It is very wrong to assume that old age means having to stay home and simply sit or lie around just to avoid accidents. Among the most common causes of slip and fall accidents is the lack of balance which results from the absence of sufficient movement and practice. It is therefore very important for seniors to condition their bodies for movement, especially when they are still able.
Here’s how you can help:
- Encourage them to be physically active. Find an exercise routine that’s right for seniors.
- Let them do things for leisure and meet new people with whom they can share their activities.
- Have family members check up on them regularly to provide assistance and ask about their needs.
