In today’s society, Slips, Trips and Falls account for more debilitating injuries to Seniors than any other medical issue.

The importance of having the right footwear, proper lighting and creating a clutter free area are the key elements to decrease falls.

There a couple of other things to consider like wearing your glasses, putting in hearing aides and using you mobility devices.

At Aspen ridge we review all these issues with our Residents when they move in and when there is a concern.  We also provide nurse call pendants to call for help when it’s needed.  If you currently live at home please consider your options.  If you’re thinking about living in a safe environment come in and see us.
