Falls are the leading cause of injury and hospitalization for trauma — as well as trauma-related death — among older adults.

Topics covered include:

  • Simple and fun balance and strength training
  • The role that vision plays in keeping your balance
  • How medications can contribute to falls
  • What to look for in safe footwear
  • How to eliminate fall hazards in your home
