Surprising Truth #1 - Falls are Common

More than 1 in 3 people over the age of 65 will suffer a fall EACH YEAR. The occurrence of falls is higher than epidemic levels and, unfortunately, is increasing.

Surprising Truth #2 - Falls are Impacting

Unfortunately, falls don’t just happen with life moving on in the same way. In many cases, a fall becomes a major, usually negative, life event.
Falls can impact many things:

  • Independence
  • Confidence
  • Mobility
  • Finances
  • Ability to live life to one’s potential

Falls can result in serious injury & are the leading cause of injury-related deaths for people over 65.

Surprising Truth #3 - Falls are Misunderstood

Beyond tripping on the edge of a carpet, there are many surprising reasons for falls. Knowing more of the reasons – especially the less talked about ones – is key to fall prevention.

Factors can include:

  • Balance
  • Core strength
  • Medications
  • Vitamin levels
  • Blood pressure
  • Short-term illness
  • Available handrail-type support

Surprising Truth #4 - Fall Prevention is Complex

Falls can be difficult to solve because of:

  • Denial
  • False beliefs
  • Stubbornness
  • Reluctance to change

It’s one thing to be in your prime. It’s another thing to ignore shortcomings, navigate stubbornness, or move through false beliefs when you are no longer in that physical prime.

We’re talking a big upside. Many of the factors that contribute to falls can be identified and easily addressed before they cause an incident. That’s why it is estimated that up to 50% of falls can – and should – be prevented.
