Fall Prevention Program


Falls are the leading cause of fatal injuries and the second leading cause of nonfatal injuries for people over 65.  In  Assisted Living Facilities, 30% of seniors experience at least one fall per year with  40% of the falls resulting in hospital stays are attributable to hip fractures. With an estimated cost of $2.4 billion annually to treat injuries to seniors, injuries due to falls represent 41% of this cost to our health care system.  Affinity Home Health Care has designed a comprehensive fall prevention program to assist patients to reduce falls and maintain their independence at home.

  • Balance Testing
