When a senior takes a fall in front of us, we may react in a way that doesn't help. Many people immediately try to pick them up, allowing the senior to use them to pull up their weight. This not only causes injury to the caregiver, but it is also not the right way to pick a senior up. Slow and steady is the best course of action to take after a senior has fallen down. Follow these steps to make sure your loved one gets up safely and easily, with no further harm to either of you.
