Making aging at home better for senior citizens


AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) — For the second time this month, the oldest living U.S. President is recovering from a serious fall.

95-year-old Jimmy Carter is one of 50 million seniors living in our nation right now – and the CDC says one out of four of these seniors experience some sort of fall every year.

This is why local experts with Visiting Angels, a provider of in-home care, work daily to educate seniors and their loved ones in our community about how to keep grandma and grandpa from tripping and falling while navigating through the rooms and hallways of the family home. They‘ve even created a program called Safe & Steady to keep local seniors secure in the place they love the most, their homes.

Beth Bandi with Visiting Angels Caregivers stopped by Good Morning Augusta Weekends to talk with anchor Shawn Cabbagestalk about the steps you can take to prevent your loved one from getting hurt and how Visiting Angels can help you.
