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.

Common causes of falls include:

  • Electrical cords across the floor
  • Unstable rails, tables, chairs or other items that an individual might try to lean on for support while walking
  • Dim lighting
