Our fall prevention program focuses on providing a way to monitor, manage, and reduce the risk of falls in each of our residents. It is a big part of what we do. There are simple things that we do to achieve this, such as providing support whenever someone is getting into or out of bed. It also means keeping property and areas dry and free from items on the ground that could cause a fall or trip.
Fall detection and prevention technologies may also be available. These are tools we can use to help monitor the risks for falls. That includes providing help when your loved one needs to use the bathroom instead of putting them at risk for a fall. By closely monitoring their activity, we can ensure you are less likely to fall or trip.
Fall prevention is a huge part of our work because it is critical to our residents’ long-term health and wellbeing. The risks of a fall are numerous:
When an older person falls, the risk of damage through a significant injury is higher. More so, it can be challenging to recover from such an injury. That can lead to numerous complications to overall health, including pain and difficulty doing everyday tasks. Prevention is the best opportunity to minimize this risk.
Falls in those who are older can lead to numerous complications. But, what causes them to happen so commonly?
In every situation, it is vital to ensure a person has the least risk of a fall. That’s why our team is always there to help your loved one.
