Falls and Fall Prevention discussed on Eye on Oshkosh

0

One in 4 Americans aged 65+ falls every year. Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for older Americans. Falls are costly—in dollars and in quality of life. However, falling is not an inevitable part of aging. Through practical lifestyle adjustments, evidence-based programs, and community partnerships, the number of falls among seniors can be reduced substantially.

On this edition of Eye on Oshkosh we’re going to talk about falls and fall prevention, but we’re also going to learn about what the fire department and a number of other stakeholders in the community are doing to partner together to address the issues of falls and fall prevention.
