Balance & Fall Prevention
Roughly 85% of falls occur at home. Falls are one of the leading reasons for emergency room visits and patient placement into skilled nursing facilities. Declines in functional ability and the ability to perform self-care tasks, health conditions, and even medications can make it more likely that someone will fall. Our skilled therapy staff will develop an individualized Balance & Fall Prevention plan in conjunction with the physician that includes a multidisciplinary team approach. The plan will help with balance, flexibility, muscle strengthening and walking as well as identifying and resolving home safety issues – all of which will reduce a patient’s risk of falling.
