Fall Prevention Guide

As loved ones age, balance becomes a significant issue due to a variety of factors, including physical weakness, medications and cognitive or visual impairment. Ideally a source of comfort for aging loved ones, the home can become hazardous without a fall-preventive strategy. Right at Home suggests you proactively assess the aging senior’s house for anything that might be a health risk. In addition, please consider helping your loved ones remain safe by:

  • Finding someone to check on them regularly
  • Scheduling vision checks
  • Discussing medications with their physician
  • Checking their balance
  • Establishing light-exercise routines

After observing any safety concerns, suggest an agreeable solution.

The Right at Home community of care that has been surrounding my mother in these last few years has created such a safe and helpful reality and truly allows my mother to successfully extend her independent life in her own apartment.  That brings much happiness to my mother and helps me to sleep at night! You folks are the best! Thank you for your constant communication and support.
