Security At Night Benefits of Home Share
According to HSE.ie falls among older people can cause life changing consequences. It is more likely for an older person to suffer dangerous injuries, both physical and psychological, when having a fall. With age the risk increases and one out of three older people fall every year. As our population ages the number of falls and injuries in this age group will increase.
Elder Home Share carries a mission of providing needed help around the house, as well as friendship, and, most importantly, security at night. The major worry of our clients is having a parent or a closed one fall when there is nobody in the house. It can be very dangerous and lead to serious life threatening consequences. Solution to that is having someone around, it can prevent these kinds of situations, provide security and peace of mind to the next of kin.
