One in every three adults over the age of 65 falls each year, and the number is even higher for seniors over 75. Statistics show that once a senior falls once, they’re more likely to fall a second time. Aging brings many risk factors that may contribute to falls, including arthritis, vision loss, memory loss, a decrease in physical activity, and side effects of specific medications such as fatigue, dizziness and loss of balance.
Elderly fall prevention is crucial to reduce the injuries associated with falls, such as head injuries, fractured bones, hip fractures and other significant functional impairments. Fall prevention services for seniors in Miami involve:
- Safety and supervision: Caregivers assist clients with walking, getting out of chairs, walking to the bathroom and more.
- Range-of-motion exercises: In-home service programs encourage senior loved ones to perform tasks to improve overall strength and endurance.
- Medication reminders: Elderly adults are reminded to take their medications on time and in the correct amounts.
Advantages of In-Home Fall Prevention Care for Seniors
Every 15 seconds, an elderly adult goes to the emergency room for a fall-related incident in the United States. According to the National Safety Council, falls are the leading cause of injury deaths to individuals 65 and older. Due to the risks associated with elderly falls — unintentional injuries, injury deaths and hospital admissions — fall prevention care for seniors is essential. Even falling one time can instill fear in your elderly loved one, causing them to lose confidence in their strength or independence.
In-home elderly fall prevention services are essential because the majority of senior falls occur at home. In many cases, senior loved ones prefer to remain in the comfort of their own homes as they age. To help elderly adults feel safe and comforted, in-home caregivers ensure that living spaces are safe. Respite programs and other senior home care programs can recommend adequate protection and help keep seniors safe, confident and active.
Caregivers will also take care of tasks around the house, such as cleaning and preparing meals to prevent elderly falls. They will also regularly call, check-in and visit senior loved ones to ensure they are cared for.
