Falls can result in hospitalization institutionalization

We know that when an older adult falls they're likely to experience an injury, that injury can be so significant, it can result in hospitalization institutionalization. For example, needing long-term care in a nursing home or even something as significant as the emotional consequences of fall resulting in the fear of falling again.

Each and every one of these things can be particularly disabling for an older adult, it often compromises their quality of life. We know too that an older adult has many contributing factors to this risk of falling from everything, from their medications to their physical health.

Their support system in their home, as well as external support systems, can influence their risk of falling, their home itself may be a risk factor.
