    required to or make a choice to make a transition
    to assisted living communities.
  • This can be because the suffer from dementia,
    Alzheimers, or other condition that required
    special care which couldnt be provided by their
    family members at home, or perhaps they dont
    have anyone to take care of them.

    previous falls that seniors experience in their
    home.

    home alone, can be really threatening, which
    triggers the person and/or their family members
    to make a move to assisted living Las Vegas
    community.

    as well as fatal injuries among elderlies, and 1
    out of 3 older adults aged 65 or older tend to
    fall each year.

  • Here are some tips to help prevent elderlies from
    falling in the home
  • Keep staircases and walkways free of clutter
    always remove the items that may turn out to be a
    tripping hazard or would make it tough for elders
    to maneuver through their home. carpets, floor
    mats, and rugs should be removed, or atleast
    secured.
  • Install the light switches at the bottom as well
    as the top of the staircases in the easy-to-reach
    spots. Motion-sensor lights are a really great
    solution to keep the staircases well-lit.
  • Install safety rails and grab bars in the
    bathrooms for assistance. The shower chairs could
    provide a really stable area to comfortably sit
    as well as to avoid falls, since bathroom floors
    can be slippery.

    his/her eyecare physician in order to maintain
    proper vision and also have prescription lens
    checked regularly.

    order to prevent burns and injuries, and also
    keep the hot-water heater lower than its highest
    settings in order to avoid those accidental
    scalding.
  • Remind your loved one to exercise caution while
    moving or lifting items or while bringing in the
    groceries.
