Seniors Falling and What Happens Then?

You get the call in the middle of dinner.  The Fire Department is at moms house and it turns out she has fallen. They need you to get there right away!  As you are rushing over, you think about what might be happening and it occurs to you that the same thing happened about a month ago.  She was walking through the grocery store and she fell, the ambulance was called and she was taken to the emergency where a few hours later you were able to take her home.

Seniors fall every day, sometimes they get up brush themselves off and continue on, but it is so important to understand falling and what the consequences can be if not properly evaluated.Dr. Leslie Kernisan MD, MPH is a medical doctor who works with seniors and she has written this article on falling.   Preventing Falls In Aging Adults
