Why Fall Prevention Is Important

Falling is the leading cause of injury in adults over the age of 65. Injuries from falling may not be noticeable at first, but failure to recognize symptoms can be potentially fatal. Injuries often inflict physical and emotional pain for the patient, with recovery time lasting up to a year in a rehabilitation center or long-term care facility. When an elderly person falls, the pressure from being on the floor for an extended period of time can result in kidney failure and worsen other chronic diseases.

How We Can Help

Most falls happen because of loss of balance. Patients may have neglected the use of a walker or other assistive device and fallen as a result. Caregivers focus on reducing the risk of injury and frequency of falls to encourage safe, independent at-home living.
