Our Michigan assisted living injury attorney represent resident and their families for injuries suffered while in an assisted living environment. A common injury among assisted living residents is fall injuries.
Every assisted living resident has different functional abilities, so their risks of falling vary considerably. However, many assisted living residents suffer from cognitive impairment, which is one of the main contributions of why an elderly person falls. According to a survey by the National Center for Assisted Living, nearly 52 percent of all assisted living residents had some degree of cognitive impairment, which leads to the risk of falling.
Exercise Training To Help Prevent Falls Among Assisted Living Residents
There are many different exercise techniques and training that an assisted living patient can do to prevent falling. These different programs should be offered by the assisted living home in which they live. These exercise trainings include:
- Strength Training which helps build muscle
- Balance Training which helps reduce fears of falling
- Targeting Exercise identifies specific impairments and creates an exercise to help that individual person
- Dynamic Balance Training which involves slow movement of nerves that control muscles
