Caring for Seniors in Greater Auburn, NH: Fall Prevention Seminars

Fall Prevention Seminars to Help Make Caring for Seniors Safer in Auburn, Manchester, Candia, and Surrounding Areas

Falls are the second leading cause of accidental death in America. The older adult population accounts for 75 percent of falls that result in accidental death. One third of the older adults who experience a fall that results in a hip fracture and are hospitalized will die within a year. Falls not only affect the quality of life of the individual, but also influence caring for seniors and family. Health care costs for falls and rehabilitation average $70 billion a year! Even if the fall does not result in hospitalization, fear of falling becomes a major factor in how seniors live their daily lives. Fear of falling often leads to inactivity and loss of confidence. This, in turn, produces a cycle of fear, loss of self-confidence, and inactivity, thereby decreasing the quality of life and increasing the risk of falls.

How Do We Prevent Falls from Happening?

Dr. Roberta A. Newton, PhD from Temple University College of Health Professions in Philadelphia, PA, has been studying and researching why falls occur and how they can be prevented for many years. From the most overlooked areas of the home to making it easier to navigate through one’s home, Dr. Newton has been right on target indicating points of interest and vulnerability in everyday life. Visiting Angels of Auburn has partnered with Dr. Newton to fully utilize all of the in-depth research she and her team have compiled in our everyday caring for seniors activities.
