Tips for Preventing Falls at Home for Seniors

As per the CDC, around 36 million falls among older individuals are recorded annually—with over 3 million resulting in an injury. Because of this alarming rate, we at Agape Love Home Care, a premier provider of non-medical home care in Aberdeen, Maryland, find it imperative to help reduce the numbers.

One of the many ways we hope to accomplish so is by disseminating tips and tidbits on how seniors can do away with falls. Here’s what you can do:

  • Move up and about

    Regular exercise strengthens and tones your muscles. It also keeps your joints, tendons, and ligaments flexible. That said, it can be greatly advantageous to work with a health expert to develop an exercise program tailored to your specific needs. If you need someone to keep an eye out for you as you exercise, availing of our companionship in Maryland is a good way to start.

  • Check your vision and hearing

    Minor changes in vision and hearing have been linked to a higher likelihood of falling. As a result, it is vital to get both of these examined by professionals frequently. If you are concerned about your transportation, we are more than ready to accommodate you.

  • Opt for appropriate footwear

    Wear nonskid, rubber-soled, low-heeled shoes that adequately support your feet. Make sure you avoid wearing shoes or slippers with smooth soles or wearing socks while you are walking on floors or stairs.
