They can impact an older adult’s life in more ways than one, often leading to prolonged hospitalization and reduced independence.

This can increase feelings of helplessness, anxiety, sadness, isolation, and depression.

The Risks of Fall-Related Injuries for Seniors
According to senior care experts:
- One in three seniors falls every year.
- One in five seniors sustains a serious injury as a result of a fall, including a broken hip, fractured bones, head trauma, and other injuries
- Seniors who fall once are more likely to fall again
- 800,000+ older adults are hospitalized due to fall-related injuries each year
- Recovery from a fall-related injury can take up to 12 months in a rehabilitation facility
- Many seniors never return home from a rehabilitation facility
While it is essential for seniors to educate themselves on preventing falls, they should not be afraid to lead normal, active lives as they age. While many think that falls randomly happen for older adults, the reality is one or more risk factors cause that falls. Risk factors for falls include medical conditions, unsafe home environment, poor eyesight, use of multiple medications, and dehydration, to name a few. If your loved one knows these risk factors, they can prevent falls.
