Two nurses are talking about the number of patients that are admitted to the hospital each week due to falls in the home. They decide to partner up with the local senior center to design a community program aimed at reducing falls in the senior population. Which of the following interventions would likely be most effective?
1)Create printed material that the seniors can take home and use to assess their home.
2)Train volunteers to go into the homes of seniors at high risk for falls to assess their homes and help improve the home environment.
3)Provide an exercise program in the community center to increase agility and balance.
4)Pair up seniors at high risk with a volunteer caretaker who can help with chores and run errands.
