Sudden Falls Are Not Normal in Old Age

Home security and safety for elderly

Having an elderly person at home increases responsibilities. With old age come many unwanted strain, the most feared one is definitely sudden falls. Falls are the single biggest reason for death and wounds amongst older adults. Due to our busy lives, the elderly ones remain neglected thus ensuring their home safety and security becomes our primary priority. One can either opt for assisted living or nurse at home. However, if the older adults wishes to be left alone then one has no other option but to install home security or in simpler language, CCTV cameras. In this way, we can keep a tab on our near and dear ones even when we are away on duty.

What Causes Older People to Fall?

Since home safety and security is our primary concern thus first we must look at the various reasons as to why older people have a tendency to fall, they are:

• Changes in their body, for example, vision issues and loss of feeling

• Debilitating muscles and hardening joints

• New medical issues

• Reactions from any drug they consume – particularly in the event that they are taking at least five pharmaceuticals

• Tangible and balance issues

• Low calcium – expands the danger of having a break on the off chance that you do fall

Sore feet or risky shoes

• Trip perils like carpets or floor mats, uneven surfaces and poor lighting at home or outside.

Home Safety and Security to Avoid Falls:

Must have home safety and security at home to prevent falls and injuries from fall:

• Less furniture, pet apparatus, electrical strings, floor coverings and whatever else that may make somebody fall.

• CCTV surveillance all around the house in case one cannot afford assisted living or nurse at home thus ensuring home safety and security.

• Keeping a constant tab on the whereabouts of the elderly people so that any kind of abnormality can be avoided.
