Fall Prevention

Did you know that falls are our most common reason for emergency response? Each year, millions of older people—those 65 and older—fall. In fact, more than one out of four older people falls each year, but less than half tell their doctor. 

For older people, a break can be the start of more serious problems, such as a trip to the hospital, injury, or even disability. Falling once doubles your chances of falling again. If you are afraid or at risk of falling, know that you aren't alone and that help is available to you in order to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle!
