Do you know if your aging loved one is falling?

Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), millions of Seniors fall each year and less than half inform their families or doctors. If your loved one has fallen their chances of falling again doubles. The affects of a fall can have serious impact on your loved ones overall well being. Falls are especially traumatizing for Seniors with memory loss such as Alzheimer’s or Dementia. Pain, hospitalization, immobilization, increased confusion, etc can have a negative impact and make recovery challenging.
