Fall-Risk

 

Falls are a significant public health problem that affects one in three older adults every year. Falls have devastating personal costs for older adults and their family. Falls often lead to decreased functioning, debilitating fear, which can limit activities-- and even death. Many people think falls are an inevitable part of aging, but research shows that falls can be reduced by 30 – 40 percent with appropriate fall-risk assessment, home modifications, and exercise.
