Each year, millions of elderly people aged 65 and older, are experiencing a fall. Statistics show that one out of four older people will fall each year. However, most people fail to tell their primary care physicians. Not everyone is aware that when you fall once, your chances double of experiencing a fall again.
Aside from lacerations, minor injuries and emergency room visits, falls can be severe enough to result in a fatality. Death rates in the United States due to falls are increasing astronomically. Falls can make it a challenge to resume your regular life activities and function on your own.
It is important to protect yourself against falls. Some simple steps you can take are consulting with your doctor, appropriate strength and balance exercises, an eye exam and making your home safer.
