Did you know that about 1 out of 10 falls among older adults result in a serious injury, such as hip fracture or head trauma that requires hospitalization? Falls can be a major threat to your health and independence. Each year in the United States, nearly one-third of older adults experience a fall.
Our Stand Strong Program is designed to decrease falls and increase your independence. Our focus is to improve mobility, strength and balance that are taught by a trained clinician.
Our Stand Strong Program includes:
- Patient education
- Medication review
- Home safety assessment and home modification
- Exercises that improve mobility, strength and balance
- Individualized care plan
Research has shown that fall prevention programs for high-risk older adults can prevent or decrease hospitalization, minimize the risk of recurrent falls and increase functional outcomes. Continua Home Health is dedicated to managing potential fall risks, promoting independence and improving our patient’s quality of life.
