Mobility Aids Increase Fall Risk


It’s not uncommon for residents who live in senior living communities to feel unsteady on their feet, so they use mobility aids, such as canes, walkers and wheelchairs. However, it is important to get a suitable device and use it correctly. Otherwise instead of providing help, the device can hinder movements and jeopardize a resident’s safety.

It’s important for a care team to meet on a regular basis for a “fall huddle” because discussing risks, such as mobility aids, is the key to reducing repeat falls and improving the quality of care.

To help you perfect your huddles, SafelyYou is hosting an in-depth “National Fall Huddle” webinar to examine how mobility aids play a role in increased fall risk. Please join us for this free educational session followed by a collaborative panel review of a customer case study, a current challenging fall case submitted by an attendee, and a Q&A session.

  • Get actionable advice on how to make an existing fall huddle program more efficient
  • Learn how to best inspire your team to improve your fall huddle practices
  • Get firsthand examples of how other communities have addressed challenging fall cases to reduce repeat falls
