Preventing Falls in Older Adults
Each year, millions of elderly, 65 years old and older, sustain a fall. More than one out of four older people fall each year. Because the U.S. population is aging, both the number of falls and the costs to treat fall injuries are expected to rise.
In the fourth webinar of the series, Anna DeJoya, PT, DSc, NCS, at TIRR Memorial Hermann presents on preventing falls in older adults. From this webinar, you will be able to:
- Describe the prevalence of falls among the elderly
- Understand the consequences of falls for the elderly
- Be able to describe risk factors
- Increase your knowledge on intervention strategies and community resources
