Preventing Falls Before They Happen
Preventing falls from happening in the first place is the right place to start!
One-in-three Americans over the age of 65 will fall in their own home each year.In 2003 alone, over 2,500,000 older adults were treated at emergency rooms around the country for non-fatal falls. Of these, nearly one-third or 734,000 were hospitalized following their fall.
Falling is serious business, especially among the elderly. Falling can lead to medical conditions such as infection, cardiovascular disorder, chronic ailment, Parkinson disorder and dementia.
