Manhattan In-Home Companion Care Shields NYC Seniors from Falls with Touching Hearts NYC

NEW YORK, New York – The City of New York reports that one out of every three older adults aged 65 and above experiences a fall annually. This translates to approximately 30,500 seniors visiting the emergency room, leading to 16,600 fall-related hospitalizations.

From poorly maintained sidewalks to slippery surfaces in bathrooms and kitchens, the challenges for fall prevention among NYC seniors are growing. Additionally, the side effects of certain medications, such as dizziness or drowsiness, further compound the risk. Based on the findings of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), women fall more frequently than men and make up three-quarters of all hip fractures.

But here’s the reality: falling isn’t an inevitable part of aging – it’s preventable. Touching Hearts NYC, a leading provider of in-home care for seniors in Manhattan and its surrounding areas introduces its award-winning Manhattan in-home companion care. This service is meticulously designed to assist seniors in addressing fall risk factors through comprehensive fall risk assessments. Subsequently, professionally trained caregivers implement personalized fall management strategies to ensure optimal fall prevention care.

Under the expertise of Touching Hearts NYC’s care managers, thorough fall risk assessments are conducted for seniors. They diligently evaluate living environments, identifying hazards such as slippery floors, loose rugs or poorly lit areas. This proactive approach prioritizes seniors’ safety and well-being while mitigating the financial burden of fall-related injuries, including hospitalizations and medical treatments. With tailored fall risk assessments, Manhattan seniors can confidently embrace peace of mind and independent aging, knowing they’re free from the fear of falls and their consequences.

From the findings of fall risk assessment, Touching Hearts NYC’s caregivers employ a holistic companion care approach guided by individually tailored fall management strategies to prevent falls and enhance the safety and well-being of their clients. For example, caregivers recognize the importance of exercise in maintaining balance and reducing fall risk, as highlighted by the CDC. By supporting regular exercise routines in their clients’ daily lives, caregivers help improve muscle strength, flexibility, and posture, ultimately reducing the likelihood of falls.

Caregivers also assist with scheduling regular vision and hearing check-ups to maintain optimal sensory function for balance and fall prevention. Furthermore, caregivers assess living spaces to reduce fall hazards and remove clutter. By implementing these multifaceted fall prevention strategies, seniors in Manhattan can enhance their safety and quality of life and achieve significant cost savings by reducing fall-related hospitalizations.

Meryl H, a happy client in Manhattan, praised Touching Hearts NYC caregivers: “They’re not just caregivers; they’re family. They ensured my 88-year-old mother-in-law’s safety after her accident, reducing her fall risk and hospitalizations, allowing her to enjoy her golden years with peace of mind.”

The key to preventing falls lies in proactive and personalized care. Touching Hearts NYC offers a complementary fall risk assessment as part of its comprehensive companion care services. This assessment includes home safety evaluations, identification of fall risk factors, and practical tips for creating secure living environments. “Our goal is to empower Manhattan seniors to live independently and safely at home,” says Craig Sendach, Owner of Touching Hearts NYC. “By addressing fall risks proactively, we help seniors maintain mobility and quality of life. Additionally, we collaborate with the community to ensure a secure environment for Manhattan seniors, making the upcoming June meaningful as we celebrate National Safety Month.”
