Term Description

The Stay Independent is a self-assessment used to evaluate fall risks. The Stay Independent assessment aims to increase knowledge about fall risk and measure risk levels including history of previous falls, steadiness, fear of falling, muscle weakness, incontinence, loss of sensation, medications, and feeling depressed. In addition, the Stay Independent recommends follow up assessments for at risk individuals. [PMID: 22152267] The score is calculated by adding together the number of points for each question answered “yes” giving a scale of 0 to 14. If the score totals 4 or more, the individual may be at a risk for falling [CDC: steadi].
