Falls and their related complications are a major threat to independent living and are the leading cause of both fatal and non-fatal injuries among adults over age 65. Falls are the number-one cause of hospital admissions for injuries in older adults, and are responsible for increased use of medical services.

Each year, up to one-third of adults over 65 who live at home experience a fall, and almost two-thirds who suffered a fall within the past year will fall again. Older adults with chronic conditions are at higher risk of falls, making older adults dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid particularly vulnerable.

Falling is not an inevitable part of aging. This webinar will provide an overview of the importance of falls assessment and falls prevention for older adults and their caregivers and offer concrete interventions and strategies for providers to improve mobility and prevent falls.
