Fall Prevention

Unfortunately falls are the leading cause of fatal injuries and the most common cause of non-fatal trauma related hospital admissions among seniors. The financial expense for older adult falls is estimated to increase as our population ages and could reach $67.7 billion by 2020. An alarming static is that roughly every 13 seconds an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall and sadly every 20 minutes an older adult dies from a preventable injury. 

 

 

  • Do you feel unsteady when standing or walking?
  • Do you worry about falling? 
  • Could your health conditions cause a fall?

If you answered "yes" to any of these key screening questions,

you are considered to be at an increased risk of falling.
