Falling is one of the main causes of injury in seniors, and unfortunately, many seniors fall every year, resulting in a great deal of pain and costly medical treatments. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one out of every three older adults aged 65 or older falls each year. In addition, seniors who fall usually suffer from a significant decrease in their quality of living that may affect them throughout the remainder of their lives.

At Providence Care Assisted Living our goal is to provide excellent care for our residents, which includes fall prevention. Our employees are up-to-date on the latest techniques and practice a variety of strategies that help keep our residents safe from harm.

· Awareness

Statistically, there are certain senior populations who are more likely to fall. For instance, females are more likely to fall than are men. Patients who have fallen before are one to six times more prone to fall again, and those with certain forms of dementia or impaired cognitive reasoning concerning balance and daily activities are more likely to fall as well. Finally, people who have diabetes are often inclined to have leg and foot injuries that can affect their ability to walk safely, and their balance may be impaired when they attempt to compensate for their other health conditions. Our knowledgeable, friendly staff are aware of each persons health risks, have a personal concern for each of their residents and are trained to attend to their particular needs.
