Falls Prevention Conversation Guide
Working with the National Council on Aging, this guide focuses on how to help older adults prevent falls. Many caregivers may not realize that 1 in 4 adults over the age of 65 falls every year, injuring themselves and often exacerbating other conditions of aging. Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for older Americans; they are costly—in dollars and in quality of life.
