Senior Fall Prevention

Senior clients have a higher risk of falling. Falls often result from balance issues. 65% of seniors over 60 experience dizziness or balance loss. This is due to decreased muscle strength, reduced joint flexibility, declining vision, deterioration of the vestibular system. This “functional degradation” slows reaction time.

Prevention Tip: Seniors should avoid hazardous situations, as their bodies cannot react as quickly as when they were younger
