Home may be where the heart is, but it can be a dangerous place for older adults.
Every year, one in four older adults in the US fall and 20% of those falls result in significant injury that can trigger a descending spiral of dependence.
Join us so that you can learn to identify some common home hazards and about some dangers many people don’t recognize - like medication management, isolation, and inadvertent misuse of prescribed and over-the-counter medications, supplements and alcohol. All of these factors can affect a person’s ability to live independently.
You will learn what you can do to reduce your chances of falling.
