Falls can be scary, especially when you’re home alone. The most important first step though, is to not panic, try and relax then call for help.
The Daughterly Care Joyful Living Approach™
As we age, physical problems such as arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes and heart issues may affect our mobility leaving us less confident in carrying out our day to day activities. However, getting older should not have to mean loss of independence, mobility or a major change in lifestyle. Our home nursing services support any condition that is impacting your ability to live independently and well. Our client-centred approach is designed to ensure our elderly clients remain in control of the lives for as long as possible by tailoring a service to meet their individual needs.
A comprehensive assessment will help identify areas where some extra support could really make a difference. For example, ensuring eye and dental visits are up to date, putting strategies in place to reduce the risk of falls at home (having the right equipment, clothing and footwear), making sure medication is administered exactly as prescribed and monitoring of weight, nutrition and hydration.
Most of our Caregivers are trained in an exercise program that has been proven through evidence based research done by the University of Sydney to reduce falls by 31%. This exercise program can be done during our usual service time. If you want to reduce your risk of falling, ask for a Caregiver trained in falls reduction.
We provide 24 Hour care, Live In care, Hourly care, in addition to a wide range of other services.
To discuss how we can best help you, we’d love to come and visit you in your own home.
