Falls are the leading cause of injury among older adults. The statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are staggering: More than 16,000 adults aged 65 and older die each year from injuries related to falls; almost 2 million others are treated in emergency departments for nonfatal injuries from falls, and more than a fourth of these patients are hospitalized. Many patients who fall often suffer hip fractures or other physical trauma and never return to their pre‐fall level of function.
Falls are not just the result of getting older. Many falls can be prevented. Seniors who stay educated on fall prevention may significantly reduce their risk of taking a spill and landing in the hospital.
About half of falls occur at home. Follow these suggestions to make your home safer:
