ALWAYS BEST CARE ADDS BALANCE TRACKING SYSTEM FOR SENIORS
Always Best Care Senior Services recently announced the launch of a Balance Tracking & Fall Risk Assessment Program to help keep its clientele safe. The Balance Tracking System will provide an objective, accurate and reliable measure of a client’s postural sway – known as a key indicator of balance ability commonly used in fall risk assessment. Always Best Care will become the first senior care franchisor to introduce the program at this scale and is currently rolling out the program to its franchisees nationwide.
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 3 million elderly people are treated in emergency departments for fall injuries annually, while 800,000 patients are ultimately hospitalized. Always Best Care’s Fall Risk Assessment Program will help prevent those injuries and will categorize a person’s fall risk across a spectrum ranging from low, to moderate, to high. The assessment can be calculated for each individual – regardless of age – but will be especially useful to individuals 60+, where the consequences of a fall are amplified.
The new program is just one way that Always Best Care continues to innovate to provide the best services possible to its clients and partners. Always Best Care is one of the nation’s leading providers of non-medical in-home care and assisted living referral services. The company delivers its services through an international network of more than 200 independently owned and operated franchise territories throughout the United States and Canada.
