Every 11 seconds an older adult is treated in an emergency room for a fall-related injury that can lead to costly hospitalization, extensive rehabilitation, and social isolation. Center for Elders’ Independence (CEI) will host a Fall Prevention Forum featuring information and resources about the importance of fall prevention, live demonstrations of fall prevention techniques, and opportunities for attendees to ask doctors, physical therapists and occupational therapists questions about preventing falls. Attendees will be able to experience exciting virtual reality displays, receive safety tips on how to reduce falls at home, learn ways to recognize warning signs that may be precursors to a fall, and discover the best questions to ask doctors about fall prevention.
