Simple Tips for Fall Prevention

One of the biggest concerns with aging can be the risk of falling. Research has shown there are many steps you can take to avoid slips, trips and falls. These include regular check-ups with your physician, keeping active, wearing appropriate shoes and removing obstacles in your home. Many individuals also benefit by getting assistance with daily living. At Lake Park we offer various levels of care to provide additional assistance if needed.

For example, at Lake Park’s Assisted Living Center, we offer modern bathrooms with barrier-free showers as well as the Philips Lifeline emergency response system and pendant in each room to reduce the risk of falls. Based on the level of care needed, we can offer assistance with all daily tasks through our specially-trained, licensed professionals. In our Skilled Nursing and Assisted Living centers, safety is one of our number one priorities. Another way to avoid slips, trips and falls is through regular activity and exercise. At our Active Living Center with Lake View Fitness you can enjoy a wide range of activities including strength training and yoga.
