It's the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.
Falls are serious....
Every 13 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall. Every 20 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall-related trauma. Studies show that falls now exceed motor vehicle crashes as the most common cause of injury-related death.
Older individuals who fall generally experience greater functional decline in activities of daily living (ADLs) and in physical and social activities. They are also at greater risk for subsequent institutionalization.
