Staying on Your Feet

As we age, we may not be as strong as we once were. Our balance is probably not as good as it once was. Perhaps we have already suffered a fall as a result. In any case, whether you have had to deal with the results of a fall or not, falling is something we are all concerned about and guard against. Being careful is our number one tactic, but that is not generally enough to fully protect you.

According to the National Council on Aging, one in four Americans over the age of 65 falls each year, resulting in 7 million injuries. Prevention should be the focus when it comes to falls, and this can include a variety of strategies.

Serving Seniors home care staff can provide important supports when it comes to prevention of falls. Often it is not just balance that is involved, but vision, physical fitness, wearing the proper shoes, and assuring that the living space is clear of clutter, all areas where our staff can be of assistance.

Working to help motivate the senior to keep active and complete their home exercise program, as well as assisting with meal preparation for a healthy diet and providing medication reminders, are all components of a safe living environment. These are just some of the ways Serving Seniors can work with you to keep you stronger and free from many of the risks that produce falls.

Joan Sardino

Joan Sardino has held key positions in operations management, customer service and logistics. Her mission today is to empower seniors to live independently in their homes for as long as possible. Joan oversees a staff of experienced, patient caregivers dedicated to senior care and companionship. Serving Seniors provides service to the senior community in Syracuse and the surrounding area (Clay, Cicero, Liverpool, Baldwinsville, Central Square).

Most seniors can live independent lives for quite some time with just minor assistance. Family and friends cannot always be there to help with daily tasks, but Serving Seniors can help fill the need for transportation, errands, housekeeping, and more. Just a few hours a week can enhance your senior’s independence, happiness and overall quality of life.

Joan assists concerned families seeking a trained caregiver who will treat their loved ones with dignity, respect and compassion. Serving Seniors provides the highest level in-home non-medical care and companionship. Families and seniors can be assured of friendly, personalized service from dedicated, compassionate caregivers.
