Tips to Avoid Falls and Bone Fractures for Seniors

June 11, 2018

Osteoporosis is a silent condition because there aren’t many signs that point toward having the disease.  Unfortunately, the typical first sign of osteoporosis is a broken bone.  Common places for bone fractures include the wrist, the spine, as well as the hip, so a broken bone can truly hinder a person’s daily routines.  Therefore, finding ways to prevent slips, tumbles, and falls can greatly reduce your chance of falling and breaking your bones. Contrary to popular beliefs, exercise is actually beneficial for people with osteoporosis because it improve strength, flexibility and balance to help prevent against falls.  Another way to keep seniors alert is by talking to your doctor about medications that causes drowsiness and see if there are alternative options that do not have such side effects. Finally, keep your home clutter free and add safety devices such as grab bars and rubber mats in the bath to ensure the minimum risk of accidents around the home.
