Williston, VT -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/27/2019 -- While anyone can slip or fall, seniors are at a higher risk of falling. Falls are more prevalent in older individuals and can lead to severe injuries and even injury-related fatalities. There are a number of injuries that can occur as a result of a fall, such as fractures, abrasions, and bruises. Griswold Home Care, the leading agency for live-in senior care in The Greater Burlington Area, stresses the importance of understanding fall prevention and how it can help protect seniors from a hazardous and painful situation.
Many people believe that falling is an inevitable occurrence as adults grow older; however, there are actually proven ways to reduce falls. While home care professionals are available to help with live-in care services, learning about fall prevention can help seniors remain more independent in their homes. Seniors who practice daily exercise for strength and flexibility will find improvement in stability and walking. In addition to exercising, there are home safety tips seniors can follow to prevent falls, some of which include keeping items off the floor, using non-slip mats, installing handrails, and maximizing lighting in the home.
