Fall Risk Care Program
for Auburn and Montgomery, AL Seniors

Would you like to know more about preventing senior falls, either for yourself or an elderly loved one?

Caring for our beloved seniors involves ensuring their health and safety, especially when it comes to preventing falls. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) points to falls being a major cause of injury and hospitalization among Americans aged 65 and older. Falls not only affect physical health (orthopedic fractures, deep bruises, etc.) but can also significantly impact a senior’s overall quality of life. In the state of Alabama, strict policies mandate 24/7 care for seniors residing at independent and assisted living facilities who are at risk of falling.
