Fall Prevention Resources
Advice and Help : Fall Prevention Resources
Falls are the leading cause of death by injury in our elder population. The CDC estimates that one out of three adults over 65 falls each year. Sadly, falls are also preventable to a certain degree. A broken bone, particularly a hip or pelvis, can often cause an irreversible decline in our older population. A lot of the prevention has to do with common sense - yet it is amazing that even in some of the most enlightened establishments that principle is ignored. No one should be allowed to move into a senior care unit until the place has been fall-proofed.
