3 million seniors are treated in emergency departments for fall-related injuries a year in the US.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that 3 million seniors are treated in emergency departments every year due to falls—a number that is growing annually. As people age, factors such as decreased strength, vision issues, and other medical problems can create an increased risk of falls and the resulting injuries. In addition, the use of medications such as sedatives and some antidepressants can leave seniors feeling drowsy or unsteady, making them more susceptible to serious accidents. This is why it’s so important for seniors and their families to take proactive measures to make their homes as safe and comfortable as possible.
To help protect elderly loved ones from falling, it is important to reduce potential fall hazards with aids such as walk-in tubs, stair lifts, and grab bars. Another important step in helping prevent falls is regular physical activity to improve strength and balance. Seniors can also wear a medical alert device if they need help quickly; this way if they do experience a fall, assistance will be available within minutes. By addressing these issues and investing in resources for senior adults, serious fall-related injuries can be greatly minimized among US seniors in the years to come.
Fox Valley’s home safety renovations can help seniors to live independently.
Our experienced professionals specialize in providing accessibility solutions for seniors to help prevent dangerous slips and falls. Installing walk-in tubs and showers, raised toilets, grab bars, and stair lifts are the perfect way to make any home more accessible.
Walk-in tubs provide a safe and secure bathing area with minimal risk of falling due to their low step thresholds. Raised toilets help alleviate the need for bending down which can lead to pulling muscles or falling over. Grab bars can assist seniors by providing extra balance when transitioning into and out of walk-in tubs as well as other areas throughout the home. And stair lifts can help seniors maintain mobility across all levels of the home without the strain of going up and down stairs, or the risk of slipping and falling down them.
Other simple home modifications that can help seniors feel more secure include improved lighting, wider doorways for wheelchair access, and non-slip flooring.
By having our experienced professionals install these safety measures, you can be sure that you or your elderly loved ones will live comfortably and safely with a reduced risk of injury from preventable falls.
