September 23 Falls Prevention Awareness Day!

Fall Prevention

MetLife has issued a wonderful resource for community members; Falls and Fall Prevention.  An excerpt; “Accidental falls cause the majority of injury-related visits to the emergency room in the U.S.—and they’re the leading cause of accidental death in people over age 65. As we age we have a greater risk of falling. More than a third of all older adults experience a fall, and between 20% and 30% of all falls for this age group result in moderate to severe injuries.”

Falls in the home we know are a real issue.  Because CareForce provides clinical oversight to all of our clients, we are attuned to the sometimes subtle changes that occur with our clients over time.  We assist our clients with exercise programs to prevent muscle loss and increase balance.  We can assist our clients in partnering with community based programs to reduce isolation and increase activity everyday.  Our clinical staff can assist with logging progress to give the feedback necessary to make exercise sustainable overtime with our clientele.
