We’ve discussed how a fall can have a physical impact on an elderly resident and also how it can have an emotional/psychological one. Something we haven’t touched on however is the financial cost falls have on care homes and how, with a few easy changes to policies they can make significant annual savings.
Did you know for instance…
So, what can you do to address all those issues? Is there a solution that will solve all the concerns we’ve just highlighted? Well without sounding too self-serving we certainly think so. Before we get to the solution though here’s a little fact for you. Did you know that every ambulance in the country carries one of our ELK’s and a lot of them also carry one of our Camel’s? If a resident falls and is uninjured when the paramedics arrive to lift them they’ll do so with one of these devices… So why not just have one at your care home in the first place?
If you’re interested in learning more about stocking a Camel or an ELK in a care home then there’s a lot more detail on them here or if you’re still unsure as to the benefits of them why not contact us here to discuss things?
