Staying Safe at Home and Selecting Home Care

Nancy Tomaselli, PT Supervisor for VNHSC and Mary Ann Dunbar, Executive Director, A Caring Hand

Falls are the number 1 cause of injuries in seniors resulting in hip fractures, cuts, bruises, and head injuries. Slippery floors, electrical cords, and area rugs may seem harmless, but they can be the culprits. Nancy will explain how you can make your home safe with very basic changes. Proper lighting, the right shoes, and cleaning up clutter are just some of the things we will discuss. Mary Ann will then discuss what you need to know when selecting a private duty agency.
