See how informed room design reduces fall risk

New ideas to increase inclusion and reduce fall risk


Falls are the number one reason families choose senior living. And informed room design is fall prevention. That’s why SafelyYou is committed to helping communities create living spaces that support understanding and prevention of falls. In April’s National Fall Huddle, we’re partnering with Direct Supply to review furniture, lighting, and layout choices to increase safety and reduce fall risk. We’ll explore the best arrangements for both single and double occupancy rooms—as well as recommendations for new construction—to optimize for mobility, accessibility, and transfers. We’ll examine different types of furniture and lighting and what to consider with each. And we’ll provide guidance on the conversation to have with families before move-in to help prevent potential fall risks from becoming part of the resident’s new space. This information will be valuable throughout a resident’s stay, to reassess for creating a safe environment when there’s a change of condition. We’ll also review case studies, and our expert panel will take your questions.

Webinar Learning Objectives

  • Review different room layouts that optimize for mobility, accessibility, and transfers while reducing fall risk
