3 Ways to Maintain Balance, Prevent Falls
With age comes an increased danger of falling. Practice these exercises to boost your odds of staying upright.
Falls are a leading cause of injury in older adults. In fact, as many as one-half of people age 65 or older will experience a fall this year. But falls are not inevitable. Getting regular hearing and vision exams, talking with your doctor about medications that could affect your balance, wearing non-slip, thin-soled shoes, making sure your living area is well-lighted, and removing clutter in your home and workplace are all steps you can take to avoid falls.
