Comfort Keepers’ fall risk reduction support is one of the most important services that we provide. Seniors falls are the single greatest cause of accident-related injury and death in adult over 65 years old. Worse, millions of American seniors live in constant fear of falling which leads to isolation, depression, and a significant decline in quality of life. Thankfully, Comfort Keepers offers fall risk reduction as part of our in home senior care, which can help you live safely and securely in the comfort of your own home.
Fall risk reduction starts with an in-home fall-risk assessment. Three out of four falls occur in the home and many of them could have been prevented. Comfort Keepers can assess your home, identify potential hazards, and recommend adjustments. Common suggestions include the addition of grab bars near toilets and in the shower, railings in hallways and stairways, motion sensor lights, and keeping walkways clear of hazards such as cords and loose rugs.
Many falls are the result of weak muscles, a lack of flexibility, or poor balance. Improving these areas can help reduce fall risks. Comfort Keepers’ in home senior care can help you follow a regular work out program that includes cardiovascular, resistance, balance, and flexibility training.
Comfort Keepers also offers technological solutions to keep you safe in the event of an emergency. If you do fall, you will not be alone. A one-push button on a bracelet or necklace can alert service agents, provide GPS coordinates, and quickly get first-responders on the way. With Comfort Keepers, agents already have access to your medical history and information so they can save precious time by preparing first-responders while are on the way to the scene.
