Fall Risk Management – GAITWAY™
The goal of the GAITWAY™ Fall Risk Management program is to minimize the risk of falls in our senior population through an approach that will empower you and your loved ones to understand fall risk, what can increase risk and what can be done to improve strength and balance.
During the initial home visit assessment, ComForCare completes the GAITWAY™ Fall Risk Assessment screening tool. Our trained clinician will survey the living space, make suggestions to improve safety with devices and equipment such as handrails and evaluate motor skills and balance of your loved one.
Partnering with you and your loved ones, The Stay Independent Assessment, an evidence based self-assessment tool, is completed to screen and track risk factors on a regular basis.
Our caregivers are educated in fall risk factors and what they can do to manage risk.
Whether your loved one needs assistance only a few hours a week or around-the-clock, our team is happy to help! Call (416) 637-7667 to learn more about the transition care services offered through ComForCare Home Care (Richmond Hill - Markham, ON).
