The topic we are going to be discussing in this episode is one that is critically important to the safety of our loved ones and that’s Fall Safety. Having a Fall Safety plan is crucial in helping to prevent our aging and elderly loved ones from having a fall.

Did you know that falls are one of the leading causes of injuries in our older population and that every 20 minutes an older adult dies from a fall in the United States per the CDC, that is a grim statistic but it also shows how serious the risks are. For those that suffer an injury after having a fall, they are now at risk for what’s called post-fall syndrome. For too many of our seniors post-fall syndrome can lead them to a dependence on others, a loss of their autonomy, confusion, depression, immobilization, and further restrictions on being able to perform their ADL’s.
