Staying Independent Checklist
Available in English and French
The Staying Independent Checklist is a tool that can be used by older adults, health care providers or caregivers to assess an adult’s risk for falls. This tool is for older adults living in their own home, as it is not validated for institutional living adults. Users answer "Yes"/"No" to a list of statements and are given a score based on their response. The total score is tallied up and a recommendation is provided depending on how high the individual scores.
