Fall Awareness and Prevention

The National Council on Aging says, “falls are not a normal part of aging”.  However, statistics show that more than one-third of Americans over the age of 65 suffer a fall at some time or other.  There are many things that can contribute to falls, including the medication your may need to take, as ordered by your doctor.  But there are ways to reduce your chances of it happening to you.
