can also help ensure your loved one's home is safe. There are many physical risks associated with seniors who continue living at home. These might include tripping hazards like stacks of magazines, piles of stuff, and more. But there also other risks such as cracked foundations and blocked gutters that can lead to flooded basements, smoke and CO detectors with dead batteries, the list goes on. Our in home supportive services providers can teach you what to look for and how to cope with the problem. Each one of the above plays a direct role in your loved one's overall safety and health.
Be Prepared More Than Just a Motto
Our caregivers may be there to help take care of your loved ones, but that is only one part of the overall picture. Through assistance and education, they are there to help make sure your loved ones remain healthy and safe for as long as they continue to live independently in their homes.
