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.
