The Importance of Fall Prevention in the Elderly

September 11, 2015
Elderly fall prevention is more critical than ever before to families. Each year, one in every three adults age 65 and older falls and the results can be life-altering. At BrightStar Care, most of our clients are identified as being at risk of falling for a number of reasons. That's why we've developed our "Focus on Falls" fall prevention program, a unique solution that pairs our clinical expertise and patient education for family caregivers to reduce fall risk by managing chronic conditions, monitoring medications and helping to address other top causes of falls in seniors. All year long and especially leading up to National Falls Prevention Awareness Day on September 23, fall prevention is at the forefront of our minds and attention.  Contact our local BrightStar Care office to learn more about our different and better approach to fall risk reduction.
