Fall risk reduction also includes mobility assistance. Many falls are the result of balance issues, and our caregivers will work with doctors and therapists to address any balance issues or physical limitations your loved one might have. We will also assist with exercises and therapy movements designed to increase strength, flexibility, and balance.
In addition to keeping seniors physically safe, our caregivers will spend time getting to know seniors to ensure they are happy as well.
