Did you know that, “Six out of every 10 falls happen at home, where we spend much of our time and tend to move around without thinking about our safety,” according to the National Institute on Aging. More than one in three people age 65 years or older falls each year and the risk of falling—and fall-related problems—rises with age.
Many things can cause a fall. Your eyesight, hearing, and reflexes might not be as sharp as they were when you were younger. Diabetes, heart disease, or problems with your thyroid, nerves, feet, or blood vessels can affect your balance. Some medicines can cause you to feel dizzy or sleepy, making you more likely to fall. Other causes include safety hazards in the home or community environment.
The National Institute on Aging recommends changes to make to your home to help avoid falls and ensure safety. Preventing falls and fractures are a simple thing can change your life.
