Fall Prevention, Mocksville, NC

Let’s work together to minimize fall risk and promote a safer living space.

Falls are a significant concern for seniors because they can cause serious injuries and health complications. At Yellow Butterfly Home Care, we have fall prevention strategies that reduce fall risk. Our caregivers thoroughly assess seniors’ homes to identify potential fall hazards and recommend safety improvements. We also help those with mobility issues by transferring, ambulating, and encouraging them to use assistive devices.

Fall Prevention in Mocksville, North Carolina

Our staff is trained to provide care based on each client’s needs. We learn what fall prevention measures are needed for clients, but we look for loose rugs, clutter, poor lighting, and a lack of stair handrails. We identify these hazards during a home safety assessment and mitigate risks by securing rugs, clearing walkways, and installing adequate lighting and handrails. In bathrooms, we use fall prevention items such as non-slip mats and grab bars in the shower or bathtub. Cluttered countertops, hard-to-reach items, and slippery floors all pose hazards in the kitchen. We can reorganize the kitchen to keep frequently used items within easy reach, clean up spills immediately, and place non-slip mats near the sink.

Falls are a leading cause of injury and hospitalization among older adults. Making changes to the home environment reduces fall risk, but we also consider assistive devices such as walkers, canes, and wheelchairs that can help with stability. Poor vision and hearing can contribute to falls as well. If our caregivers notice a client struggling with either of these, they will try to get help.
