Did you know that falls are one of the most common accidents that occur in the senior community? In addition to that, falls can lead to traumatic brain injuries or TBI, which can cause serious medical complications and also death. It is important that your loved one and you understand what TBI is and how to prevent falls that can lead to it. Working with your loved one’s at home elder care provider can ensure that everyone is on the same page and ready to prevent falls.
One thing to keep in mind is that our at home elder care team offers free fall risk assessments that are performed in your loved one’s home. This assessment will take a look at the home and provide feedback about any areas within the home that may present a fall risk or hazard.
Below, our at home elder care team will discuss some of the steps you can take to eliminate or greatly reduce fall risks in your loved one’s home.
If you would like to learn more about our at home elder care services, now is the time to call our Milwaukee Comfort Keepers location.
