"How a Caregiver in Enterprise can Help Prevent Falls"


If you have elderly loved ones living on their own, it's best to take a proactive approach to fall risk. At Interim HealthCare of Dothan, we see fall prevention as an essential part of helping our clients live freely and fully at home. Our caregivers in Enterprise can help reduce your loved one's fall risk, so they can retain the independence they love.

What Your Loved One's Caregiver in Enterprise Can Do 

Falls are the primary cause of major injuries among seniors, which is why we take fall prevention so seriously at Interim HealthCare of Dothan. 

While certain aspects of aging make seniors more at risk for falls in general, your loved one also has their own specific issues to address. As part of our home care services, our caregivers in Enterprise can advise you on your family member's particular risk factors like their vision, mobility, medications, or even the layout of their home. 

Depending on your loved one's needs, our local Enterprise-area care team may suggest simple safety features that could make their home safer and easier to navigate. We can also provide the following in-person support:

  • Help with certain household tasks — A caregiver can take over everyday chores that your loved one finds difficult, painful, or potentially dangerous. This may include buying groceries and running errands, tidying up around the home, or doing the laundry.
  • Regular visits to provide comfort and oversight — Even just the fear of falling can severely limit your loved one's quality of life at home. Our care professionals can offer some peace of mind for your relative and the rest of the family by being there to help and to identify potential risks.
  • Physical support when needed — If your loved one has joint stiffness or some other restriction on their movements, our caregivers can lend a helping hand. We can provide walking assistance, help with bathing, getting dressed, grooming and more.
