At Tapestry Senior Living, we understand the importance of fall prevention for seniors, as falls can lead to severe injuries, decreased independence, and a decline in overall quality of life. In this blog, we will discuss two primary components of our fall prevention approach: physical fitness programs and maintaining a safe and supportive living environment.
Physical Fitness Programs One of the most effective ways to prevent falls in seniors is by maintaining and improving physical strength, balance, and flexibility. We offer a variety of fitness programs and activities tailored to the unique needs and abilities of our residents. From group exercise classes and walking clubs to personalized fitness plans, our goal is to promote overall physical health and reduce fall risks associated with age-related physical decline. Physical and occupational therapies are available through an established partnership with a specialized service.
Safe and Supportive Living Environment A well-designed living environment plays a crucial role in fall prevention. Tapestry Senior Living communities are designed with seniors’ safety in mind, featuring well-lit, clutter-free spaces with easily accessible handrails and grab bars. Our maintenance team regularly inspects and addresses any potential hazards, ensuring that our communities remain safe and secure.
