Falling can be very dangerous for senior citizens. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 3 adults over the age of 65 falls annually, leading to a total of 2.5 million nonfatal falls. Between 20 and 30 percent of these incidents cause injuries such as head trauma, fractures and lesions. Because falls can be so serious, it's important to lower your risk of falling and prepare ahead of time for unavoidable incidents.
