It’s well known that falling accidents are one of the main causes of injury in people over the age of 65. Falling can result in broken bones, fractures, head injuries, and more. And since it’s more difficult for seniors to physically recover from accidents, a simple fall could leave those of us who are over 65 stagnant for weeks on end. According to the National Council on Aging, common factors that play a part in the substantial number of senior falling accidents include poor vision, environment, balance, and medications.
There is good news, however: Many of these potential hazards are easily identified, meaning you or a loved one can take steps to reduce the risk of falling.
Two of the most important aspects of your environment are cleanliness and usability. Many seniors live in a cluttered environment, which Amada Senior Care contributes in part to a sentimental attachment to material possessions associated with fond memories. However, this increases the risk of falling, ups the chances of taking the wrong medications, and can even limit access to important parts of the home.
Clutter should be eliminated and the home routinely cleaned to ensure it does not fall back into a state of disarray. A professional cleaning company can be contracted to clean on a schedule that works for you. If you have many large pieces of furniture or collections that you’d rather not part with, it may be wise to bring in a moving company to take things out of the home and put them into storage until you’re ready to sell or donate what you no longer need. Before spending the money on this, research movers and compare prices online.
Once the clutter is cleared, the home should be evaluated for usability. If you are in a wheelchair, for example, you likely cannot navigate up and down stairs or through tight corridors. When mobility limitations make it dangerous to navigate the home, your personal belongings should be moved to the lower floor and a few home modifications put into place to help you remain independent. These might include grab bars in the bathroom, added lighting throughout the home, or a gradual incline ramp at the doorway.
Vision and health
With age often come vision changes. And like poor mobility, poor vision can make it more difficult to move around in the home. Bifocals can make it virtually impossible to judge the height and depth of stairs, and self-tinting lenses can make it harder for aging eyes to adjust when coming inside from the outdoors. Talk to your doctor about any vision problems. You might be able to change to vision aids that don’t affect your ability to walk safely throughout your home. Besides just eye health, overall health contributes to your falling risk. Many blood pressure medications, as well as conditions like anemia and hypoglycemia, can cause dizziness.
Advancing age can also lead to weaker muscles and a lesser ability to quickly regain balance when you become unsteady on your feet. Strength training and fitness specialist K. Alicia Fetters tells U.S. News & World Report that simple exercises can help improve strength and balance, reducing the chances of being injured in a falling accident. Furthermore, exercising can help you lose weight, which will put less strain on your muscles and joints. This is important if you are considered obese, when losing any amount of weight will work to improve your health.
Falling is a serious concern and an issue that contributes to billions of dollars in unnecessary health expenditures in the United States each year. Take preemptive steps to reduce your chances of becoming hurt from a preventable accident. It isn’t difficult, and things such as keeping a clean home and paying attention to the effects of prescription medications can go a long way toward keeping you or a loved one safe at home.
