“I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!” That cry has become familiar to all. But it becomes frightening when it’s not just a TV commercial – and it really happens in our homes. Falls are the leading cause of nonfatal – and fatal – injuries among older Americans, according to the National Council on Aging. Primary causes of falling include balance and gait issues, age-related muscle loss, certain medications, sudden drop in blood pressure, visual impairment, and home hazards. Elton Bordenave, PhD, of A.T. Still University, will discuss how you can prevent falls.
