Join speaker Kim Monette, PT, Massachusetts Clinical Supervisor, as she discusses healthy aging and steps to help prevent falls.

Falls are a major threat to the health and independence of people aged 65 and older. Each year in the U.S., nearly 1/3 of older adults experience a fall. Falls can be deadly.

Falls are the leading cause of injury deaths among older adults. 1 out of 10 falls results in a serious injury, such as a hip fracture or head injury, that requires hospitalization.
