More than 1 in 4 older adults will fall each year in Martin County
We are helping to prevent slips and trips in Florida with Fall Prevention Care, Resoures and Tips.
Here is how we help assess a clients fall risk:
As part of our comprehensive initial visit, a BrightStar Care Registered Nurse assesses health-related fall risks. Our RN uses her professional analysis to create the appropriate approach to care and reducing those fall risks. We perform this unique level of assessment at least every six months for companion-care clients, every 90 days for personal-care clients, and every 60 days for skilled-care clients.
Our professional caregivers also review a home safety checklist for environmental fall risks in the home, and we provide the results to family members. We even have a particular home safety checklist for clients living with dementia who have special fall-risk considerations. We track and trend falls, those that occur with or without a BrightStar Care caregiver present, and use the data to identify opportunities to update caregiver training or reevaluate care protocols or client equipment needs.
