Workshop/Fall Prevention – We Are Not Made of Rubber

We are not made of rubber. The hard truth is that when we fall, we won’t bounce right back up. According to the World Health Organization, 28-35% of people over the age of 65 will fall each year. Falls are responsible for 10-15% of visits to the emergency department and for more than 50% of injury-related hospitalizations in people over the age of 65.A fall in your senior years can often result in hip fractures, traumatic brain injuries or broken arms. These all cause serious, negative impacts to the body.   After a fall, most seniors may experience:

 – A decrease in independence

 – Confusion

 – Depression

 – A loss of mobility
