In-Home Fall Risk Assessment
Everyday we see patients in the clinic for injuries related to a fall. Most of these falls happen in the comfort of your own home. 1 in 4 adults aged 65 or older will fall each year. To counter these falls, we have developed a plan to prevent them. Our group of Doctors of Physical Therapy are well trained in recognizing fall risks and coming up with simple plans to decrease this risk. We do this all in the comfort of your own home.
What does the In-Home Assessment Entail?
We come to your home and gather a detailed medical history, falls history, and perform a balance assessment.
We evaluate your home set up to identify any potential fall risks. We may extend this to your garage, driveway, yard etc.
We compile all of this data and provide you with a summary of your balance, home set up, and give you an overall measure of how at risk of falling you are. We then provide simple solutions to decrease your risk of falls, improve your balance, and home modifications if needed.
