One-third of all people over the age of 65 and half of all seniors over the age of 80 fall every year, resulting in serious and debilitating injuries. The HCR Falls Prevention/Intervention Program can dramatically reduce your risk of falling and subsequent injury.
Led by APTA Board Certified Geriatric Certified Specialists, HCR’s multidisciplinary team assesses a patient’s falls risk using validated, evidence-based assessment tools. After a comprehensive examination, HCR's multidisciplinary team works with the patient's physician to reduce a patient's unique potential to fall by developing a personalized plan to reduce risks and to improve balance and strengthen mobility.
If you are referred to HCR because of a recent fall, our clinical team will assist your physician in determining the cause of the fall. HCR then will recommend safety equipment and environmental modifications to reduce your risk of falls, so you can remain safely at home.
"It would be very remiss of me to not write and thank you from the bottom of my heart for the excellent care your nurses bestowed. They were absolutely wonderful in every sense of the word. Their cheerful smiles (must be a job requirement!), caring ways, and expertise helped to make a painful experience more bearable…Thank you again for all you did this summer, and for all you continue to do for others each and every day of the year. You truly do make a difference. We know because we were on the receiving end."
