How to Reduce Fall Risk

ComForCare encourages clients and families to take proactive steps to reduce at-home fall risks. Talking with your primary care physician is a crucial first step. They can assess common risk factors that can increase your chances of falling, such as underlying medical conditions, medications you take, and even your vision and footwear. Additionally, your doctor can evaluate your strength and balance abilities, as well as your blood pressure, to identify any potential issues that might contribute to a fall.

We’ll work hard to identify the reasons behind the fall, considering all the contributing factors. With this information, we then work with you and your healthcare provider to develop the right plan to keep you safe and independent at home.
