THHP Episode 012: Geriatric Fall Prevention w/ Lauren Kakish RN-BSN

In Episode 012 of The Household Health Podcast, I interview fellow Nurse Practitioner student and Registered Nurse, Lauren Kakish. Geriatric falls have some very interesting/concerning statistics and is a topic that should be discussed carefully with any member of the household that falls within this population. In the interview we discuss, the importance of the aging adult keeping their autonomy, medications alone or when used together could increase the risk of falling, environmental hazards in the home, tips for preventing falls in the bathroom, sensory changes that occur as we age, strategies to ensure independence is a priority when having this discussion with a family member and much more!
