Mrs.Kamla Tiwari, 79 years old, had a fall, a femur fracture due to which she could not walk properly. Mrs. Rajni Tiwari, patient’s daughter-in-law recollects how her mother-in-law’s recurrent episode of falls were a constant source of fear for the family.
With the hope to prevent such traumatic episodes and provide good care to the patient, the Tiwari household decided to avail professional help and engaged with Life Circle.
Before engaging with Life Circle, the patient used to keep up all night and sleep during daytime. Now she is active during the day and sleeps well at night. The care is better, patient is active and there have not been any falls.
Earlier the patient did not like any sort of interaction; not even with the grand kids, but now she interacts well with everyone and is happier than before. Mrs. Rajni smiles and says- “Life has become easy since we engaged with Life Circle, our experience has been excellent”.
Falls and fall related injuries are among the most serious and common medical problems experienced by older adults. Falls prevention is a challenge to the population ageing. The economic impact of falls is critical to family, community and society. We get to learn from the case of Mrs. Kamla Tiwari how small yet substantial steps in life can bring about remarkable changes in patient’s health. Don’t fall, it is preventable with professional care!!
