The Caregiver Journey: Seven Home Safety Tips to Prevent Falls For Your Loved One

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 36 million falls are reported among older adults each year in the United States, with 3 million of those resulting in a visit to the emergency department.

Yet falls do not need to be a given that comes along with aging. In this webinar, Carallel and senior care expert and innovator Andrea Cohen, share simple ways to assess your loved one’s fall risk at home and seven practical tips you can use today to reduce the risk of your loved one falling at home.

We need to understand what the risk factors are and it’s also really important to understand how the person you’re concerned about goes through their day.
