Preventing Falls During Houston Home Care

Steps to prevent falls while in Houson homecareHome care workers play a unique role in fall prevention in Houston senior’s homes.  Some seniors do not have a family member or friend who has the trained eye to look for things that might cause a fall or accidental slip.  Home care workers are experienced with seniors and their care needs.  While a family member may remember a time when a senior aged loved one was limber, flexible and had great mobility, home care workers are aware that as we age we run the risk of experiencing a fall and this risk grows in likelihood.  Trip hazards and things that we can change in the home are typically easy to identify for a home care worker.  Houston home care workers will spend a significant amount of time in the home and their suggestions should be considered as an expert opinion with regard to fall prevention.  A home care worker will be providing an outside perspective to that which we are used to seeing in a senior aged loved one’s Houston home.
