In BalanceSM is a dynamic new Fall Prevention program brought to you by UHS Home Care. Accidental falls are a serious problem with older adults. Our goal is to support your independence by reducing the risk of falling and fall-related injuries.

We review your previous fall history, physical and functional abilities and limitations, medication use, as well as your physical environment and medical history.
