Elderly Fall Prevention


  • Falls are the leading cause of injury deaths among older adults.

  • Nearly half, or 15 of Lancaster Country’s 31 nursing homes are related above average or far above average.

  • Five building blocks of effective community-based fall prevention programs:

    • Education programs for older adults and their caregivers.

    • Progressive exercise programs to improve mobility, strength, and balance of the elderly.

    • Medication review and vision improvement.

    • Environment safety assessment and modification.
