FALL PREVENTION PROGRAM

Falls are the main reason why many older adults lose their independence!

In addition to causing a physical injury, falls can impact a person emotionally and socially. Bottom line, a fall can significantly change a person’s quality of life. Unfortunately, the fear of falling often causes seniors to avoid leaving the house, decline social invitations, and miss important family functions. This behavior can lead to feelings of anxiety, loneliness, social isolation, sadness, and depression.

Falls Don’t Just Happen!

Fall and injury prevention continues to be a considerable challenge to seniors. Our commitment to investing in educating older adults, their families, caregivers, and service providers about ways to reduce falls is crucial for the ongoing quality of life of our client’s.
