Helping you prevent falls
Around 1 in 3 adults over 65 who live at home will have at least one fall a year, and about half of these will have more frequent falls so it is no surprise that this is one of the most common concern to family carers.
Lying on the floor for an extended period of time can lead to serious health complications. The first line of defense in falls safety is to prevent falls, but the reality is not all falls can be prevented. The second line of defense is to prevent a lengthy time on the floor following a fall which could have a negative impact on the quality of life for an elderly person together with a lengthy stay in hospital with health complications.
Independent Living Supplies understand the importance of having a plan to get up safely after a fall and to have a way to alert quickly for assistance. There are some simple monitoring solutions available that can help to monitor falls around the home and whilst in professional care.
