Falls Prevention

Falls are the leading cause of injury-related death and hospitalizations in Utahns age 65 and older. Consequences from a fall can severely limit one’s ability to live independently. Older adults who fall once are twice as likely as their peers to fall again. Despite these statistics, falls do not need to be an inevitable part of aging. Research has shown that many falls can be prevented. The CDC’s My Mobility Plan outlines actions you and your loved ones can take today to help you stay safe and independent.
