Have a Great "Fall"
Fall begins on September 23rd this year. We all enjoy the falling leaves, but "having a fall" is not enjoyable for anyone, especially for older Americans. According to the National Institute on Aging, "...each year, more than 2 million older Americans go to the emergency room because of fall-related injuries. A simple fall can cause a serious fracture of the arm, hand, ankle, or hip."
But don’t let a fear of falling keep you from exercising and being physically active. Overcoming this fear can help you stay active, maintain your physical health, and prevent future falls. The good news is that there are simple ways you can prevent most falls. See this link for more information:
