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.
