Predict and Prevent Falls: It’s Easier Than You Think

Start Date:4/22/2021

Start Time:1:00 PM EDT

Duration:60 minutes



Falls are a common and painful problem in senior living. A resident falling often triggers a downward spiral that critically impacts health and wellness, and even length of stay at your community. Reducing fall risk based on accurate information, not guesswork, can make all the difference. Yet most fall management technologies only help you respond after a fall has happened, when it’s already too late. Fall management strategies need to evolve to keep falls from happening in the first place. What if you could know when a crisis is about to happen? When caregivers have the insights needed to make timely interventions, fall prevention becomes a reality. In this webinar, community leaders and rehabilitation experts will use case studies to identify fall management best practices and review proven strategies to reduce falls.

Attendees of this webinar will be able to:
  • Learn strategies to evaluate fall detection and fall response times in their communities
  • Understand how passive technology can be used to predict fall risk
  • Recognize proactive opportunities to modify care plans and introduce therapeutic exercise to reduce falls
  • Discover how early intervention and proactive care can reduce – and even prevent – falls in your community
