Fall Prevention in Older Adults
Falls are the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries among adults who are 65 years old or older. They can cause significant injuries such as head trauma and broken bones and can lead to serious consequences and even death. Seniors are at particularly high risk not only to experience a fall, but also to sustain a serious injury or experience significant complications.
