Falls Are Serious and Costly
You or your loved one have worked a life time expecting to be able to enjoy you late adult life with little or no unexpected events in later years. The fact is that falls are a real treat to the health of older adults and can seriously reduce their ability to remain independent.
According to the Center for Disease Control here are some of the real facts:
Each year, millions of older people—those 65 and older—fall. In fact, more than one out of four older people falls each year, but less than half tell their doctor. Falling once doubles your chances of falling again.
What You Can Do to Prevent Falls
Falls can be prevented. These are some simple things you can do to keep yourself from falling.
Talk to Your Doctor
Ask your doctor or healthcare provider to evaluate your risk for falling and talk with them about specific things you can do.
Ask your doctor or pharmacist to review your medicines to see if any might make you dizzy or sleepy. This should include prescription medicines and over-the counter medicines.
Ask your doctor or healthcare provider about taking vitamin D supplements.
Since most falls occur on a bathroom you best option is a Fountain of Youth Walk in Tub.
