ASK PETER: All You Would Like to Know About Senior Care, Dementia, and Alzheimer's Care

Check and Tune-up Walkers and Wheel-Chairs

By Peter DiMaria

Start the New Year keeping your loved ones safe!

When it comes to the safety of our elderly loved ones, minor details can make all the difference in the world. That’s why Home Helpers teamed up with Louis and Clark Medical Supply to offer free tune-ups in their mobility equipment. This way, they will be able to stay independent and living in their own homes for a longer time.

The technician Fred Rood from Louis and Clark works in a walker, in our tune-up clinic at the Enfield Senior Center, in October 2017.

Fall Prevention and Senior Safety

According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control), falls are the leading cause of injury and death in older Americans. One out of five falls causes a serious injury such as broken bones or a head injury. Over 800 thousand people end up in a hospital every year, because of an injury caused by a fall. Of these, at least 300 thousand are older people who suffer a hip fracture. Hip fractures are extremely dangerous for seniors. Around 50% of those 85 years or older do not recover from a hip fracture.

So, take your time to go by one of these Senior Centers in our area and have your loved one’s wheel-chairs and walkers checked and tuned-up for complete safety.
