PLUS, LEARN ABOUT OTHER FALL HAZARDS AT HOME

The biggest threat to an older adult’s independence is a simple slip and fall. Each year, about one in three Americans over age 65 suffers a fall, and nearly 20,000 die from their injuries. Many others are left with a permanent disability that threatens their independence. Unfortunately, taking certain medications can affect balance and depth perception, increasing your chance of falling.

Learn about medications that contribute to falls and how to reduce your risk. Then hear about other common risk factors for home falls, along with practical ways to make your home safer.
