For anyone who missed our recent Fall Prevention webinar, or would like to watch it again, you can find the interactive video chat session here!

Every year, one out of every three adults age 65 or older falls. Falls among older adults can cause serious injury or disability, and they are the leading cause of injury death among those 65 and older. Many of these falls are caused by lifestyle factors and common hazards in the home.

In this informative webinar, health care professionals and caregivers will learn about the latest fall risk factors and preventative measures to avoid falls. Topics include:

•  How falls impact the health care system

•  Making an accurate Fall Risk Assessment

•  Identifying dangers in the home: Fall prevention room-by-room

•  Fall risk and incontinence: What’s the relationship?

•  Community and educational resources
