Falls

Falls are the leading cause of accidental death in people over the age of 65 years.  Approximately 33% of healthy individuals over the age of 65 fall annually.  Falls may result in serious fractures and soft tissue injuries.  Prolonged floor contact may lead to dehydration, pressure sores, hypothermia, pneumonia and increased fear of falls.  Fear of falls may further lead to anxiety, depression, decreased community ambulation, and increased social isolation.

Falls may be prevented by; exercise and conditioning to increase strength and mobility, exercises to improve balance strategies, use of a cane or walker for balance, proper eyewear to improve vision, adjustments in medications that cause dizziness, routine medical check-ups, and correction of diseases that could impair balance such as hypertension.
