The idea of total fall prevention is a little far-fetched. No one can prevent all slip & falls. However, if you are a caregiver, you can help reduce falls for seniors! The role of caregiving is often filled by a family member, spouse, or service provider. If you fit into any of these categories, then you know all too well that it can be both rewarding and exhausting.
You can actively protect the ones you care for by preventing falls. There is, however, a fine line between being helpful and enabling. The first step in proactive fall reduction is often overlooked.
