Preventing Falls Among Seniors

The BC Falls and Injury Prevention Coalition has launched a month-long campaign aimed at preventing falls among seniors.
Heather Fudge is a Clinical Nurse with Island Health, specializing in Senior’s Health.

 

 

Fudge says falls are the leading cause of injury-related deaths and hospitalizations for BC seniors.
She says there are some ways to help prevent them…including staying physically active, and making your home safer by adding handrails and removing things you can trip over.
