STRATEGIES TO

Prevent & Reduce Falls


 

  • Educate older adults, caregivers, and/or healthcare providers around strategies for preventing falls, including medication review and management, vision exams,  home safety assessments, and home modifications.
  • Identify falls data (where the fall is occurring and why the fall is occurring) in order to target efforts; conduct a root cause analysis and implement interventions.
  • Promote policies and/or evidence-based practices to prevent falls.
  • Encourage older adults to increase their mobility by taking walks, swimming, gardening, or doing yoga.
