Webinar Overview:

Aging in place has numerous benefits for older adults, including maintaining independence; reducing stress and depression; reducing risk of bacterial and viral infections; and significant cost savings. However, older adults often need to modify their homes to make them safer and more accessible. Among adults 65+, falls are the leading cause of injury-related deaths (CDC), non-fatal injuries, and hospital admissions for trauma.

Learning Objectives:

  • The impact of falls on the health care system
  • Fall risk assessment
  • Fall prevention room by room
  • Incontinence and falls
  • Community resources
