Falls are the second leading cause of accidental death in America. Seventy-five percent of these falls occur in the older adult population. One third of the older adults who fall, sustain a hip fractureand are hospitalized, die within a year.
Falls not only affect the quality of life of the individual but also influence the caregiver and family. Health care costs for falls and rehabilitation average 70 billion dollars a year! Even if the fall does not result in hospitalization, fear of falling becomes a major factor.
Fear leads to inactivity and loss of confidence.
This, in turn produces a cycle of fear, loss of self-confidence, and inactivity, thereby decreasing the quality of life and increasing the risk of falls.
Dr. Roberta A. Newton, PhD Temple University College of Health Professions in Philadelphia, PA, USA has spearheaded the efforts for years studying and researching why falls occur and how they can be prevented. From the most overlooked areas of the home to making it easier to navigate through one’s home, Dr. Newton has been right on target indicating points of interest and vulnerability in every day life. Visiting Angels has partnered with Dr. Roberta A. Newton PhD to fully utilize all of the in depth research she and her team have compiled.

There are many things you and your family can do to reduce fall risks and prevent falls. Sometimes, however, help from professional caregivers can further reduce fall risks and improve safe, independent living at home.

Sometimes it’s just a little bit of help with the activities of everyday life. Interim brings you or a loved one a menu of helpful solutions to the little challenges that jeopardize safety and independence. Professional caregivers help with things such as meal preparation, light housekeeping, companionship, shopping, bathing and grooming and other important services. Helping with getting around or bathing, for example, can avoid high fall risk situations.
Sometimes fall risks come from situations that require skilled nursing or therapy services. For example, physical strength, balance and walking problems can be addressed with physical therapy at home. Nurses might help with medication management. The physician might order skilled nursing services when there has been a change in a medical condition or medications. A nurse might be needed to teach self-management skills. Many of these services may be paid for by insurance plans or Medicare
