Fall Prevention

Your safety is a major concern of the entire Fairview Home Care and Hospice staff. Falling is the leading cause of death from injury among older adults, and falls are among the most common causes of hospitalization. The good news is that falls can be prevented. That is why each of our patients receives a falls risk assessment, and our staff is specially trained to help keep you from falling.

The assessment and survey

Here are just some of the things we look at in a falls risk assessment:

Lifestyle choices that affect the risk of falling

  • Medication management issues
  • Your home environment
  • Your strength and balance

After the assessment

When the assessment is complete, we will write a plan specifically for you with recommendations on what and who can help you avoid falling. The plan also includes actions for those involved in your health care, including your physician, home care staff and caregivers.
