1 in 3 older adults (65+) will experience a fall each year.
Falls-related injuries are a significant concern among aging populations. Falls prevention programs help seniors to modify their environments to prevent risks for falls and increase their mobility, balance and strength to lower their likelihood of experiencing an injury.
Falls are costly—in dollars and in quality of life. However, you can reduce your risk of falling. Through practical lifestyle adjustments, evidence-based programs, and community partnerships, the number of falls among seniors can be reduced substantially.
