Each year more than 200,000 BC older adults will experience one or more falls, resulting in more than 10,000 hospitalizations and more than 800 direct and indirect deaths.

 

  • 1 in 3 seniors (those aged 65 or older) fall annually.

  • Falls among seniors are the leading cause of both fatal and non-fatal injuries.

  • Non-fatal fall injuries are associated with increased morbidity, decreased functioning and increased healthcare costs.

  • Falls and fall related injuries account for 10-15% of emergency department presentations and 6% of hospital admissions of those aged 65 years and older.

We have a specialized fall prevention program to help decrease the risk of falls.  We provide you with education exercises and training to help you be safe.  Group or individual sessions are available.
