Senior falls educational event offered at Hudson Hospital May 18
Hudson Hospital will be hosting a senior falls educational event, “Get a Grip on Falls and Trips,” on Thursday, May 18, from 10 a.m. – noon in the hospital conference center.
According to the latest research, one in every three people, age 65+ living in Wisconsin, are at risk of falling this year. Many of these falls may cause serious injury such as head trauma or fracture; and falls are the second leading cause of accidental death. Knowing the risks for falling and following prevention guidelines can help you and those you care about avoid a fall.
At the “Get a Grip on Falls and Trips” event, you’ll find out if you’re at risk for falling and how to reduce your risk factors. The event topics include: hearing and eye care resources; blood pressure screenings; nutrition consults; exercise and balance activities; home safety evaluation tools and many more resources.
