Elderly Fall Prevention: Spotting the Warning Signs & Risk Factors

Fall prevention is a crucial part of keeping elderly adults healthy and safe. Seniors are already at higher risk of suffering a fall, due to a range of age-related risk factors. When these falls occur, elderly adults face much a higher risk of serious injury. They also face a much lower likelihood of recovery from these injuries. At Visiting Angels, we help address these risks through our Safe & Steady Fall Prevention program. This program teaches seniors, families, and care providers how to make falls less likely by creating a safer home environment.
