Why Fall Prevention for Seniors is Vital 

At Your Tailor Made Senior Service  , we're committed to helping seniors remain at home as they age, keeping them in the space where they feel safest, happiest, and most comfortable.

That makes fall prevention an important part of our training and implementation .

Seniors are more likely to suffer falls than younger adults, with 1 in 3 seniors experiencing a serious fall every year. This is due to a number of risk factors that are more common among elderly adults, including:

  • Decreased strength

  • Poor coordination

  • Limited mobility

  • Reduced eyesight

  • Hearing loss

  • Stiff or painful joints

  • Health complications

  • Cognitive disorders

  • Multiple medications

Seniors are more likely to suffer a serious injury when falls occur.

In many cases, these injuries can have life-altering or life-threatening side effects.

Hip fractures are a particular danger. The recovery period for a hip fracture can take up to 12 months, may require transitional care, and comes with a significant risk of life-threatening complications. The vast majority of seniors never fully recover from a hip fracture, and many older adults lose their independence as a result.

The good news is that the vast majority of falls can be prevented.

Our Safe and Steady program can help reduce your loved one's risk of falling at home—the most common location for slips, trips, and falls.

Let's Take First Step Together

Our commitment to fall prevention extends to our home care services.

Our caregivers can reduce your loved one's risk of falls in a number of ways, depending on the type of home care we provide to your loved one.

With companion care, we can help your loved one maintain a safe and tidy home, and we can lend a helping hand with day-to-day tasks that may increase the risk of falls. If your loved one's physical health puts them at high risk for falls, our personal care services can help with activities such as dressing, bathing, and mobility.
