​​​​​​​•Every 13 seconds, an older adult is seen in an emergency department for a fall? 
• Falls are the leading cause of hospitalizations among people 65 and older? 
• Falls are the leading cause of hip fractures, which can cause disability and even death? 

  • To keep people on their feet, American Bone Health has organized the largest community awareness campaign to support the National Council on Aging’s Fall Prevention Week in September and throughout the year.  Get your balance checked, and learn simple exercises you can do at home to improve balance, strength and flexibility.
