A recent slip, trip or fall
Home care services can help an older person who has had a fall, feel more comfortable, safe and confident to continue living independently at home.
Slips, trips and falls are the leading cause of injury-related hospitalisations for older adults. And even if you haven't had a recent fall, the fear of falling can be every bit as worrying and debilitating as a fall itself.
The good news, however, is that falls are preventable. There are many ways we can help to prevent slips, trips or falls and ease your anxiety if you feel you could be at risk.
