Fall Prevention –¬†According to the National Council on Aging (NCOA), the leading cause of injuries to older adults, both non-fatal and fatal, is falls. Falls threaten not only the safety of seniors but also a senior’s independence. Falls are also the source of immense personal and economic costs.

However, falls are not inevitable for seniors. Through practical adjustments to one’s lifestyle , “evidence-based falls prevention programs,” and partnerships in the community, the number of falls among older adults may be dramatically reduced.
