BALANCE / FALL PREVENTION – FALLS

FALLS

  • Not a normal part of aging (National Council on Aging (NCOA), 2014)
  • A major global health problem (World Health Organization (WHO), 2014)
  • The second leading cause of accidental injury or deaths worldwide (WHO, 2014)
  • Fall rates increase with age (Currie, 2008)
  • Age alone does not identify older adults most likely to fall (Wu, Yang, Kuo, Wong, and Liaw, 2013)
  • A third to three-quarters of falls in older adults occur at home (Gopaul and Connely, 2012)
  • 33% of those aged 65 years and older fall each year (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 2013)
  • Falls affect 50% of older adults over the age of 80 (Ambrose, Paul, and Hausdorff, 20 13)
  • 37.7 million falls worldwide are severe enough to require medical attention (WHO, 2014)
