In our January National Fall Huddle we’ll examine ways to improve and advance critical fall management programs while faced with resource limitations. We’ll explore free tools that help staff be more efficient and effective, both elevating quality of care and easing staff burden. And we’ll review case studies, providing fall prevention best practices you can implement immediately to make an impact in your communities and facilities.
We know our partners in the industry need our support, as staffing and budgets continue to be challenges. So, we’ve extended the deadline for applying for a SafelyYou grant, providing more opportunity for skilled nursing facilities and assisted living and memory care communities to get coverage for the cost of implementing SafelyYou’s first-of-its-kind fall management program.
The fall experts at SafelyYou have partnered with the product experts at Direct Supply to bring you The Essential Guide to Mobility Aids: From Maximizing Function to Reducing Fall Risk. It includes all the details of top mobility aids, so you can help residents make the most of walkers, wheelchairs, and canes—while using them safely to help prevent falls.
