Ask an Expert... about Falls Prevention

Ask an Expert... about Falls Prevention The risk of a fall dramatically increases at 40 years of age. A fall is not only painful but can cause a long recovery process and potentially a loss of independence. People fall because their vision has changed or they are not wearing their glasses, medication doses are not followed, inactivity and poor balance, not wearing the correct footwear for the situation and the home environment is unsafe. The panel of Experts will give you tips on how to prevent a fall. You will also be given a booklet of exercises you can do at home to increase your strength and balance. You can help prevent a fall by taking action and learning more.
