According to AARP (American Association of Retired Persons), nearly 90% of seniors want to stay in their own homes as they age. For some that is a possibility, but another option is moving in with a family member or to an assisted living home. Whatever decision you make, it is important that you take precautions to help keep your loved one safe.

Falls are the number one cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries among older adults. Many of these seniors are already frail or have pre-existing disabilities and medical complications, so even seemingly minor falls can result in severe injuries or death. You can help them prevent a dangerous fall by just doing a few simple things.

  • Help them build leg strength and balance. One way to do this is to exercise regularly. Daily walks are a good way to keep them active. Make sure they have had their eyesight checked or prescription updated. Weak eyesight or blurry vision can cause stumbles.
  • Check medications. Often times, side affects from prescription or over the counter drugs can cause dizziness. Look around and make sure any clutter in your or their home is picked up. Remove any rugs that might slip or cause trips.
  • Get them comfortable, supportive shoes. A good pair of tennis shoes can provide good friction on otherwise slippery surfaces, and ensures their feet are well supported as they go about their day. 

If your loved one does take a fall, it is important to first assess the situation. If they are unconscious or unresponsive call 911 immediately. Keep the individual as still as possible. Check for signs of bleeding or obvious injury. Depending on the type of injury, apply basic first aid. Stay by his/her side until medical help arrives. If they are conscious and alert, keep them comfortable, and relaxed. Ask if there is any discomfort, severe pain or throbbing in the head or light headedness. After calming reassurance, and you know there are no apparent injuries, ask them if they feel well enough to get off the floor. At this time, it is important to make sure that you don’t injure yourself or them by trying to lift them by yourself. You could severely injure your back or drop your loved and cause further injuries. The best way to transport them safely is to use a mobile lifting device. The Raizer Lift Chair is easily placed around the fallen person, and with a push of a button will safely and smoothly raise the person back up to a standing position. It keeps them calm and confident and you can be sure that they are safe. For more information on how the Raizer Lift Chair can help you, call 281-657-5006 or check out our website, rescuelift.com.
