Falls Prevention Awareness Month

Falls Prevention Awareness Month

During the month of September, the Chronic Care Coordinators, whom are Registered Nurses, have been educating patients about the importance of fall prevention awareness. The CCCs touch base on how falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries in seniors.

We want to ensure your patients’ safety and try to prevent any falls. Falls can threaten the safety and independence of the patient’s well being, which generates enormous economic and personal costs.

Did you know that a growing number of older adults fear falling and as a result, limit their physical activities and social engagements? This isolation from physical decline can result in depression, antisocial behavior and feelings of helplessness. Wellbox is dedicated to positively impacting your patient’s life and our goal is to decrease the number of falls in your older patient population.
