Senior Living Fall Prevention

In order to guarantee their continued success, senior living facilities need to focus on fall prevention. Heron Point’s Fall Prevention System allows assisted living facilities to preemptively and continuously detect residents who are likely to fall. As opposed to most fall-related systems, our system doesn’t detect falls - it stops them from happening in the first place.
