Fall Prevention in 2021

Dementia and fall experts weigh in

With COVID-19 vaccinations rolling out and providing renewed hope for all, it's crucial to maintain the critical care and perseverance that helped us through 2020 to keep our residents healthy and safe in the new year. Watch as we discuss fall prevention planning as we kick off our 2021 National Fall Huddle Webinar Series. 

This month we had special guest, Melissa Dillon, Director of Garden House at Merrill Gardens, who leads memory care for all Merrill Gardens communities across the country. Melissa shares how she reduces falls by applying learnings from fall video review in Merrill Gardens SafelyYou communities to those communities that still have unwitnessed falls in the bedroom.

We reviewed our top lessons learned from last year, and as always, conducted two new live fall huddles to share tips for fall prevention to apply to your communities.
