Senior Care in Vernon CT, East Hartford CT and Manchester CT: Free Wheelchairs and Walkers Tune-Up Next Week!

By Peter DiMaria

Senior Care in Vernon CT, East Hartford CT, and Manchester CT.

We are happy to announce that next Monday, January 28, we will be starting to tune up mobility pieces of equipment in three new locations in Vernon CT, East Hartford CT, and Manchester CT. Every quarter Home Helpers Home Care teams up with Louis and Clark Medical Supply to offer free tune-ups in seniors' mobility equipment. The initiative aims at increasing security and reducing fall risk among seniors in our community.

Given to the high demand, we now offer the service in 14 different localities in North Central CT and Western Massachusetts. The Tune-ups now occur in East Longmeadow MA, Enfield CT, Wilbraham MA, Somers CT, Vernon CT, Rockville CT, Agawam MA, Suffield CT, East Hartford CT, Manchester CT, and Springfield MA.

Fall prevention

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.

At Home Helpers Home Care, we believe that serving our community is an integral part of our company values. That’s why we organize informational activities, luncheons, senior support groups and equipment security checks in Senior Centers and Senior Housing Communities across our area of service.
