Falls are the leading cause of unintentional injury deaths for people over age 65, and a leading reason for emergency room visits in the United States each year. Falls can cause brain injuries, hip fractures and other devastating consequences. Many falls could be avoided through simple preventative measures.

Topics covered include: Concussions, Fear of Falling, Home and Community Safety, Talking With Your Physician, Nutrition, Exercise, Vision, and Medications.
