Fall Prevention

Falls are a leading cause of injury among older adults. Here are some tips for fall prevention: *Keep moving – activities such as walking, water workouts or tai chi can reduce the risk of falls by improving strength, balance, coordination and flexibility. *Wear sensible shoes – properly fitting, sturdy, flat shoes with nonskid soles help with balance and stability. *Make an appointment with your health care provider or pharmacist – they may want to talk about your medications and health conditions if you’ve had falls previously. Preventing falls reduces injuries and may help you stay in your home longer.
