Preventing falls is of critical importance when it comes to the health of elderly adults.
Strong Foundations is a comprehensive nursing and physical therapy service from VNSNY that was designed to reduce the risk of falling and fall-related injuries and hospitalizations, as well as to maintain patient safety at home and in the community.
Strong Foundations brings together the expertise of both registered nurses and physical therapists in one multidisciplinary four-part approach that addresses eight medical and physical risk factors for falling. Whether a patient has recently fallen, or just has a fear of falling, every individual gets a plan customized to fit his or her unique needs with clear goals and expectations for treatment.
