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.
