For family caregivers, it can often feel like the world is on your shoulders. Between caring for your loved one, children, work, and your countless other responsibilities, it can be a real challenge to find time to care for yourself. Missing work is often a big issue for caregivers as they have limited options for care during the day. That’s where Innovative Senior Solutions’ adult day care services can help!

Who Should Consider Adult Day Care Services?

Adult day care services are designed to ensure that seniors and loved ones with medical or developmental disabilities have care during the day, allowing family caregivers to work or have some respite from caregiving duties. Adult day care typically takes place in a facility outside the person’s home where people can socialize and participate in activities with others in a safe and supportive environment.

At Innovative Senior Solutions, we are committed to helping clients and caregivers find the balance they need to live their best lives. Our adult day care centers are specially designed with this mission in mind. Our highly trained care providers and nurses offer a safe, relaxed, and home-like atmosphere where adults who need care can participate in activities with others while receiving the assistance and personal care support they need throughout the day.

Simple Home Modifications to Prevent Senior Falls

Use these simple home modifications to create a safer home for your senior loved one.

For younger adults, falling might result in a bruise, skinned knee, or just injured pride. But for seniors, a fall can cause serious injury. Falls are the leading cause of head trauma, hip fractures, and even death from injury. And they’re much more prevalent in seniors – 25% more likely in those age 65 and older.
The reasons behind this increased risk are as varied as the seniors themselves, but typically include factors such as poor vision, decreased strength, balance, flexibility and endurance, and side effects from medications.
One key way to prevent senior falls is to take some simple steps to modify the home environment, where most falls occur. The Albany home care professionals at Innovative Senior Solutions suggest the following room-by-room tips:

In the kitchen…

  • Store frequently-used items in easy-to-reach locations, preventing the need to bend down or stretch up as much as possible.
  • Keep the floor clean and dry, making sure to clear away any spills immediately.
  • Keep the room free of clutter, particularly in high traffic areas.
  • Make sure chairs are always pushed in underneath the table.

In the bathroom…

  • Add secure grab bars to the bath and shower walls and beside the toilet.
  • Utilize a shower chair and handheld shower head.
  • Place non-slip treads in the tub/shower.
  • Make sure any bath mats are secured to the floor with double-sided carpet tape.
  • Ensure floors are clean and dry.

In the living/family/bed rooms…

  • Allow sufficient space between furnishings to move around, ensuring plenty of room for a walker if needed.
  • Keep rooms well lit, including night lights in the bedroom, bathroom, hallways and kitchen.
  • Remove any clutter, throw rugs, extension cords, etc. from floors throughout the home.
  • If there are stairways in the home, make sure there are handrails on both sides of the stairs. It’s also a good idea to install a chair lift for those with mobility issues.
