Why Falls Prevention?

Why is Falls Prevention Important?

Falls are a major threat to the health and independence of older adults aged 60 and older, being the leading cause of injury deaths and nonfatal injuries. Nearly one-third of older adults experience a fall, and about one out of ten falls among older adults result in a serious injury, such as a hip fracture or head injury, that requires hospitalization. In addition to the physical and emotional pain, many people need to spend at least a year recovering in a long-term care facility. Some never return to their homes.

The good news is falls can be prevented!

The opportunity to help reduce falls among older adults has never been better.
With some minor adjustments and through a holistic approach, FallsFree4Life can help you or your loved ones make the changes necessary to live a strong, independent, and balanced life.
