Watch Your Step

Fall prevention is a priority at all senior living facilities and Fellowship Square is no different. We invest an enormous amount of time and resources to ensure Fellowship House residents have safe passage in and around the grounds of the property, throughout the common areas and in their individual apartments. We conduct annual educational programming around fall prevention for residents to understand the factors that lead to falls and why falls can trigger other serious declines in their health and well-being.

In an article published by McKnight’s Senior Living, it’s recognized that falls are a leading source of rising insurance costs for property owners – and the best way to drive down costs is to prevent the falls in the first place!

Our property staff are diligent in their efforts to monitor the property, inspect areas regularly and clear up any hazards that might lead to someone tripping or falling. In addition, we provide numerous educational programs that highlight the best foods to eat to maintain healthy brains and bones. On any given day at Fellowship House, you will see residents practicing Tai-Chi and other low-impact exercises that help to strengthen their core muscles and improve their balance.

Our success in preventing falls has a lot to do with the cooperation and communication among the residents, their families and our staff. But our success is also because of many community partners and volunteers that help us deliver the important programs and activities that help residents stay healthy. We are grateful for so many that support our mission and our goal of supporting seniors. We wouldn’t be where we are today without you. Thank you.
In gratitude,

Christy ZeitzCEO
