Request a Free Fall Prevention Workshop for Your Group!
Happiness at Home Health Care is proud to be the Fraser Valley area’s “resident experts” in fall prevention. Let us share some ideas with your family, friends, company, organization, or group about how to prevent one of the most catastrophic events in the life of a senior citizen.
We are very concerned about the effects that falls have on seniors. Once a senior has fallen, they lose their confidence and more falls may occur, resulting in hip fractures, broken wrists, sprained arms, or other mobility impediments. Further resulting in imposed isolation and eventually, seniors require admission to residence care or assisted living facilities.
As you can see, the consequences of falling are very serious to seniors and their families. We speak to groups, both large and small, about how to prevent falls. We have developed a dynamic presentation (as little as 20 minutes in length) that we would love to share with your group. In this presentation, we share such things as:
- The frequency and effects of falls among seniors
- The most common causes of falls
- Things you can do to reduce the risk of falling
- What to do when someone falls
- How to tell if you or someone you love is at risk of a fall
With each presentation, brochures and other materials are available for each person. In addition, each senior will have the opportunity to participate in a free risk assessment. If you would like us to present this valuable program at your group’s next meeting, simply contact us.
