24 Hour Homecare To Prevent Falls
24 hour homecare serves a variety of purposes. It can allow clients to live in comfort as their personal and domestic needs are taken care of. It can allow them to live independently for as long as possible and to enjoy as full a life as possible. However, live in carers can also be excellent safeguarding tools.
Falls are one of the leading causes of hospital admissions amongst the elderly. This can be a particularly worrisome aspect of allowing a relative to continue living independently, and is one reason why residential care is mooted as an option for an older person. However, before resorting to a nursing home, why not consider 24 hour care at home for your relative? It can have all the safety benefits of residential care, without the accompanying upheaval. If an elderly person receives daily care visits at perhaps three hour intervals then they may be left on the floor for hours if they suffer a fall in the interim, even longer if the fall occurs at night. One of the major benefits of a live in carer is that they will always be there to raise the alarm and to help your relative get the care they need. They’ll be trained in first aid and able to tend to any minor injuries your relative has without the need for hospital admission. This can be extremely reassuring for both the client and their family, and is one primary reason why around the clock live in care is preferable to daily care visits in many cases.
