Every second of every day, an older adult suffers a fall in the U.S. – making falls the number one cause of injury and death from injury among older Americans. In fact, according to the CDC, “One out of every four older adults will fall each year” making this a health concern for the population over 65 years old. About 36 million older adults fall each year and 3 million older adults are treated in emergency care for an injury related to a fall. However, falls are preventable and do not need to be a normal part of aging. You can take steps to reduce your risk of falling.
