Falls prevention STRATEGIES FOR ASSISTING AN ELDERLY PERSON AFTER A FALL: WITH OR WITHOUT SPECIALIST EQUIPMENT
Dealing with a situation where an elderly person has fallen can be distressing. Whether it’s a loved one or someone you care for, it’s crucial to approach the scenario cautiously to avoid causing further harm. This article outlines the immediate steps to take, how to safely assist them from the floor, and when to involve specialist equipment or professional help.
First Steps to Take After a Fall
Before attempting to lift the fallen person, take a moment to assess the situation and ensure there are no apparent signs of injury. This initial evaluation is essential to avoid exacerbating any potential harm. If the person is shocked or agitated, helping them calm down by guiding them to take deep, slow breaths can be beneficial.
For a comprehensive injury assessment, consider using an approved tool such as the one provided by the Department of Health Victoria: https://www.health.vic.gov.au/wellbeingand-participation/falls-prevention-tools

What to Do Next
Falls among older individuals are taken very seriously by healthcare professionals due to their potentially severe consequences. Therefore, it’s recommended to consult your local GP for guidance on the next steps.
It’s important to note that if they struggle or experience pain, it’s advisable to call emergency services for assistance.
During the consultation, the GP will likely assess the fallen person’s health and balance. If the person is on medication, the GP will review these medications to determine if any side effects contribute to the risk of falling.

Additional recommendations could include:
1. EYE TEST: Identifying vision problems through an eye examination.
2. BLOOD PRESSURE CHECK: Assessing blood pressure in various positions.
3. HOME ASSESSMENT: Having a healthcare professional evaluate the living environment for potential hazards and offer advice on fall prevention.
Preparation for Future Falls
While prevention is ideal, the possibility of future falls remains. Consider keeping a falls assessment tool handy for peace of mind. Additionally, many elderly individuals are choosing to have lifting equipment at home to respond quickly and safely to falls, avoiding extended wait times for help. JD Healthcare Group offers Raizer Lifting Chairs, and alternatives such as Hovermatt SPU and Mobile Hoist and Slings are also available

MANAGING HEEL PRESSURE AND HOW TO RELIEVE IT
Understanding Heel Pressure
Heel pressure has the potential to result in severe skin injuries behind the heel. If not effectively managed, it can escalate into further ulceration. This is particularly observed in individuals with compromised skin integrity or those who are immobile and confined to extended periods of bed rest. The vulnerability of the area behind the heel stems from the presence of a distinctive ridge on the heel bone, known as the Calcaneus, which protrudes at the back. Additionally, the skin covering this region is
thin and lacks substantial cushioning, such as muscle or fat, that typically shields the bone from direct skin contact.
Heel pressure occurs when individuals lie down, causing the rear of the heel to make contact with the surface of the bed. The weight of the leg applies pressure to the back of the heel, an area with limited padding or resistance to pressure. Even slight movement of the heel against the bed leads to shear stress on the skin, resulting in redness and inflammation.
UNDERSTANDING HEEL PRESSURE 8 The Caregiver’s Compass | Issue 2 | September 2023
Heel pressure-related concerns are prevalent across various groups. Prolonged bed rest is a common scenario in which heel pressure can manifest. The protective skin in this region is thin, with minimal soft tissue in the form of tendons or muscles safeguarding the underlying bone. When individuals experience compromised skin integrity and are largely immobile, they spend extended periods in bed. Considering their resting position, the heels are in direct contact with the bed’s surface. The slightest movements during this time contribute to ongoing shear pressure on the bedding, potentially causing pressure injuries within a matter of hours. This could manifest as a reddish blemish, similar to the experience of developing a blister from new shoes, or progress to a burst blister and eventually transform into an ulcer.
Symptoms and Underlying Causes
As previously mentioned, initial signs of pressure may present as discolouration on the heel, characterised by shades of red, purple, or blue. This discolouration is akin to a bruise, resulting from blood accumulation at the skin’s surface. It’s also probable that fluid will accumulate within the skin, resembling a blister. Once the skin breaks, the person becomes susceptible to infection or tissue necrosis.
There are several known factors that increase a patient’s risk of developing a heel pressure ulcer, including:
c Inadequate/malnutrition - Poor vitamin intake and absorption from food can lead to thinning of the skin and therefore decreased blood flow.
c Advancing Age - Elderly people who spend an increased amount of time in bed can lead to shear and pressure in areas of poor skin integrity.
c Abnormalities of circulation - This may be due to vascular issues where blood flow is limited to the extremities and a lack of red blood cells to an injury will delay healing. This is also common in patients with diabetes.
c Sensory deficiency - For example, people with diabetes who may experience nerve damage are at increased risk of pressure sores. Nerve damage causing loss of sensation is called Diabetic Neuropathy.
c Immobility - May be caused by paralysis, stroke or severe illness. Fractures of the bones in the legs may
also lead to immobility for a period of time. Common fractures to occur are the neck of the femur (NOF) fractures also known as a broken hip
c Major surgery - Heart, lung and some orthopaedic surgeries restrict mobility and hence increase time in bed. Long periods of time laying in bed increase chances of pressure sores.
c Multiple health problems (comorbidities) - Particularly coronary or respiratory can lead to long term bed rest. Long periods laying in bed increases the chances of pressure sores.
c Dehydration - Hydration is vital for maintaining skin integrity and wound healing. Adequate fluid intake is necessary to support blood flow to wounded tissues and to prevent additional breakdown of the skin.
Treatment & Prevention
Offloading is described as lifting or pushing an area of high pressure away from the cause of the pressure. To offload is to distribute the load to other areas which are not susceptible to pressure areas. Both the calf and foot can help with the offloading. Heel pressure is redistributed to both the calf, a soft muscle belly which can change shape to fit a supportive device as well as the foot.

As people get older their skin begins to change. Aged care workers have been accustomed to dealing with these changes to elderly people’s skin by moisturising and protecting the limb from the environment. This process has worked quite well in the past - but there has always been a concern with the type of elastic bandages used to keep the moisture in - this is where Protect-a-Limb® steps in.
This exciting product has been designed to take the bumps and bruises out of life due to its durability, high comfort level, easy application, and soft to touch and feel against the skin - not to mention, it’s extremely cost effective - making it a must in every aged care facility.
Protect-a-Limb® is an Australian made healthcare product designed and tested in Australian conditions. It has been engineered to ensure the person requiring the garment remains cool in summer and warm in winter - a necessity in our harsh Australian climate.
The “cool in summer and warm in winter” element of Protect-aLimb® is achieved by the unique Coolmax ® System. Coolmax®, which is a registered trademark of INVISTA, is a channelled synthetic fibre on the inner of Protect-a-Limb ®, surrounded by cotton on the outer surface which is slightly retentive.
• Dries faster than other fabrics
• Is cost effective - saving time in application
• Gives protection against friction to vulnerable limbs
• Aids in patient comfort
• Wicks away moisture and prevents maceration
• Is hygienic - can be washed as easily as a pair of socks
• Has sealed ends to prevent fraying
Protects the limbs from skin tears and skin damage! It is light in weight and yet bulky enough to work!
Preventing a fall is easier than recovering from one
Fall Prevention Strategies for Common Risk Factors
Falls, whether occurring at home or within aged care facilities, share similar risk factors that can lead to serious injuries like fractures and head trauma. Implementing a combination of strategies is essential for effective fall prevention:
Enhancing Mobility Through Exercise:
Regular physical activity, emphasising functional strength and balance exercises, plays a pivotal role in reducing fall risk by up to 23%*. Incorporating routines like tai chi and tailored exercises, even for those with limited mobility, aids in enhancing overall stability.
Evaluating Foot Health and Footwear:
The choice of footwear and foot health significantly impacts balance. Seeking guidance from a podiatrist to assess foot condition and opting for appropriate footwear, such as athletic shoes with proper support and non-slip features, greatly reduces fall potential.
Alleviating Dizziness Symptoms:
Addressing dizziness, which becomes more prevalent with age, is vital to prevent falls. Timely medical evaluation and management of underlying causes can mitigate this risk.
12 The Caregiver’s Compass | Issue 2 | September 2023
Reviewing Medication Usage:
Regular medication reviews, particularly for individuals aged 65 and above, are crucial. Awareness of potential medication interactions, side effects like dizziness, and sedative effects can effectively reduce fall-related risks.
Screening for Vision Issues: Routine vision screenings are pivotal in identifying visual changes related to aging. Various eye conditions, such as glaucoma and macular degeneration, necessitate tailored fall prevention measures to ensure safety.
Assessing Living Conditions: Modifying living spaces significantly impacts fall risks. Strategies like improving lighting, providing assistive devices, installing secure handrails, rearranging furniture, and addressing wet surfaces greatly reduce hazards.

TRANSFORM A STANDARD BED INTO AN AUTOMATED LATERAL TURNING BED
The new Levabo Turn All™ lateral turning system has been developed to assist clinicians and carers in the acute, aged, community and home care settings. It is designed to streamline the delivery of consistent and effective pressure care for vulnerable immobile patients, with pre-existing pressure injuries, as
well as providing protection for those at risk of developing them. This is achieved by automating the process of gently and regularly repositioning these patients by rolling them into a 30° side-lying posture, on both sides of the body, for a set period of time. Carers are given a choice of 3 cycle times for improved pressure care options.
Clinical practice guidelines recommend regular repositioning at least every two hours for patients with reduced mobility (NICE GUIDELINE 2015).The 2019 International pressure injury guidelines ( EPUAP,NPIAP, PPPIA) recommend the use of the 30° side lying position.

You are important STRATEGIES TO REDUCE STRESS FOR CAREGIVERS
Did you know that there’s a specific term used to describe the burnout often experienced by senior caregivers? Widely recognised in the healthcare community, this phenomenon is referred to as caregiver syndrome , caregiver fatigue , or caregiver stress . While these terms are sometimes used interchangeably, they haven’t yet been formally included in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
Regardless of the terminology employed, the symptoms of caregiver stress are real and encompass a range of physical and psychological challenges. These can include issues like insomnia, depression, fatigue, emotional overeating, weakened immunity, and a higher risk of chronic conditions like high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, and other ailments. Unfortunately, caregivers’ own health often takes a back seat for extended periods. Recognising these symptoms and seeking help is of paramount importance.
Fortunately, there is assistance available for senior caregivers through various avenues. Though it might feel challenging to ask for help, numerous programs and services are dedicated to alleviating caregiver stress. Embracing support from others, such as respite care, transportation services, meal preparation, social activities, and other community resources, can significantly lighten the burden and stress experienced by caregivers. Check out: NSW Carer Gateway.
FOR CARERS: YOU ARE IMPORTANT! 18 The Caregiver’s Compass | Issue 2 | September 2023
STAY CONNECTED TO OTHERS
Sharing experiences with others can help caregivers manage stress, reduce feelings of isolation, and recognise that they are not alone. Caregivers should find someone they can talk to about their feelings like a therapist, a fellow caregiver, clergy, friend or family member.
FIND RESPITE SOLUTIONS
Get a break for a few hours, a few days or even longer. Respite is offered in or outside the home, in a community or faith-based agency or organisation, at an adult day care program, in a hospital or healthcare facility, a nursing home, an assisted living facility, or adult foster home. Family members, friends or neighbours may also be available to act as a respite provider.
Reactions to stress can include lack of sleep, overeating, undereating, increased alcohol consumption and smoking. Be aware of these detrimental responses and receive regular health check-ups to ensure good health practices.
SEEK AND ACCEPT HELP
Speak up when you need support or assistance. Join a support network. Help can come from community resources, online support forums, local groups and professionals. Consider getting help to manage meals, transportation, social activities, and services to assist with other daily needs.
Don’t forget to participate in enjoyable or relaxing activities. Partake in a social outing or a hobby such as art or another creative endeavour. Read a good book, listen to music, watch a movie or relax in a warm bath. Regular self-care is a must for caregivers!
KEEP A POSITIVE PERSPECTIVE
Striving to maintain a positive outlook can make a real difference. Writing in a gratitude journal or simply choosing to focus on the good in daily situations can help to reduce negative thoughts and feelings resulting from stress or overwhelm.
It can help to talk to medical staff about options that are available for every stage of aging or disease. Area Agencies on Aging, Aging and Disability Resources Centres, Aging Info and Referral services, and other programs are trusted community links to information and services for older adults and their caregivers.
A quick 10-minute walk outside can help improve mood, offer fresh air and a change of scenery. Daily exercise breaks can change a hectic pace and mindset. Yoga and stretching can also relax the mind and reduce the feeling of overwhelm and stress.
MEDITATION & BREATHING PRACTICES
There is increasing evidence that mindful meditation can help ease psychological stresses like anxiety, depression, and pain. An effective relaxation method developed at Harvard Medical school involves deep breathing exercises.
The symptoms of caregiver stress are real and encompass a range of physical and psychological challenges.
