Prevent Falls

Avoiding falls is important.

Fall prevention could be the single most important step you take in continuing to live at home as you age.

About one-third of the US population of seniors (those over 65) experience a fall each year.

At age 80, that number rises to roughly 50%.

Falls account for 25% of hospital admissions and approximately 40% of nursing home admissions.

“Being careful” isn’t enough to avoid falling.  Falls should not be considered a “normal” part of aging. Ignoring them, and not telling your children or your doctors won’t aid you in the long run. The goal is to determine WHY the fall happened, and make adjustments to prevent it from happening again.
