How can I prevent falls for a loved one with Alzheimer's?

Elderly individuals are at a high risk of being injured due to falls. This is due to a combination of age-related factors. However, if you have a loved one in Wisconsin who has Alzheimer's, his or her risk of falls is even higher than normal. According to the Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research Foundation, the risk for Alzheimer's patients is actually three times higher than normal.

Why older people are more prone to falling

If you identify as a Wisconsin senior citizen, your risk of suffering a serious fall and related injury is far higher than that of someone much younger than you. Unfortunately, as you age, you develop a number of risk factors that make you far more likely to take a tumble. Because your strength, bone and muscle mass tend to decrease over time, you may be more likely to suffer a serious injury as a senior than you were in your younger years. At Hannula, Halom & Scherz, we recognize that one fall has the capacity to impact the rest of your life, and we have assisted many clients who suffered injuries because of someone else’s negligence pursue appropriate recourse.
