Falls Prevention

One Step Ahead...YOU Can Prevent a Fall

Each year, 1 of every 3 people older than 65 fall. Half of the older adults hospitalized for hip fractures cannot return directly to their homes or live independently after their injury.

In recognition of the devastating effect falls can have on the quality and length of life, Ministry Home Care created a broad prevention campaign. The campaign, titled One Step Ahead…YOU Can Prevent a Fall includes messages to community members, clinical staff, staff working in residential facilities, as well as all of the 5,000 patients served by Ministry Home Care’s agencies each day.
