Falls are the leading cause of accidental death and non-fatal injury for people over the age of 65. The greying of America is causing these accidents to quickly become a public health concern due to the financial and emotional costs to individuals and their families. The good news is up to 50% of falls can be prevented through education and effort.

This 70-page book discusses situations that increase the risk of a fall and how you can reduce that risk. Some factors can be changed and others must be accepted. The first step a person can do to prevent falls is become aware of things that contribute to instability and then make the necessary change when possible.

Balance is a complicated messenger system and this book offers scientifically-researched concepts in an easy to understand manner. You will gain a better understanding of what may be causing you to lose your balance, how you can prevent falls and where to go for help.

The index includes a "Help, I've Fallen and I CAN Get Up" demonstration, Fall Risk Medications List, Home Safety Checklist and a Senior Resource Directory.

Written in large print, this is a must read for older adults, loved ones, family members, caregivers, staff members, program planners, activity directors, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and doctors.

Knowledge is empowering. Take responsibility for your well-being and learn how to prevent falls and remain independent.
