Fall or Wandering Risk
Falling is one of the leading causes of emergency visits for older individuals. Both physically and emotionally, falling and the fear of falling can hinder activity and cause stress for your loved one. Creating a fall prevention plan is a great idea for all families with older relatives.
Visiting Angels can help by providing recovery assistance in the event of a fall. Even more importantly, having a Visiting Angels caregiver in your loved one’s home can greatly decrease the chance of a fall in the first place. We can help by:
- Encouraging regular exercise
- Monitoring mediation
- Eliminating hazards around home
- Helping your loved one in high risk areas of the home
