Senior Fall Incidents Are on the Rise – Increasing the Need for a Fall Alarm

With seniors now taking up a larger portion of the population in Canada, it makes sense that the number of falling incidents involving seniors is on the rise, making it a concern that needs to be addressed to help lower these instances and ensure that seniors can get help as quickly as possible after a slip and fall.

According to Seniors’ Falls in Canada, it’s estimated that approximately 20-30% of seniors have a fall each year. They are also one of the leading causes of injury-related hospitalization. Therefore, prevention is key to reduce falls and minimize the effects of these falls, a reason why seniors are choosing to invest in fall alarm and emergency medical alert systems at home.

Fall Prevention Tips

While having a fall alarm is a great thing to have if you have a slip and fall incident, prevention should be the focal point of your health and wellbeing. The more you can do now to prevent a fall from happening, the better, and the fewer odds you will have of experiencing a fall. To prevent falls at home and wherever you go, here are some great tips to follow:

  • Always use good quality footwear
  • Pay attention to where you are going and where you are stepping
  • Take your time going up and down stairs
  • Install gripped bath mats in your bathtub
  • Turn on lights when walking around the house at night
  • Keep your home clear of tripping hazards
  • Ask for help – don’t try to carry objects that are too heavy or do things that are outside of your comfort zone

The truth is that you never know when a fall could happen, and taking these precautions to prevent a fall could minimize injuries and even save your life. If you do fall, having a fall alarm ensures you can get help immediately, no matter where you fall.

The Risks of Falling

The risks of falling are very real. Seniors are not as resilient as they were in their younger years where we would just get up and dust ourselves off after a fall. Falls could have very serious effects on our health. A fall can cause a variety of injuries, and the impact of these injuries could change your life and impact your health and wellbeing.

From your standard broken bones, muscles strains, soreness, and even head injuries, a bad fall could cause an extended stay in the hospital. Above this, it could also cause a loss of confidence or even create a fear of falling that could have an impact on the things you do and how you live your life.

We don’t want anyone worrying about “What happens if I fall?” or “Will I be able to get help if I fall and no one is around?” Our fall alarms give you the confidence to go about your day, knowing that we are always here to help – all you need to do is click the button for immediate access to emergency assistance.
