Take Steps to Prevent Falls


Falls are Preventable!

The vestibular system deteriorates as we age, and as a result many older people begin to feel unsteady.  Dizziness is a common symptom affecting about 30% of adults over the age of 65 and 1/3 of adults over age 65 fall each year.  Falls can take a serious toll on seniors health, quality of life and independence.  However, falls are NOT a normal part of aging and are preventable!

More information:

The first week of Fall each year is Falls Prevention Awareness Week with the goal of raising awareness about how to prevent falls among older adults.
