Community Fall Reduction

Eskaton and Dignity Health entered into a partnership and piloted a fall prevention program for nearly 100 community-dwelling older adults. The program included access to care coordination services, an in-home fall risk assessment, and bi-weekly balance classes. The program measured fall-risk, fear of falling, lower-body strength, flexibility and balance at pre and post-assessments to validate the program. Results showed significant reductions in fall risk and fear of falling and enhancements in quality of life.
