Residents are most vulnerable overnight. We’re sharing how to best support them.

In October’s National Fall Huddle, we’ll evaluate the incidence of falls during the evening hours, including what triggers and behaviors are present prior to these fall events. We’ll also provide strategies for mitigating sundowning behaviors and review how environmental factors contribute to fall risk. Additionally, we’ll explore how technology can support staff and residents during the overnight hours—the hours when fall risk peaks, and staffing is reduced.
