"Staying on Your Feet....Balance Awareness & Cognitive Function"
Every second of every day in the United States an older adult falls, making falls the number one cause of injuries and deaths from injury among older Americans. These are the cases that are reported! Although one out of four older adults fall each year, less than half report that fall to their doctor. Residents ages 65 and older account for 88% of all fall deaths and 75% of nonfatal fall hospitalizations in the state of Florida. There are ways to protect yourself! Join SBB University and our panel of experts as we discuss how to screen for falls and how important your hearing, vision, and even your exercise habits are when it comes to staying on your feet.
