Fall Prevention

One in three adults age 65 and older falls each year, and the likelihood of falling increases with advancing age.

Falls among older adults can lead to hip fractures, head traumas, and can even increase the risk of early death. Fortunately, falls are a health problem that is largely preventable.

A person can significantly reduce their risk of falling by:

  • Taking care of their health through exercise, medication review and management and regular vision exams
  • Slowing down and taking extra precautions
  • Making small changes to the home
