Celebrate Fall with Fall Prevention

Celebrate Fall with Fall Prevention

Recently, we just celebrate National Fall Prevention Week. With the fall season, we decided we should celebrate with No Falls during the fall season and learning to prevent them. The majority of falls are preventable. Here are a few tips to enjoy this fall season with no falls:

  1. Find a good balance and exercise program. It can be the difference between having a fall or preventing one.

  2. Talk to your physician about any falls or the fear of falling. Have your home evaluated for home safety and developing a plan on your own.

  3. Review your medications with your physician or pharmacist as well as any over the counter medications for fall side effects.

  4. Have your hearing and vision checksed yearly to keep you safe on your feet.

  5. Make safety modifications in your own home as soon as possible.

  6. Talk to your family members and ask for needed help. If they are busy, out of town or you simply want or need assistance, in-home care is a great option. Call ElderCare 4 Families today to learn more about all the ways we can assist.

Happy Fall Season with No Falls!
