How To Prevent The Elderly From Falling At Home


The common causes for elderly people to fall at home besides accidental tripping are –

  • Dizziness
  • Epilepsy
  • Cardiac Problems
  • Medication overuse
  • Vertigo, etc.

If you come across a person who feels giddy or about to fall, gently support the person to the floor; make the person lie flat on the floor or cot. Avoid making the person sit in an upright position. Lying on the floor ensures augmented blood flow. Try to notice any involuntary abnormal movements over the face and eyes.
