At Next Day Access of Indianapolis, we like to say that preparation prevents desperation. As people elect to age in place in the beautiful state of Indiana, they can begin a series of modifications to their dwelling that ease the transition. Often we hear the complaint that folks don’t want their home to take on an institutional look, but we can dispel that notion when you call us for your free, in-home estimate.
What are the Risks?
Today, Americans are living longer while staying active and healthy. But adults 65 and older are at risk for falls, which can signal the beginning of the end of that active life – and their independence. Injuries from falls can lead to limited activity, reduced mobility, loss of fitness and a fear of falling, all of which increase risk of additional injury.
Falls also are the leading cause of injury-related death for adults age 65 and older.
