Are You Accident-prone, or Did You Just Have a Bad Day?
Winter is in the rear-view mirror now that spring has shown its lovely face. Thank goodness!
Are you looking forward to strolls along the lakeshore or through the woods, or do you like to walk to the store to pick up your newspaper and milk? We’ve already started getting outside more often despite the rainy days.
Speaking of rain…living in Canada, we always make sure that we dress for the weather, which means choosing sensible footwear and a proper coat. Rain, however, can make surfaces slippery and is one of the main causes for erosion along rivers, creeks and lakes. This means that we should all use extra care when enjoying the outdoors during or after a rainfall.
If you’re more of a home body, then consider the steps in and around your house. Falling down steps or tripping over objects on the ground when we’re paying attention to something else is also quite common.
Have you been admitted to a hospital for a serious injury?
More serious injuries that involve a concussion or other head trauma may require a hospital stay. Check out our Hospital Discharge Care section for more information. (please link the bold words to the page that contains the article on Hospital Discharge Care)
If you or someone you know has had an accidental fall, you may need some extra help around the house in addition to nursing care. Your insurance coverage for trip and fall accidents can offer you peace of mind that your medical and nursing needs are met. Retire-At-Home Halton can work with you to create a custom care plan for your specific needs.
