When seniors continue to live at home as they age, it is of crucial importance that their living environment is as safe as it can be. To this end, at Comfort Keepers we offer fall risk reduction services that minimize the risk of falls and fall-related injuries indoors. Our caregivers work hard to improve home safety and enable older adults to lead active and independent lives in hazard-free environments.
If your parent or relative wishes to age in place, with our help, you can easily help them improve balance and eliminate potential falls risks from their surroundings. We are proud to offer our fall risk reduction services to older adults throughout Edmonton, Sherwood Park, Fort Saskatchewan, St. Albert, Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, Devon, Nisku, Leduc, and the surrounding communities of Alberta.
This unique care program is not only designed to reduce home hazards and eliminate fall risks in your loved one’s surroundings but also to help them boost their mobility and strength, as well as overall health. At the same time, the fall risk reduction program provides family caregivers with peace of mind, as they know their Mom or Dad is well and safe when they are not with them.
With Comfort Keepers of Edmonton, AB, your loved one’s fall risk reduction program will begin with a thorough safety risk assessment, where we will closely inspect their home for any hazards. Once the assessment is over, we will propose certain home modifications that can make your loved one’s home much safer for them, like installing grab bars and handrails, getting night lights, securing carpets, and more. If you so wish, we will also coordinate home improvements.
In addition to assessing the home and dealing with home improvements, our caregivers focus on various activities that reduce the risk of falls, including exercising for boosted mobility, flexibility, balance, and coordination. As they become more and more fit due to exercising, most seniors also feel more confident about moving around.
If you wish to take your loved one’s care to the next level, their care plan can include a number of other services, from light housekeeping and meal prep to mobility assistance and transportation.
