Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve answered the most common questions our training experts often get asked regarding our Fall Prevention training. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

How to prevent falls in the elderly?

Putting general measures in place and ensuring your staff are trained with the correct knowledge are important to preventing falls for the elderly in your care home or nursing home.

It’s best to assess each person’s risk of falling in order to know what measures should be taken. For instance, you may need to consider if they have a weakness in their bones and therefore, may fall easier or break a bone if they fall. Another factor to consider is whether they struggle to see or hear. If they do, you may want to ensure they get their sight or hearing tested regularly. By identifying the risk factors, a personalised fall care plan can be created and actioned.

Our Falls Prevention Awareness training course will teach your staff how to prevent falls and how to identify risks. 

Why fall prevention is important? Fall prevention is important to maintain health, well-being and independence among the elderly. If it isn’t monitored properly and a fall occurs, it can injure, break bones, and even cause trauma for the older person.
What is fall prevention? Fall prevention is when actions are taken to help prevent accidental falls suffered by vulnerable people such as the elderly.
