Falls have always been a serious concern for older adults. A fall leads to and causes injury and secondary complications. With the upcoming demographic shift, falls and fall prevention will become a more significant public health issue.
The Centers for Disease Control's (CDC) team of researchers recently highlighted this growing widespread problem. Their team found that older adults who fall only once will double their chance of falling again. The CDC also discovered that out of these falls, one out of every five would cause a severe injury. Older adults, their loved ones, and medical professionals understand these statistics. Due to this, less than half of older adults will notify their doctor of a fall.
They fear their doctor’s or family members prescribed lifestyle change, mobility device, or anything that would lead to decreased independence. Often this fear could come from the first-hand experience. For example, they may have had a neighbor who fell and broke their hip and watched them move into an assisted living facility. The disconnect between what they feel they need to age in place safely and what they may have seen as an overcorrection, forced to leave their home and community.
