Check for Safety and What You Can Do To Prevent Falls are from the CDC Website. Theoretically, you can order them from the site.  They have always been out of stock when we have tried, so we printed the short version in house and have sent the larger "What you can do to prevent falls" to the printer.  Staff would use one or the other depending on situation.

The word document 'home safety checklist' was developed by the Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant that NWSDS has on staff that does assessments for the Otago program. They have initial buy-in from staff to use it as every home visit and then use 1 of the other pdf handouts as support during the discussion.  

TBD - NWSDS is also working on a colored picture sheet of common durable medical equipment supplies to use as a visual aid when meeting with consumers.  They are hoping that it will help them understand "transfer bath bench" etc., and lead to greater follow up to obtain aids or ask MD for PT referral, etc.
