Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for older Americans. 1/3 of the population over 65 falls each year and falls account for 25% of all hospital admissions and 40% of all nursing home admissions. Falls threaten seniors’ safety and independence and generate enormous economic and personal costs. Through lifestyle adjustments and falls prevention programs the number of falls among seniors can be substantially reduced.
