Fall Prevention

Comfort Keepers In-Home Care in Nashville, Tennessee.

Preventing Falls through Eldercare in the Nashville, TN Area

Injury prevention and health promotion are part of our eldercare in Nashville, TN and the surrounding area

The strength of our muscles and bones, the clarity of our eyesight and hearing, the stability of our balance, and the speed with which we can react all decline with age. When taken together, these factors enhance the likelihood that an elderly person will have an injury from a trip and fall. According to the National Council on Aging, falls are the most common cause of injury and death among the elderly population in the United States. That's why Comfort Keepers of Nashville, TN puts so much stock in minimizing hazards like tripping and falling around the house. Discover how our eldercare can help by calling us at (615) 219-5126.

What we do

Having a Comfort Keeper provide eldercare for your loved one ensures that they will always have a companion who is aware of potential dangers and risks in the environment. Typical sources of tripping and falling are:

  • Damaged or uneven flooring, or rugs that are too loose.
  • Traction issues in the kitchen and bathroom.
  • Difficulty utilizing basic bathroom facilities, such as a toilet or shower, without assistance.
  • Stairs, hallways, and doors with poor lighting or slick flooring can be dangerous.
  • Congested layouts, hallways, and foyers impede visitors' ability to move freely within the home.

Our caregivers for the elderly appreciate the value of privacy and freedom for seniors who choose to age in place in their own Nashville homes, and they will respect your loved one's wishes in these regards. Our suggestions are meant to enhance the freedom of your loved one, not take it away. Make sure your loved one is safe by installing grab bars in the restroom, sturdy railings on the stairs, and mobility aids.

Personalized support to keep elderly family members safe

After you hire Comfort Keepers, we'll visit your loved one at home to see how they're doing and get a feel for their surroundings. We will be monitoring your loved one's home security from the first day of caregiving services. In addition to assisting your loved one with the use of a mobility device, our caregivers may also recommend floor layouts that improve access to different areas of the home, as well as suggest the replacement of flimsy carpets with firmer flooring.

Every senior and their loved ones should have a plan ready in the event of a fall. If your loved one is at danger of falling, our eldercare managers may work with you and your family to create a plan of action to have on hand just in case, including removing potential risks and altering behaviors.
