Agewell Programs Build Falls Prevention Skills

Falls are a major concern for older adults. A fall can cause serious injuries requiring costly medical treatment. They can impact a person's quality of life and sometimes, they are even fatal. While falls can be common among older adults - one in three older adults falls each year - they are also largely preventable! By learning to identify and correct the factors that put you at risk for a fall, you can take control and greatly reduce your concerns, fear, and chances of experiencing a fall.
