Effective Tips for Fall Prevention

Falling can be a serious incident for many seniors that can lead to severe injury. Do you worry about your loved one losing their balance while using the bathroom? Are you scared they might fall down when going up a flight of stairs? These can be scary situations and no family member could ever feel at peace when they leave their loved one alone at home while they struggle with mobility issues by themselves.

Fortunately, there are many different fall prevention methods you can use to help yourself or your senior loved one live a safer life at home. Here are a few effective tips that you can use for fall prevention:

  • Stretching:

    One of the best things you can do for fall prevention is daily stretching. This has many health benefits including improved flexibility. It can also help improve your balance. There are many different kinds of stretching techniques you can try such as yoga. Stretching can also help you avoid injury in the event of a fall, so it is something that is well worth your time.

  • Railings:

    Another fall prevention method you can try is to install railings throughout the property. These railings can provide you or your senior loved one something to hold onto to help maintain your balance as you move around the house. These railing can especially be helpful in the bathroom where the floors can become slippery and dangerous when wet.

  • Mobility Assistance:

    Lowenhill Home Care Services offers many different kinds of personalized services designed to make life easier and one of these services is mobility assistance.

  • Ramps:

    Another crucial component to fall prevention is the installation of ramps. Stairs can be very dangerous for many senior citizens, so either switching to a single story home or replacing your stairs with ramps can be a huge benefit.
