Austin, TX (PRWEB) July 22, 2014
For seniors needing evening protection from falls but not evening or overnight care, then "Always Safe" from Always Best Care Senior Services may be the right choice. This program, which includes a comprehensive home safety inspection and fall prevention and detection service is now available in Austin and the Hill Country.
Always Best Care is one of the nation’s leading providers of non-medical in-home care, assisted living placement services and skilled home health care. The company delivers its services through an international network of more than 200 independently owned and operated franchise territories and area representatives throughout the United States.
“Always Safe is another innovative program from Always Best Care that is playing a key role in providing the highest quality of care for seniors,” said. Glenn Scott, Owner of Always Best Care of Austin and the Hill Country, “We are very pleased to offer this unique service to the families in our area to help alleviate the worry that often comes with the care of a loved one.”
Always Safe is a fall detection and prevention program offered by Always Best Care offices throughout the country and is designed to address perhaps the most serious challenge facing many older adults: Falls.
Falls can be fatal!
Falls are the #1 cause of nursing home admissions in the USA. One out of three seniors falls every year and falls are the leading cause of both fatal and non-fatal accidents. Falls also are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries, contributing to nearly one-third of all injury-related deaths each year. Most alarming, two-thirds who fall and don’t receive help in 72 hours will not survive.
Always Safe begins with Always Best Care’s 35-point home safety inspection to identify and avoid hazards. Caregivers will work with your loved one on exercise routines to maintain flexibility and dexterity, monitor nutritional intake to maintain strength, help them with the activities of daily living, and adhere to the safety precautions and their care plan.
Monitoring Provided by Lifeline with AutoAlert
Then, in the evenings, Always Safe provides monitoring with the Lifeline emergency medical response system with AutoAlert, providing an added layer of protection by automatically placing a call for help if a fall is detected. AutoAlert is the most widely adopted personal emergency response system in the USA, detecting greater than 95% of falls. If a fall is detected, your loved one will be connected with the always-open response center. They’ll access their profile and assess the situation, reach out to an emergency contact based on their specific needs, and follow-up to confirm that help has arrived.
Free with 24 hours of weekly in-home care!
Always Safe’s combination of in-home care plus fall monitoring and detection means peace of mind to your entire family. Best of all, this added value is free* with Always Safe, which consists of 8 hours or more of personalized, professional care at least 3 days a week. It’s one more reason Always Best Care is the leader in providing in-home care, assisted living finder services and skilled home health care throughout the country.
