Mom or Dad not so steady on their feet anymore? Have they fallen recently… or are you losing sleep at night because you are afraid they will? Well you are not alone and you have good reason to be concerned! Each year, more than 1.6 million older U.S adults go to the emergency room for fall-related injuries. Among older adults, falls are the number one cause of fractures, hospital admissions for trauma, loss of independence, and injury deaths.
