Fall Risk & Home Safety Assessments

NEW Safety Assessments Now Offered by PT@acac At Home

Fall Risk Assessments

for adults seeking to test their baseline risk of falling

During the fall risk assessment, our fall risk experts will:

• Conduct various balance challenges progressing in difficulty

• Assess walking and leg strength

• Determine the risk of falling in the near future using established, standardized scoring resources derived from physical therapy research

• Deliver assessment results with specific recommendations for reducing their risk of falls that may cause injury

Fall Risk Assessments can be done at a PT@acac clinic or at patient’s home - $75*

* combine with a Home Safety Assessment scheduled at the same time for $125

* If client is currently being treated by a member of the PT@ACAC team, the home assessment may be covered by their insurance as long as their insurance supports at home visits. Our office can investigate this for us before the visit is scheduled.

After the assessments, if the PT@acac At Home experts recommend follow-up physical therapy, they will help you coordinate a referral from your physician.

Home Safety Assessments

for any adult experiencing or anticipating changes in mobility

We strongly promote “active and safe aging-in-place.”

Goals of this assessment are to:

– AVOID unnecessary moves

– REDUCE caregiver burden

– AVOID unnecessary placements into nursing homes or assisted living facilities

During our home safety assessment, our experts will:

• Evaluate the resident’s mobility

• Evaluate access to all rooms in the home

• Create a room-by-room assessment and document issues

• Identify safe exit strategies from the home

• Analyze the findings and share recommendations for living safely in place, and to make activities of daily living easier
