Senior safety tips - A1 Home Care Agency
We're open, but Covid-19 safety protocol applies. Learn more

When seniors have an injury, the consequences might be more serious because of their weakened body.  For a younger person, a fall can be brushed off.  However, for a senior, a simple trip and fall can lead to bone fractures, head trauma, and other injuries.  As a result, seniors are encouraged to be proactive about fall prevention by making different changes in life to lower their chances of falls.

There are many ways to help gain an edge in the fight against falls.  First is to fall-proof the home by eliminating any clutters, slipper surface, loose cords, etc.  Furthermore, find a way to arrange furniture so that there are more room to operate and walk around freely.

Other than improving the surroundings, it is also good idea for seniors to improve the strength and balance as well.  Exercise in general can improve balance for seniors, but some are too strenuous for them to participate.  A great exercise for seniors is Tai Chi because it emphasize on weight shifting and posture alignment to reduce your risk of falling.
