Call before you fall, Dr. Grab Bar says
Falls present a serious health hazard for older adults.
In fact, falls are the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries in adults age 65 and older, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. In 2016, 29,668 older adults died because of falls; one in four adults aged 65 and older reported falling each year. Fall-related injuries resulted in 3 million emergency room visits and the rate of falls increased substantially in the last decade.
Most falls are preventable, health officials say. One of the best ways to prevent falls is to install grab bars in the bathroom and other areas. In addition to causing serious injuries, falls often lead to a loss of independence in older adults.
