Fall Prevention Strategies
The more risk factors a person has, the greater his or her chances of falling. Adopt universal use of fall risk assessments and prevention in our facilities. Therefore, we inspect resident rooms of potential tripping hazards. As well as that we watch for untied shoelaces, slippery socks and, other risk factors.
Our caring team does its very best to react to calls for assistance. Moreover, we monitor when falls occur to identify potential patterns that can be rectified.
Our Resident Strengthening Program focuses on fall reduction and prevention. Importantly its emphasis on strengthening and developing existing abilities and a forward-thinking approach to “preventing the preventable.”
Rehabilitation After a Fall
We believe in fall prevention. In close partnership with our rehabilitation partner, who has extensive experience in rehabilitation, assisted living, skilled care, and home care fields. Along with, our assembled professional team approach to looking at the individual and to help him/her, utilize their capabilities while recognizing needs and addressing them.
With falls being a significant contributor to partial and complete losses of independence and function, the Resident Strengthening Program holistically helps each resident maintain their highest level of functioning.
