Fall Prevention - Professional Caregiver Webinar

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in three older adults over age 65 falls each year, but less than half will bring their accident to the attention of a healthcare provider. As people age they experience natural aging effects,, such as stiff joints, poor eyesight, and decreased muscle strength along with poor balance. Natural aging along with chronic conditions, such as cataracts, arthritis and Parkinson’s disease, can increase the risk of falling. Reducing the risk of falls and accidents is vital in helping to minimize the risk of hospitalization in older adults. According to a study published in the American Journal of Public Health, 20-30% of older adults hospitalized for a fall suffer moderate to severe injuries. That could lead to decreased mobility, loss of independence and increased risk of death. Register for this webinar to learn an overview of the signs that an older adult may be at risk for falling and learn simple and practical solutions on how to reduce the risk of falls in the home.
