elderly caregiver in-home consultation visit

Did you know?…

Each year, 1 in 3 Americans 65 years of age and older falls - this risk increases with age. For the elderly, falling can cause serious injury, resulting in hospitalization, loss of independence, or even death.1

As part of your initial consultation, your Heaven Sent Helpers Client Manager will walk through your home with you and offer suggestions on changes you might make to help prevent falls. Often the smallest changes can make a big difference for loved ones that have vision or gait challenges.
