1 in 3 adults older than 65 fall every year in the U.S.

Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall; every 19 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall.

Falls are the leading cause of fatal injury and the most common cause of nonfatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults.

Falls severely impact your quality of life. A growing number of older adults fear falling and, as a result, limit their activities. This can result in further physical decline, depression, social isolation, and feelings of helplessness.

Watch to find out what are signs of balance issues, common fall risks, ideas for fall prevention, and exercises to help you with your balance.
