It is no surprise that as we start to age, our eyes are one of the first things to experience problems. Vision loss and eye diseases are increasingly common in the elderly community and it is important for your loved one and their senior care services provider to work on way to ensure your loved one can live alone. Independent living is important to seniors and just because they experience vision loss, or an eye disease does not mean that they cannot live alone.
Senior care services providers want you to know that falls are common in the elderly community and when paired with vision loss, it is a recipe for disaster. Falls can lead to serious injuries that leave your loved one in the hospital.
Our senior care services team has put together some home adaptions that will allow you to make sure your elderly one’s home is as safe as possible.
If you would like to learn more about our senior care services or you would like to have a free fall risk assessment performed, now is the time to call Comfort Keepers.
