Companion Home Care and Fall Risk Reduction in Greater Hartford, CT
Comfort Keepers caregivers can help seniors stay active and prevent accidents around the house with companion home care services
As many as 44 million Americans across the country suffer from osteoporosis. This degenerative disease causes brittle, easily breakable bones. For these Americans and millions of other American seniors, safety is a top priority. A major aspect of safety for seniors is fall reduction. If you are worried about your loved one and want to feel more at ease about their living situation, it may be a good idea to look into companion home care.
Once your loved one decides they could benefit from companion home care, a caregiver will come to their home and survey it to identify problematic and unsafe areas. Next, they will fall-proof your loved one's residence. This includes clearing out all major pathways and cleaning up clutter. It is also important that any rugs, cables and slippery things are cleared out because they can be rather risky, causing your loved one to trip and fall.
A great way to work on reducing one's risk of falling is to exercise on a regular basis. Many seniors who are already feeling unstable on their feet, and suffer from conditions like osteoporosis, Parkinson’s disease, or arthritis, may feel weary when it comes to exercise. A caregiver can help your loved one feel more comfortable about engaging in exercise, working with them to find safe ways to stay active. In addition, it may be easier for your loved one to work out if they have someone to keep them company.
