How design can help reduce and prevent falls in senior communities

Clinical staff and interior designers offer thought leadership on design modification best practices to prevent falls in senior care residences

Seven seniors are projected to die every hour in the U.S. as a result of falls by 2030, according to the CDC. The growing Baby Boomer population over the next few decades, combined with severe staffing shortages, make this grim statistic likely – but not inevitable.

Reversing this projection requires new ideas and collaboration from everyone involved.

Research shows that environmental modification is already among the most effective ways to reduce falls. Focusing on this modality can make an even greater impact on the health of residents in senior care communities and those who support them.

Whether you’re designing a new senior community or remodeling an old one, industry leaders included in this whitepaper offer insight into ways you can use design to reduce falls.
