The CDC states that falls among older adults are extremely common with an estimated 2.5 million older adults treated for fall injuries in the U.S. every year. An estimated 25,000 of those fall injuries result in death. Justifiably so, our research showed that 8 out of 10 caregivers are worried about fall prevention for their loved ones. It was clear to us that we needed to provide resources that would not only address this common concern, but provide helpful and practical ways to ease stress and worry.
