Fall Prevention Tips


Each year, millions of adults ages 65 and older fall. People with disabilities are also at high risk.

Falls can cause moderate to severe injuries, such as hip fractures and head traumas, and can increase the risk of early death.

Fortunately, falls are preventable!

Our EvergreenHealth Fall Prevention workshop looks at how you can prevent falls.
