Falling is the most common way for a senior citizen to lose their independence.
See our infographic for shocking facts about the frequency and seriousness of falling.
But remember, falling, while common, is not an inevitable part of aging.
At the Regency Nursing and Rehabilitation Centers, we strategize ways to help our residents lower their risk of falling. In addition to assessing for fall risk, we:
- Encourage our residents to participate in appropriate exercises to increase their strength and improve their balance.
- Review medications prescribed to seniors with an eye toward reducing their fall risk.
- Ensure our residents have annual eye exams, and always wear glasses with a current prescription.
- Maintain a well lit, clutter-free environment that offers easy access to frequently-used objects.
Remember, falls are dangerous but avoidable. Taking the time to address fall risks will increase both the length and quality of a senior’s life.
At Regency, our 25 years of excellent care have led to us being awarded a Best Nursing Homes award by US News & World Today, a 5-Star rating by USA Today, and an A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau, among many other awards.
