Have you ever worried that your loved one may fall while home alone? If so, you may want to consider elderly home care for them. The team at Comfort Keepers is committed to making sure that your family member is well taken care of and that all fall risks in the home are assessed and removed to prevent any falls from happening.
If an adult over the age of 65 or older falls, they can become seriously injured and they may not be able to live independently anymore. Not only is this devastating for you, it can cause your loved one a lot of frustration and embarrassment. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state that one-fourth of Americans who are age 65 and older fall every year. In addition, falls result in more than 2.8 million of the injuries that are treated within the ER annually.
Elderly home care in Waite Park is designed to meet the needs of your family member and provide them with a safe place to live. Our home caregivers will perform a FREE fall risk assessment within your loved one’s home and highlight all areas of the home that may pose a risk from the tub entrance to the loose throw rug on the floor. Once the elderly home care assessment is performed, we will work with you to ensure hazards are removed and assistive devices, if any, are installed.
We know how hard it can be to be away from your loved one and have to worry about whether or not they fell that day. Our elderly home care services will eliminate that worry and provide you with the peace of mind you need. Call Comfort Keepers today to discuss your options.
