Fall prevention resources: older adults

Falls are a serious concern for adults over the age of 65. Each year, one in three older adults experiences a fall, with nearly half of all injuries occurring in the home. The good news is that falls are predicable and thus, preventable. This collection of evidence-based information is designed for older adults and their caregivers to take control of their health and wellbeing by reducing their risk for falls. The resources in this collection include easy-to-understand information on fall prevention in the form of tip sheets, guidelines, and videos.
