Many people think falls are a normal part of aging. The truth is, they’re not.
Most falls can be prevented—and you have the power to reduce your risk.
Exercising, managing your medications, having your vision checked, and making your living
environment safer are all steps you can take to prevent a fall.
Every year on the first day of fall, we celebrate National Falls Prevention Awareness Day to
bring attention to this growing public health issue.
