Fall is just around the corner, but falls shouldn’t be just around the corner for older adults. That’s why Carilion Trauma Services is joining forces with the National Council on Aging (NCOA) and the Falls Free® Coalition. While falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injury for people 65 years of age and older, they are not an inevitable part of aging. This year’s Fall Prevention Awareness Day theme, Take a Stand to Prevent Falls, seeks to raise awareness about how to prevent fall-related injury among older adults. Take initiative in your health and help prevent falls.
