Easy Ways to Reduce the Risk of Falling

ESLOP.BlogGraphic.09.13.21

 As we age, we become more prone to losing our balance and falling. In fact, falls are the number one cause of serious injuries in seniors, with most of these falls happening in the home. Luckily, here at Evergreen Place, we want loved ones and their families to live worry-free, which is why we offer many services and amenities to reduce the risk of falling. There are also a few simple things you and your loved one can do to further reduce the likelihood of a fall.

  • Clean up clutter: Having clear paths is the most important part of reducing the risk of falling. This eliminates all unnecessary obstacles and allows seniors to move about freely. We offer spacious apartments that allow your loved one to have plenty of room to move while never being too far from anything.

  • Lighting: It is important to be able to see where you are walking at all times. Moving around in low or no light can greatly increase your loved one's risk of falling. Our apartments are designed with large windows to let in as much natural light as possible. Evergreen Place also offers maintenance services for all of the lighting fixtures in your loved one's room.

  • Wear shoes: Having shoes on allows for a better grip on the floor, which will make keeping your balance easier. If shoes are not as cozy, you can opt for a pair of non-slip socks; this will give that extra grip that some seniors may need.

Here at Evergreen Place, we don't want your loved one to be worried about falling or anything else for that matter. That's why we offer 24-hour wellness support, maintenance services, housekeeping, and laundry, as well as many other services. We want to provide your loved ones with the care they can depend on, allowing for worry-free living.
