Fall Prevention

Have you fallen recently? Have you or your loved one fallen in the last six months? Were you injured as a result of your fall? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,
falling once doubles your chances for falling again. The VNA Fall Prevention Program is for those individuals with a history of falling and will help prevent further injuries or hospitalization.

The VNA Fall Prevention Program:

  • Helps avoid rehospitalization
  • Is covered by Medicare for those who qualify
  • Promotes aging safely at home
  • Identifies possible risk factors

Every year, one in four Americans over the age of 65 will fall. For older adults, patients recovering from a surgery or individuals diagnosed with a chronic disease, falling can be a serious risk to their health.

Keeping you safe at home.

Our fall prevention program was designed with the goal of keeping patients safe in their homes. Falling is often the byproduct of an underlying reason, and our fall prevention program will identify those reasons and offer guidance on how to avoid falls in the future.

Common reasons for falling include:

  • Side effects from medications
  • Home environment
  • Diagnosis of a chronic illness
  • Recovering from recent surgery

Is your home safe? Download the VNA Fall Prevention Booklet as a guide to help create a safer home environment for you or your loved one.
