Nationwide, falls are the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries among adults aged 65 years and older. During 2014, approximately 27,000 older adults died because of falls and 2.8 million were treated in emergency departments for fall-related injuries. And those numbers are on the rise. The good news is that there are simple things that people can do to reduce the risk of falling, as illustrated in this video, which won first prize in the National Council on Aging 2016 Falls Free® Video Contest.
