PERRY COUNTY – Unintentional falls are a threat to your life, independence and health, especially if you are 65 and older.
Every 18 seconds, an older adult is treated in an emergency department for a fall and every 35 minutes someone in this population dies as a result of their injuries.
Falls are the leading cause of injury deaths among adults age 65 and older and according to the CDC, one in three older adults fall each year. Older adults are hospitalized for fall-related injuries five times more often than they are for injuries from other causes.
