Falls Prevention

Did you know that more than one-third of adults age 65 and older will fall at least once per year?  Falls are a leading cause of injury and even death in older adults, but they are by no means inevitable.

While falls are no more likely for LGBT older adults than non-LGBT people, sometimes we need reminding about things that affect everyone.  With that in mind, SAGE has produced a new fact sheet, “Ten Things Every LGBT Older Adult Should Know About Falls Prevention.”  You can find it here:  http://www.sageusa.org/uploads/SageInsert_FallsPrevention_web.pdf
