Fall Prevention

1 out of 3 seniors will fall this year….but not if we can help it. Every 15 seconds an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall. Falls can result in fractures, hospitalizations, and can cause some individuals to lose their independence. Even worse, every 29 minutes an older person dies from a fall.
