We are thrilled to announce that we have begun deployment for our research study! We have 12 facilities on board to participate in our expanded study and are actively recruiting more. In our previous pilot study, we were able to reduce the fall rate by 80% in three months at WindChime of Marin. This research study will test if we can replicate those results in a larger cohort.
We are excited to continue our project and think our program can reduce the fall rate in the dementia population. Falls can be incredibly detrimental to health and well-being as injury can increase level of decline while greatly decreasing quality of life and level of function for residents.
We are committed to improving dementia care for our community and are thankful to all those who have agreed to participate and help on us on this journey!
