Falls are the number one reason we see adult patients in the Trauma Center at UNC Hospitals. Senior adults are at a higher risk of falling than other adults. While accidents do happen, falls do not have to be a natural part of aging. There are many things senior adults and their loved ones can do to reduce their risk of falling while leading a full, active life.
UNC Trauma offers National Fire Protection Association’s Remembering When Fire & Falls Prevention Program presentations and Matter of Balance Falls Prevention Program coach trainings in our Trauma RAC region. For more information on bringing these programs to your community please email Lindsay Bailey at email@example.com.
