This Fall Focus on Fall Prevention in Charlotte!
Elderly fall prevention is more critical than ever during a Pandemic because seniors are isolated and alone more.
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 several reasons. That’s why we’ve developed our “Focus on Falls” fall prevention initiative, 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.

At BrightStar Care, our approach to fall prevention is rooted in our unparalleled clinical expertise. Each independently owned and operated BrightStar Care agency must pursue Joint Commission accreditation, a nationally recognized mark of quality. Following our Joint Commission commitment to National Patient Safety Goals, we relentlessly track falls that occur both when we are and are not present and perform analysis on all falls that do occur to determine what could have occurred to prevent it to better care for our clients and to reduce the likelihood it will occur again.
