How Seniors Can Avoid Falls at Home
One of the most important issues in elder care is preventing falls. Falls can lead to serious injuries and long-term immobility for seniors. This video shows ways seniors in retirement communities near Dallas and beyond can reduce their risk of suffering falls.
Start by ensuring that you have the proper lighting. You should have a light by the bed that you can turn on when you wake up and adequate lighting in all hallways. Make sure all pathways are clear of obstructions and that the edges of area rugs are secured to the floor. Don’t climb on chairs or ladders to reach items. Home health care aides in senior living communities can help you do things that could lead to falls so you can maintain your independent living lifestyle.
