Home Safety Assessment - A critical step in our new client assessment is a Home Safety Evaluation. During this process we will evaluate your loved one's home with the goal of identifying and removing potential hazards in order to reduce the probability of a fall. Fall prevention monitoring continues throughout as our caregivers are trained to identify and reduce risks.

Falls Prevention Exercises For Seniors - The people who are at risk of falling are those who present muscle weakness and impaired balance. Our competent, capable and loving caregivers can help clients follow fall prevention exercises, as per PT instructions, that lower the risk of falling by improving strength, balance and endurance.
