Falls are serious at any age and falling once doubles your chances of falling again. As one out of five falls does cause a serious injury which can limit mobility, reduce daily activities and make independence more difficult. Breaking a bone such as a wrist, arm, ankle or hip, after a fall becomes more likely as a person ages. Breaks and fractures from falls can cause serious complications, and even affect mood and management of other conditions. Each year, millions of older adults—those 65 and older—fall. In fact, one out of three older adults falls each year, and at least 250,000 are hospitalized for hip fractures.
