Statistics show that more than 40% of people hospitalized from hip fractures do not return home and are not capable of living independently again with 25% of those who have fallen pass away each year; falls can result in hip fractures, head injuries or even death. In many cases, those who have experienced a fall have a hard time recovering and their overall health deteriorates.
Some of the health factors that can contribute to falls are osteoporosis, being over age 80, changes in balance and walking patterns, changes in vision and sensation, and taking multiple medications. Studies show that balance, flexibility, and strength training not only improve mobility, but also reduce the risk of falling. 35% of people over the age of 65 do not participate in any leisure physical activity or exercise regularly. This lack of exercise only makes it harder for individuals to recover after a fall. Many people are afraid of falling again and reduce their physical activity even more. Specific physical activity can target reduce fall risk by increasing balance and mobility skills. Making changes to the home and community environment can reduce hazards and help support a person in completing daily activities.
Home therapy is usually offered to those that have mobility issues to improve their physical conditions such as gaining strength, improving balance and walking better with or without walking aids. We provide training to the caregivers and helpers by teaching them how to properly transfer their loved ones around for their daily activities as well as simple exercises that they can assist and do with them.
