Falls Reduction Programming
According to the Centers for Disease Control and prevention (CDC), each year, millions of older people—those 65 and older—fall. In fact, more than one out of four older people falls each year, but less than half tell their doctor. Falling once doubles your chances of falling again. One out of five falls results in serious injury or death.
You have the power to prevent a fall!
Developed in New Zealand and adopted by the CDC, The Otago is an evidence based program consisting of series of 17 strength and balance exercises that reduces falls between 35 and 40% for frail older adults. Lean more about it here and here. Trained in Otago implementation, we utilize these tenants to guide our fitness program.
Developed by the CDC, STEADI stands for Stopping Elderly Accidents, Death & Injuries. It is a falls prevention initiative which seeks to identify risk factors and reduce them as able. We utilize this guidance to inform our home modification recommendations and fitness program implementation.
